Here is a build I made for a gentleman from a 1960’s Walther’s passenger car and converted to a diner – this was a wood and metal car with a scratch build add on, custom details, custom decals, and a few other custom pieces. As with everything I build I always see things I would have done differently, would have done better and changes I would have made but that is the process of constantly improving. I never think the pictures look as well as the actual build and I never photoshop images.
Ever screw up? I know I do and I forgot to remove a sold model from my store site that had been for sale for a few week and and as soon as I sold it off the store site I sold it on the store site … OOPS! So I had to try to build a suitable replacement right and after talking to the customer I designed a new logo and signage for this build to rename it to a building they grew up with.
A here are the results …
An old Bettie Page and Tempest Storm Burlesque … naturally this place didn’t really exist but image if it did. Lit with 12VDC LED lighting, custom made signage and decals.
The latest build a kit from Downtown Deco it’s Addams Ave Part II and all the decals are mine and the kit has a few modification but not many … this one as many of mine are from the wrong side of the tracks, guess you have to build what you know.
Another build based on another old kit … DPM’s Robert’s Dry Cleaning. All custom decal work, weathering, paint and a few addition to give character.
