    Many thanks to Zathros for your always kind words! :)

    Here some photos of the assembly of the model:

    In this post you see the walls of the garage and the assembly of the doors and windows.

    For this model I used 180 grams cardboard sheets and with cardboard packaging boxes, I reinforced the inside walls.

    Thanks again, Zathros! :)

    Here is the second part of the assembly of the Texaco Vintage Service Station Paper Model In 1/25 Scale.

    I reinforced walls but not the windows, so that light can pass from the inside out.

    In these two pictures above you can see two ways to brighten this model with LED bulbs: the simplest way, linking the LEd directly in a battery or using an old cell phone charger. In that case you will have to use a resistor with the lamp.

    These dioramas are incredible. A very interesting display tying many of these together, with other cars and planes, the possibilities are endless! :)

    Oh my Lord, you guys could actually hook up, that could be really great, or bad, I think it would be great though. :)

    Well a few years late to this party - but great work. You wouldn't happen to know of a Alamo paper model? (As in remember the...) Mauther, you have inspired me to try this one!
