Beautiful well built Plasticville original issue Frosty Bar, from 1952. This was marketed as HO scale, but is clearly too big for 1/87. I believe it fits more realistically as 1/48 scale. Moulded in light yellow, it has been cleaned, and the stainless steel or aluminum areas on the sidewalls (above and below the counters) have been chrome foiled. Window trim has been neatly painted in silver, front countertop has a beautiful worn patina to it, stools were missing and have been replaced with red thumbtacks (they actually look perfect!!). Roof has been sprayed flat grey with silver trim on the facade. Base has been sprayed a deeper gray. Period correct signage has been added as well. This is a really sharp piece. It can be weathered a bit for more realism if you wish. This will look perfect on your layout, or even to use as a display with your 1/43 collection. Free domestic shipping, no reserve!
