Here's another little gem I'm kinda proud of but I can't take all the credit. It was started by a VERY accomplished modeler in Germany by the name of Klaus Lassen. He put it on hold about a 1/4 of the way into it. I was able to talk him into letting me finish it and have it cast into resin so more modellers could get one! The beautiful castings have no seam, no flash and no pinholes. Casting credit goes to my buddy Jamie Rahmoeller. It's an Allison MD4560 automatic transmission used in modern heavy trucks, fire trucks, etc.

Here is the interior bucket for my 69 camaro pro touring car. It is sitting on a corvette chassis with independent front and rear suspension. The bucket itself is highly modified and the floor is scratchbuilt along with the roll cage and dash. Seats are from Scale Dreams.

Most of the interior to this building in HO scale.  Games dart board, pool table, stage, DJ booth, juke box, speakers, the bar.

Only things not scratch built are the wall kegs, and the people.

Not simple at all!  It takes skill to represent worn and weathered building materials and you have mastered that skill!  These building details look incredible :)
