Hello. As I mentioned in a thread, I'm planning an On30 layout. I plan it to have cartoon characters. Any Advice?  Huh?

  A man after my own heart, or should I say twisted mind....
  Looney Tunes are the best...years ago I found some small xmas decorations of Bugs as a Salvation Army bell ringer, Daffy as a mailman, Sylvester and Tweety with winter scarves on fighting, and Marvin in a flying saucer...they scale/measure to about o scale, so on my xmas teee platform they can be spotted in various places.. Grin
  In a local Eckard's drug store, I found a 1/43 scale 1940's Batmobile complete with the Batman...guess where he will be soon? Roll Eyes
  It's best to just kind of 'sprinkle' them around and watch visitor's reaction when found. Cheesy

  Have fun and enjoy!

Regards,

Howard

"Fiddletown & Copperopolis"? The railroad as the cartoon itself? Bachmann makes all the elements - 4-4-0's, 2-8-0, geared locos, railbus (you can recreate the cartoon of the "natives" giving the railcar salesman the "blanket treatment" - http://narrowmind.railfan.net/Railbus/F-C-McKeen.jpg - or the inauguration of "Leaping Lizard" service - http://narrowmind.railfan.net/Railbus/F-C-railcar.jpg).

I keep wishing that some model railroad manufacturer could come to a happy and inexpensive understanding with the Charles Addams estate. Considering the role that O-gauge tinplate played in both the Addams Family television series and the first Addams Family movie, I think a model railroad/tinplate/Addams Family connection is a natural.

Imagine Gomez, Morticia, and the kids waiting for a train. Or some poor wretch hoisted high in a man-sized cage from a old-time High Ball signal. Or a happy Pugsley Addams joyfully awaiting the receipt of his pet reptilian monster from the REA man.

Some of the wargamer figures might have possibilities for a Morticia or possibly an Uncle Fester.

Other than that, it looks like make-your-own.

Anyone know how I can modify keychain figures such as these?

What is it you want to modify? If you want to cut off the hole for the key chain, you can use a knife or Demel to cut the part, then just match the paint.
