Mickey's Diner, 1955

This is probably not what you thought it was. Instead of being an actual picture from the 1950's, it's another one of my "mini dioramas" featuring some of my 1:64 scale M2 Machines Auto-Thentics diecast cars. These little cars are just loaded with detail! The hoods and doors open and they have real rubber tires and metal bases. And did I mention all the detail they have in the interior and under the hood? Marvelous is all I can say!

 

This picture features the following M2 Machines Auto-Thentics, from left to right:

1954 Chevrolet Bel Air

1955 DeSoto Fireflite

1953 Ford Crestline Victoria

1955 Pontiac Star Chief

 

I'm telling you, if you see some of these in a store somewhere, you have to check them out! Ever since I picked up the 1955 Pontiac Star Chief, I've been wanting to feature it in some kind of picture like this. Something that still amazes me when I work up pictures like this is that this particular image is only about 7 inches wide! 1:64 scale cars are perfect for this medium.
