The Green 'T' indoor car show diorama

I built the car in the '60s show rod style and I figured it needed a place to be shown. -RRR

RRR,

This is the "awesomest" show kar display ever!  I kame from a time when you wouldn't have thought twice about building a display like this for you local Kar Show!  The Portland Roadster Show was where I first saw a hot rod/kustom kar show! Then when we were doing model kar shows in Seattle and Goodguys Puyallup Show the Kool Kar Displays started fallin' away.  Love what you've done!! -KK

You used to see displays like this in Model Car Science all the time!  This one looks fabulous and is a perfect enhancement to the model on display.  Era perfect too!

Some years ago my club did a display at our NNL on a 4x8 sheet of ply.  There were over forty cars on display in a modular show setting and it looked stupendous.  I tried to float the idea of an international modular show display, like the N scale railroaders do, when I used to post on the other Forum but the idea sunk without a trace.  Maybe it's time to get it going again?

I'll see if I can find some photos to show what we did.

Great work Rodney, inspiration galore right here!

 

Cheers

Alan
