I know that there are some great models of diners, greasy spoons, and other 'fine' eating establishments available on the market. Until now, we have not devoted a Gallery theme to these 'roadside delights'. That is about to change!

Many thanks to John J. for suggesting this theme.

As always, both model and prototype photos are welcome. So search your collection of photos, and post away.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Here is a diner that was recently built near where I live. I think it is a pretty good replication of a 30's to 40's diner.

Karl & Louis, thanks for starting us out with a few model photos.

John, they really did a nice job of catching the look of a classic diner.

A friend of mine is good friends with Jim Sacco, at City Classics. He is also a big fan of diners and gas stations. So, it was no surprise that when he gave Jim input to this kit before it came out in production.

So, when the kit finally came out, I had to build it.



I also detailed the interior of the model. This was the first model I ever did this with.
