Default Scratch Built Crossing Signals

I recently began building model railroad crossing signals on a 1/10th scale or slightly larger than g scale. I bought dowels from walmart and used them to assemble the signals. Wire was attached to the signals before the models were spray painted allowing me to connect lights. The gates are made out of a flexible plastic that nicely sways realistically with the wind. I used Christmas lights for the signals and used cereal boxes and paper towel rolls to make the visors. Sheet metal was used for the supporting structure like rails, gate gear box and track side control boxes(not shown.
