I'd been thinking about a simple backdrop to display a few cars on & use for pics ect. It stayed as just idea's due to not having the time or skill to make one. I got chatting to another modeller on an English site (Rods & Sods) & we bounced idea's about after I saw a couple of his small displays.

 

I was VERY pleased when we did a deal & several weeks later, Peppershakers Diner arrived in the post :)

 

Here's a couple of quick pics, with more to follow soon.

As an added bonus & big surprise, it has a working neon sign !

I owe a very big thanks to Andrew (Voyager) for bringing an idea to life in 1;25 scale.

 

The 57's & 55 are mine, most built many years ago.
