In October 2015 I began the building and painting of my 28mm Gangsters “& Stuff” collection.  When I began collecting the pieces for this about a decade ago it was going to be a gangster collection, but over time other things began to catch my eye and the collection expanded to include Batman and a catch-all group I call the Gordon Institute for Archeology and Paranormal Study, and that group allowed me to include the Institute’s version of the Ghostbusters.  The gallery is huge with more than a hundred pictures, a long write-up, four 5 ft. x 7 ft. table layouts, a city of approximately 35 buildings and more than 50 vehicles, a waterfront that includes a dock that is 17 inches wide and 5 feet long holding three warehouses, a crane and a fish cannery, a freighter, two tugs, two fishing boats and three speedboats, a sewer, Wayne Manor and the Batcave, plus the Gordon Institute campus.  The collection took just over a year to paint and construct, and from set-up through photographing to clean up the pictures, it took just over 25 hours to do over three days… a long weekend.  I’ve attached a few sample pictures here.  I hope you will take a look at the entire gallery when you have some time.  I think you will have some fun.  You can find it at www.warin15mm.com/28mm-Gangsters---Stuff.html.

Stunning! So many small beautiful details I'm going to have to go through the gallery over and over again. I love the Bat Cave and the Speakeasy. The detective diving for cover in particular, absolute magic.

My initial comment of "outstanding  Hypno Hypno" was made prior to visiting your blog. Now I have - WOW, I'm speechless - your combination of ideas, connections and execution is simply stunning. Truly inspirational.

Thanks so much for all the wonderful comments.  I had a great time with this project... lots and lots of crazy stuff.  I know the gallery is huge, but I hope that some of you will find the time to travel through it; I think you will find it a fun ride with a few unexpected smiles as your reward.  Dave, I hope you got to see the Pulp Alley shoeshine stand... I love it.  Thanks again to all who took the time to write.  Much appreciated.  Richard
