      Neal's 2019 MIK Build

      My club layout has been developing a 1950’s city for the last couple years, and we could really use a diner.  Nothing says 1950s kitsch quite like a diner with a giant coffee pot on the roof, and luckily a city near me had one of those. The building still stands (although the coffee pot is long gone) so I have a prototype to work from.  Most needed materials are in my shop.

      Here's my napkin drawing, courtesy of Mrs. Neal (I hope it's not cheating to enlist her help!)

      Here are two more photos. One is how the original Coffee Pot diner looks today.  Pretty blah - it would be better if they hadn't removed the rooftop coffee pot years ago.  The other photo is the actual coffee [pot I will use for my model.  I picked it up a while ago at a garage sale.
