I was not familiar with the company, but they had some great Marx playsets for sale.
They were one of two or three companies at the show with some nice Marx re-issue figures.

You get the pieces, put them together, and do the painting. It's a little work, but as you can see, there are some great figures!

|Scenics by Paragon - Fort Apache, hill with destroyed cabin (hill is two pieces, cabin can be removed), and four smaller terrain pieces|
|This is an overview of the entire table. All items on the top are Marx. The make-shift roads are toilet paper, the handiest thing I found available. The high white foam piece on the left is the start of a steep cliff that I would like to create all around the back of the layout.|
|Photo on left shows road from town to fort. On right is "main street." It's narrow, but I can show furniture in both structures this way. I may build an insert for this section that will allow the road to be a couple of inches wider and will lift up this section a couple of inches higher.|
|A view of "main street" from the other side. I'll use the 60mm cowboys for the town. I plan to put one more cabin just behind the nearest town front. That will allow me to display cabin furniture also.|
|Closeup photo of the fort. Seems like a nice size that will let me display a good number of the 54mm cavalry.|
|Plenty of room for display and storage under the table. All three of the sections at the right can be seen in the top photo above. I have a little painting to do if I ever get off my duff!|
