  18. Okay guys I took the time to measure this one out, using my HO scale ruler. the dimensions are written in next the parts are full size, so you will have to do the math to scale them to what you want. http://s8.photobucket.com/user/mercman51/library/Construction%20Zone/Mels%20Drive%20In/Mels%20Full%20size%20dim?sort=3&page=1

Booth items were made from Popsicle sticks. ] ] Then I added some lighting for the interior. And finally a color shot. Also adding some roof details like air vents, and the such.
