FOS Kit of the Month - Toppers

FOS signs for this little diner are very nicely done. There even is curtains printed for the window interior. Note that huge exhaust fan on the smaller structures roof. Don't want to get sucked into that one.

I finished another FOS kit this spring that probably will not be used on the layout...likely a diorama. More on how I constructed it later. I find that many of FOS kits are missing parts and details...maybe a third of them. This one had all the parts which makes me happy. It is really hard to get Doug of FOS attention when mentioning the problem...George Dutka

Although the kit comes with roofing I changed it out for construction paper colored primer gray.

A look at the rear wall.

I changed out the smoke stack included in the kit which I felt was too large. I just used a piece of styrene tubing painted black.
