    This is great, Val! Didn't catch this earlier. Yet another DOTKWA model, looks like one could just walk in, sit down and order a hot dog and a coke. Didn't some of these old diners have a pinball machine or two in a corner for the younger crowd? (hint hint :D )

    Excellent!!

    Wow Val, you've done very well:D :D :D

    Your cafe is very real. Love the menu boards, napkin and ketchup bottle too;) ;) ;) The booths are cool too, red vinal.

    Looking through the front window shot, reminds me of that famous shot called 'diners' or something like that. It was a view from the street, looking into the late night diners, in the cafe. I 'think' that there might even have been a article in MR about building that. I'm sure you have seen posters of it as well.:oops: I just can't think of the proper name, you know what I'm talking about don't you? The cafe even had a curved glass wall:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Any way, one of my first projects was a two story building with a cafe on the main floor and a pool hall upstairs. I built everything in the building including the pool table. So... I had to paint each piece of sand a different color to represent the pool balls:cool:

    My eyes have never been the same since

    ;) ;) :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :oops:

    Keep up the good work,
    :wave:
