Yep-if I made stuff like that for interiors, I might find ants and gekkos making lunch and setting fire to the styrofoam walls.
Fantastic stuff, Dallas.

Thanks guys!  Here's another bit of catch-up that brings us pretty close to the current state of things ... some Verlinden cans and boxes, Reality-in-Scale cans and various labels to make up some little groceries  to tuck into the corners of the shop here and there ... and super-jumbo Costco size bottle of liquid cement! :)



Got a neat set of 1/35 kitchen details from Eduard that includes some pre-finished photo-etched dishes ... so I thought it would be neat to make a little rack like this ...



A few big pieces of styrene and a LOT of little pieces -- ugh! :P



So we're pretty much at this point now.  Next up:
-- Paint the dish shelf and load 'er up ...
-- Make an asbestos mat to go under the stove ...
-- And some pressed tin panels to go behind the stove ...
-- Finish up the range hood and billyuns and billyuns of other little things ... that's all! :bg:

Latest progress:  I finally re-hung some 1:1 scale shelving in the utility closet after having the water heater replaced (er, some time ago) ... so it may be possible to sort out some of the piles of kits, parts and other crap that are all over the place ... and that might actually help with finding a few handy modeling bits.  We shall see! ???

Dallas,

In this months issue of Pingame Journal is an article about a guy that built a pinball arcade for his O scale railroad. Its complete with neon signs and several pinball machines. Its very cool and when I saw it I immediately thought of your sammich shop. You should check it out. I'd scan it and post pictures here but I'm afraid I'd be violating someone's copyright if I did.

Mike

Dallas-All I can add is that the fellow in the photos doesn't look like a cook...unless he's a logging camp cook.
Pick Pick Pick...

I love your stuff!
Woodie-now I know what to do with Grandt Line "wingnuts"...

I can't remember if I've mentioned this here ... but ALL comments & criticism are absolutely welcome!  In fact, criticism is highly valued on this end -- always appreciate that. 

With that said ... THANK YOU ... and you're absolutely right.  That guy shown in the previous photos is Curt Mudgeon, bumbling mechanic from the 1/35 auto repair shop across the street, who keeps coming in to see if he can get a dang sammich yet.  Thanks for mentioning that ... and any other "concerns" that might pop up. :apl:

Also, good eye on the wing nuts (used on the stove valves) ... those are actually from Bronco Models, who make several different types of injection-molded wing nuts for 1/35 scale.



We've got another guy in an apron awaiting assembly and paint to actually stand behind the counter!   This is another figure from MK35 Editions in France -- F143 Coffee House Owner.   I have a feeling that "Sal" will lose the tray, get his arms repositioned a bit and turn out to be a bit of a "character."  ;)

For those interested, MK35 has some rather nice 1940s-era civilian figures:  http://www.MK35.com

I've ordered some direct from them, from Fields-of-Glory Models in the UK and from RJProducts.com in the US.  They also have 1/43 scale figures, but I've only seen those on their web site.

Now, back to Curt Mudgeon's quest for a sammich ...




Mike -- The arcade sounds like fun!  Maybe we can get some of the players to come over to the sammich shop for sodas & ice cream when they take a break. :)

Dallas- you have put fun into this thing...thank you! A most enjoyable romp through the annals of the sammich shop which I hope will continue for a long time. And thanks for the link to that cool MK35 site. Although it is most all Euro style, much can be adapted or as I do...perverted.

Woodie

The sculpting on the MK35 figures -- especially the faces -- is top-notch (IMO) and they do have a lot of "civilian" figures from WWII era.  As you've noticed, they tend to be French and there can be a few more berets and scarves and such than you might like, but that part can be easily fixed!  (I'm leaving the beret on the sammich shop guy -- he'll be fun!)



In response to the proposed chat about 1/35 modeling ... I thought y'all might get a kick out of what happens when a 1/35 scale dude builds 1/20 scale airplane models ... (I'll save you the trouble of doing the math, that's 1:700 scale!) :)



Don't miss that bit where he says "working in larger scales makes things easier" ... classic! :)










BTW, these panels show Mr. Mudgeon in the garage, which is his "natural habitat" ...



Mr. Mudgeon is from MK35 Editions ... and I have a bunch more of their male civilian figures, which look great.  They only have a couple of female figures, which don't look as promising.  Millie (shown above) is from MasterBox Limited ... her floral dress was an experiment in miniature impressionist painting, and this is a conversation that soon followed! :)

Here's a link to a thread with lots of links to 1/35 (and larger) civilian figures:

Dallas, I sure am glad that RLF was down! Your humor is a breath of fresh soft coal smoke.

Now tell me that Camel flies!

Keep it up Bud!

A 1:35 scale airplane modeler after my own heart! Now that's really cool, Dallas. I'm smiling ear to ear.
