Or glear plasticard and make a shop front

Shop window front would look good. Then you could have signage on it. Is this the 6R4 shop?

6R4 shop yes
I will have a look when the bits start being added and decide if its to have a front, but if it looks as good as the escort one I will be happy

Quite taken back there as I just received a nice pm asking about the diorama if its forsale when done.
I wont reveal whos asked, but they have asked for first refusal on it should I sell
At the mo its not forsale as I want to see what its like first when done and see what detail gets put into it Very Happy

Hi Mark,

I wondered if there are going to be any MG or Rover branded shelving units in the 'shop', perhaps even a small model car display, which seemed to be in several showrooms I've been in over the years! Any chance of an 'in progress' shot or two? Would be interesting to see the diorama in progress.

I'll get back to you with a firm order for some bits and pieces in a fortnight's time, after my two shows have finished. Rehearsals and shows solidly for the next 2 weeks - all good fun, but does cramp the modelling!

Cheers, Steve

Still sorting parts for the diorama, but here is the latest on it


I am going to put in a stick out skirting board in white that parts can sit on aswell as on the grid rack.
The counter will be in the top left corner

Thanks Steve
quite enjoyed doing the ford one because of the load of escort stuff I have and could do a couple more with the amount of spare stuff.

Always wanted to do a 6R4 shop too so I will put as much parts possible into it
