      It did. But I don't see a line of people waiting to get in. I wonder why?.................

      Well there are 2 victims, oops I mean customers awaiting their fate.  Though it's not in the picture there is an outhouse in the back that does have a line!  Does that count?

      Well, Bob you can certainly have the name if it's not being used. I'll put you in touch with the sign guy, but you may get whatever he thinks you need.

      He's either Swedish or a cranky old Vietnam Vet. If he comes your way ---- HIDE!

      I have the eatery assembled, lit, patrons in place, and stairs and ramp. Just waiting for figures I ordered. The chef has to be "just right", and I can't quite find the right one. Most I have are too big.

      I'm still looking for a chef/cook for Monella's and think that with a bit of "dirtying up" Food Truck Chef Victor might be just the guy to hire as his resume says he's schooled in the fine culinary arts.

      Even though this is a Bachmann Car, 1/32 figures seem to look the best. So I am waiting for my order to get here. Meanwhile I'm busy breaking things.

      The only Food Truck Chef Victor was 1/24.

      Here is one that I built for the 2019 MIK challenge named after favorite dinner in Ormond Beach in the owners favorite color, made it from leftover pieces of a Bachmann combine that I had made "Rosy's" caboose from, fun build

      Well, after ordering figures and waiting 2 weeks, I got a notice that the seller is no longer an ebay member. Ebay did refund my money though.

      I snatched a figure earlier who looks like Flo is going to be our head cook.

      Ok, you know how you spend half your life collecting stuff, and the other half trying to find it? I found a whole bagful of Aristo figures including the one I just bought. I should have a picture shortly now that we hired a cook and a waitress!

      I am pretty sure it's just me...but my very first impression of this is "Why is that guy barfing out the window?"

       

      Nice work, BTW.

      Stick A Fork In It, It's Done

      We got the new cook behind the counter.

      Flo, the waitress (still have to make her nametag).

      Interior shot with the lights on.

      "Comin' right up!"

      Money shot. The sign actually rotates!
