Boy you guys are determined I'm going to have a tire swing Icon_lol . Mark those all look to shiney to me but thanks. Now if you all will excuse me I have to dig thru my stuff and try to find one of those tires I think I still have somewhere.
Looking great as usual Mike.
Thanks Lynn!
I would think that a single strand hanging from a tree branch would not show much shine.Whether it is shiny or not you best hurry up cause kids grow up way to fast.You keep lolly gagging and they will be all grown up and moved to the big city. Wallbang

Good! That will save me from having to find that bleeping tire! Icon_lol
Looks like there are four tires on that station wagon, over yonder! Icon_lol

Don't be messing with my Woody! Curse Icon_lol
OK, thanks to Wayne for the rope we now have a swing. I also made a parking area to get the car off the driveway and added boxwoods on both sides of the steps onto the porch.
Mike, great modeled scene!
Nicely detailed scene, Mike, and the revised landscaping adds even more "curb appeal". Thumbsup Thumbsup

The overall scene looks great Mike, but - and please don't take this the wrong way - one thing spoils it for me. Constructive criticism - like I can criticise something so spectacular - the tyre swing seems too high - how would the child in it climb in?

Lengthening the rope would make the scene spot on.

Again, not meant to detract from your fantastic work. Your layout is one of the best I've ever seen. Big Grin
So what did you ultimately use for the rope?
Thanks guys! Dan it is too high, I didn't notice that til I took the pic. The only way to fix it is to either replace the rope or lower the tree and or tree branch. I'll work on that and get back to you. Richard, Wayne sent me some E-Z line, not sure what the diameter is you will have to ask him.
OK Dan I had to switch kids when I lowered the tire as the first one had her arms to high for the new position. The bottom of the tire is now a scale 22" off the ground. Yeah I know, now it's too low! Icon_lol
