Diner
An -almost- typical american diner.
About this creation




The roof is semi-transparent. I know that is not exactly prototypical, but works out really nice. It could have happened in 1959, yes it could!

With a minimum of difficulty the roof can be removed;






I wanted to show teh highly detailed kitchen and counter, but itīs really difficult. You should see a frying-pan and a coffee-machine. (among many other things)

Two cupboards and the refridgerator actually opens.
I ran out of space, but the use of panels almost yielded another stud of width...

The semi-transparent roof allows for a nice interior lighting effect;


I havent decided on the NAME yet. Suggestions welcome!

As always the level of detail couldn't be higher. There is something soothing to all your designs, maybe something nostalgic, I don't know?

This is terrific. I really enjoyed all the details and the styling that gives the 50's diner feel. The sign is amazing!

Beautiful!! The "Inn" details (lol) and the atmosphere are very convincing. WHy don't you call it: "Hoex'Diner"? Sounds cool to me. But you will have to make your own sticker, won't you?

Brilliant! To me the architecture of these types of buildings are about as exciting as looking at the side of an autocamper but you have still done an excellent and well detailed presentation of it here :-) The interior is freakishly well done! The salt & pepper shaker, the jukebox, the soft ice machine, the register.. All epic and well done ideas! the furniture and floor is very nice too - as are the outside surroundings.

A great moc! The detail is great and I love the colors. As for the name, how about Chap's Diner? Any ways, great build!

Awesome restaurant, my favorite type too, what other restaurant serves pancakes 3 meals a day? Very good for such a small space, even compared to one twice the size this is amazing actually. I love it how the thing really feels alive, there is food on the shelves, people are walking around, really adds to the MOC. I might have to borrow your booth idea if I ever build a Diner (which I'm sure I will), since it is much better then the ones I have come up with. Great MOC!

So awesome. Its literally perfect, there's not a lot else to say haha:)

I too like the Jukebox. Why not call it "The Juke Joint"? That's what my parents used to call the places that kids hung out in, in the 50's....."They're probably at some Juke Joint"

All the little details are what make this super great. The burger sign, the red booth seating, the juke box and the pie display - all pure genius.

Wow, that's so cool, so 50s and with so many details! My favourite detail is the jukebox. Great job! :-)) Why not call it "Dex's Diner" just like in Star Wars Ep. II? ;-)) Or how about "Mel's Drive-In" like in American Graffiti?

Lovely, and it looks very authentic; right down to the Wurlitzer. Wonderful.

Quoting LukeClarenceVan The Revanchist Then continuing the SNOT to allow for a row of grills was truly masterful. Great work!
Thanks man. Really it was more of a necessity, as 4 bricks snot works fine, while only 3 bricks would have caused more headaches.

Quoting Oran Cruzen Great taste, pun?
Ha, good one! I was thinking more in the line of Graceīs (Bus Stop), Lizīs, Alīs, Joeīs, Fatīs, Jillīs, Maryīs. But itīs not... "spiffy" enough... ;-)

Quoting Dave Kaleta How are you accomplishing the diagonal striping of red and dark red on the sides? Very nice work. ~Dave
With lots of 2x4 wedgeplates (see Flickr). What is really crazy are the two rounded corners...

A very original build! As for a name, Who owns the place? You could just name it after the person who owns it like "Henrik's Diner". ~Raven~/~Starscream~

Excellent diner! The overall shaping is great, my favorite details: the color play at the sides, the tilted windows and that very lovely Hamburger sign. Yummy! Nice use of those Friends parts, too.

Impressive! The coffee maker is brilliant, and the red/dark red pattern along the exterior is cleverly done, I've never seen that technique before. Then continuing the SNOT to allow for a row of grills was truly masterful. Great work!

This is lovely Henrik, as usual ;-) Love the exterior, but it's the lovely interior details that made my eyes light up and also this Diner means we're in for another fantastic City scene from you, I cannot wait to see it complete. Your last massive project really sticks in my mind.
