Mel's Drive - In

13 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

I got this a couple of weeks ago and just got around to taking picture . It's HO scale and looks to be about 12" x 18" when finished . At first it looked pretty basic but after a closer look it has a lot of details . All of the posts , brick walls , windows , doors , and frames are there , along with the nicely done Mel's sign in two sizes .

This has lots of possibilities with all of the lighting available including miniature neon light kits ! And there are plenty of cars available to fill the parking lot !

I hope you'll do a build up progress thread on this kit. I would love to see it come to life.

I agree that it would be nice in 1/25th scale but I don't know where I'd put it . It would measure 43" wide x 65" long !

Hang the size! They do this in 1/25th, I'm on it as soon as budget allows. I'll worry about display space later.

I might grab the HO one though just because. And some Alloy Forms and Jordan kits to go along with it.

Charlie, and any one else, if you do get the HO one, to convert it to 1/25th 1 inch eqauls 7 ft. 3 in's. in HO scale. Just measure it and scale up.

It's not beyond reason to do if the urge strikes. And the space can be found.

Add an addition like what George did . I display my dioramas usually one at a time .The largest , The Fish Inn , 3 feet wide - 4ft long can sit on a coffee table . Course that's me . I like spreading my art projects around the house too.................
