Walthers Vintage Dairy Queen:
« on: August 15, 2019, 02:06:03 PM »
Hi Guys:

I'm building a plastic kit for the first time in years. It's for a friends layout. We shall see how I do.

I think it looks good, Karl.  Remember the the architecture and materials on the prototypes was kept basic to keep franchise costs down. It would not have the more distinctive early century style of the wood structures many of us are building, nor the warm character of brick. Add a few period vehicles and some patrons and you have a great scene for any layout.
