    Default Walthers - Vintage Dairy Queen build

    My buddy is building a coffee table layout.
    He is reluctant to build building kits, so I volunteered to help him out with a couple.

    He is looking to model the late 50’s so the so my only problem is I can’t follow my modeling muse and heavily modify or kitbash this building.

    You can always stick to the basic plan and turn up the detailing.

    For best results, paint it. Maybe some weathering. And add plenty of signage.

    I did my own version some years ago before I knew there was a kit (it could still use more signs.)

    So I know it's been a while, but I finally sat down and finished this.
