J.D. Simmons asked "Are any of you using "O" scale buildings/kits for dioramas?"
and I thought I might answer with some pictures. I hope they help.

What the heck. I haven't posted in awhile but have the code memorized. Always before the pictures were of normal size, but these are GIGIANTIC!!!
Help please, let me know what to do and I will correct the size. Thank you Karl Schnelle for telling me how to correct the photos.

Danbury Mint building

Model Railroad building (Rail King?) Changed the sign and it became mine. A Rolls/Bentley repair shop.

DM Gulf Oil with pit crew demo

DM Mobile Station station. A busy Saturday night with bluegrass accompaniment on the roof.

DM Saturday night diner

Pizza delivery. O gauge home with a 16 foot building strip picture background.

DM McDonald's. I cannot believe the detail in these DM buildings. I used to work in the 1st McDonald's to arrive in my home town, and when I removed
the roof of this building, I saw amazingly accurate details modeled that I had forgotten were in the real thing.

Background buildings & another O gauge building

Can you locate the two Kachina dancers? On roof & among cars.

Kids and bicycles outside the DM soda fountain.

A poster picture of Finzio's Garage. The garage is featured in a wonderful but fictional story of how road racing and the SCCA got it's start in the very
early 1950's. "The Last Open Road" by Burt Levy is the author.

DM Shell station did not fit into the 16' display case.

My little town's main street is located 4th shelf from the bottom. The 1/18th and 1/43rd scales displayed on other shelves are telling various automotive
stories such as Route 66 and the SCCA whose displays are pictured above.

Left side displays

Right side displays

And I hope you enjoyed the show.
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
