All of models below are work I've done for the MichLTC display at the 2001 Great American Train Show--Novi Expo Center, January 13-14.


November/December 2000

Ever since Lego came out with their McDonald's, I've wanted to do a more realistic one. When this is finished it will have an interior--one of the few I'm doing for Michigan GATS 2001 that will. Notice the drive-thru in the bottom photo.

Gas Station

December 2000

This gas station, while not based on any one building, represents an art deco gas station from the 1920s. While a few changes and updates have been made over the years, it maintains its character as an Art Deco building. Sadly, I have no gas station baseplate, but a simple roadplate does the trick.


November 2000

This is a semi-Greek Revival bank from the mid-19th century. This model is also based on no one example. The Greek facade fronting a red-brick building, the inclusion of arches, and other features are typical of the Greek Revival in small-town America.

Signal Tower

November 2000

This is a typical signal tower from the late 19th century. Obviously it has been well-kept up over the years..


December 2000

This is a 9-story office building. Originally I was going to have a helicopter that flew around the middle; while I got the mechanism to work, I had too many problems with binding gears. I may still make a helicopter fly around the top.
