Back when an order for "sinkers and suds" brought you doughnuts and coffee, gleaming stainless steel restaurants like Miss Bettie's Diner sprang up from coast to coast. Resembling railroad dining cars, these structures became hallmarks of the streamline era.
Miss Bettie's Diner brings the glitz of those days to the streets of your layout. It's a natural on Main Street or just outside of town along a busy highway. Like the prototypes, this detailed, easy-to-build kit (the prototypes were kits too!) includes streamlined fluted sides, large windows and a complete interior with tables, stools and counter, plus a small outdoor refrigerator shed and colorful signs.
Miss Bettie's diner kit comes with all grey panels, need to get silver spray paint to make the panels look like the aluminum color on real diners. I am using two diners for models, the 365 Diner in Brainerd MN and Zip's in Dayville CT. I purchased the Open Diner lighting kit for one of the interior windows and Luminous Advertising Kit to name the diner. Fit of parts is good, not too much trimming.
