    I have some plans for an Arnhem dio and have started on one of the buildings , although HO scale , its close enough for me , there are very few 1/72 buildings with the kind of detail that HO stuff has , so I thought I would give it a try , here is the interior before I close it up never to be seen again LOL , and a comparison shot with a 1/72 tank , I will have a large street section with streetcar as well , the only part I am not looking forward too is painting the figures , the scale is so damn small .

    GREAT work and skills, Steve!!! I always look forward to seeing your new creations. Please excuse my ignorance, but what does HO scale mean?

    HO is a common model railroad scale equal to about 1/87 scale , it will work as long as I dont get figures too close to doorways LOL .

    The building is almost finished , and here is a pic of the rough layout and the street car that will be in the dio , it is a great kit and comes with the poles for the power to the streetcar , the vehicles are shown for scale , but will not be used in the dio itself .

    Don't forget the red light district complete with figures. they have places in Europe where you can just window shop....

    1/72 scale is like those artists who transcribe bibles on grains of rice.
