the fantastic tree was made for me by Dave DENO, its a real big knarly oak, maybe 10--12" inches tall.  Have to be carefull where you use them ,as they can easily overpower a low building like the road kill .


I swapped him, a bunch of hydrocal building castings.

Hi Mike. A word of thanks. I've just been looking back through my research material of photos of diners and found yours among them. As I built Dougy's Diner for Updah in 2012 http://www.freerails.com/view_topic.php?id=7457&forum_id=4&page=18, it's clear that I drew much inspiration from your efforts as well as the Stoney Creek model so many thanks for that. I should have acknowledged it earlier.

YES AND YOU BUILT A GREAT DIORAMA STRUCTURE.........10 MOOSIES TO YOU SIR, THATS DOUBLE THE NORMAL 5 MAX


YOU COULD ALSO CONSIDER USING THE BACHMAN TROLLY BODY AS STRUCTURE FODDER

Thanks Mike, you're most kind. The trolley body's a fine idea for a building but the only two I've got found their way into Updah's steam tram and trailer car.

a lot of people bought those 3-4 years ago when they were down to $30 usa each, for the flat mechanism and just sold the rest for whatever they could get or trade.
I think i mounted one on the bachman railbus chassis, not sure, so many builds have been done.
Maybe have a poke thru some older pre 2012 CDR and see what pops up.
I think i shortened the trolley by one window on the side and cut the clerestory roof off one.
Take a BIG BOW on your diner build , you deserve it, tried to give you 10 moosies but was using fast reply and it would not allow it .
Only thing not up to rest of it was a cabinet inside in a muddy brown.

Yup, I agree. The cabinet was a cheap plastic furniture unit and a bit of an afterthought. I messed up on the paint and thought it wouldn't be seen, not intending then to take any photos, especially damning close-ups!
I've started another thread on Bachmann street car bashes so do add yours Mike.

Nice job Mike. The whole thing is great. It shows what can be done in a lot of areas. On the camera issue, I found that it helped me tune up the techniques a little. It shows just where my work said to me "that's good enough" The camera helps show me where I could do better. Thanks again for the pics.

Mike,
That is great looking piece and I like the humor. How long did the build take you from start to finish.
Sincerely,
Robert
