Description

Classic Fun In The SunWith more drivers on the roads than ever, roadside eateries flourished along major highways in the 1950s. Ice cream became a staple, and going for ice cream a favorite summer pastime for locals and visitors alike. The stands themselves came in every shape and size, from simple, one-of-kind buildings housing local operations, to sophisticated designs that were growing into nation-wide chains. Both types had common characteristics including close proximity to the road for maximum visibility and accessibility to passing motorists, ample parking right next to the building, prominently placed service windows, colorful paint schemes, and eye-catching signage.

Now, one can be part of your HO layout with the Velvet Freeze Grill, representing a typical mom-and-pop ice cream stand of the 1950s and 1960s. Designed for easy construction the kit features laser-cut walls and "metal" roofing, as well as picnic tables, intricate icicle trim for the soffits, a resin ice cream cone, air conditioner and trash cans, plus full-color signs.

Assembled structure measures 4" Long x 4" Wide x 3" High

    Looks fine but it's hard to assemble

    Posted by Dmitry Nechaev on Jun 28th 2018

    It was extremely hard to assemble this building for me. There is a lot of tiny wooden pieces which you should stick to each other in many layers to get a window or a bench. That's complicated too much in comparison with plastic models and takes a lot of time indeed.
    When I constructed this cafee house, many pieces did not fit each other well enought and they were too fragile to use any force. When I used a sharp knife to make them fit better they breaked event after a little pressure. Also there is a problem with rafters for the roof. They are 9 on the scheme but in package they are 8. There is a solid space on a place where sould be the 9th piece.
    Despite all the constructing difficulties a resulting building looks very fine! It's very colorfull and shine building in my collection! However it's the wooden last I bought. Don't want to spend so much time on that.

    The perfect drive in for my town

    The American Model Builders Velvet Freeze Grill would be a great addition to a great model railroad layout. It is nice for the modler who models Small Town America especially somewhere in Florida where these places stay open all year round. Florida is certainly a land of Endless Summer.
