Shop Around The Corner
Posted by Coolfire on Sunday, April 5, 2015 2:21 PM

Hi there !

I'm new on Scale Auto Forum... I'm a little Frenchy and I build automotive dioramas with old US cars...

I would like to share with you my last diorama : A very small auto parts shop and garage :

Some close views

The Chevy 57 sign show how the cars are when they enter the shop and how they are when they leave it Smile

All is scratch made of wood, foam, photoeched brass, glass etc...

I hop you'll like it

Enjoy !

That displays some amazing detail, not to mention a lady that needs to invest in some curtains.

Very nice. I think the wino with the paper sack is a good touch.

A cool diorama.  I can imagine some sixties rock music blaring from a speaker someplace.
