More motels for the N folk

Been busy getting a few more motels ready for eBay. This batch will include another modern version of a Red Roof Inn and 2 RRIs converted to Motel 6.







Trying to get them done to sell before the holidays. After this I am retiring this type model and will be working on a small Waffle House and then classic and modern versions of IHOP.

Those buildings are great.
How are you able to cut out the windows that straight?

With it being siding that I am using, I use a new xacto blade after rough marking with a template piece.
Then I use a small flat and square file to trim the openings if needed.

The Waffle House will be a modern on like the one here that was just built in Eastlake, OH.





The IHOPs will be modern re-models like this;



The classic ones will be like this;

Great looking work! I'd like to keep up with these on eBay, drop a line when they are posted. Nothing like a motel to make a layout feel like home.

Ever eat at a new Waffle House? Just doesnt taste the same. I guess the grease has to build up for a while...
You`ll never find a Philly cheese steak on a menu in Philadelphia. It`s called a cheesesteak and we all know where it`s from...

Mmmmm.  Awful House!

How about a White Castle?  There's something every transition era eastern modeler needs!

Anyone ever been to the Texas Tavern in Roanoke?

You can't eat a Cheesey Western unless your stone drunk.  A cheeseburger with raw onions and a fried egg staring back at you.  I swore I would never drink again...

Sounds like they stole the "Borsch Burger" from Maple Hill, a Tulane student watering hole in Noo Awluns, except they fried the onions along with the egg on the same grill as the burger. Oh, the grease! Oh, the chloresterol!

How's this for timing-  I went over to my Dad's house tonight for my twin nephew's 5th birthday party.  Some relatives came up here (SE Wisconsin) from Chicago and brought all kinds of goodies with them.  I walked in and saw my Dad stuffing a Slider into his pie hole.  He must have seen the expression on my face, and without uttering a word, pointed to the dining room table.  There sat two 30 packs of White Castles, virtually untouched by the unappreciative mongrels surrounding the table.  Needless to say, I grazed to my heart's (and stomach's) content.  I even persuaded my 4-1/2 year old son to partake, and a new WC fan is born.  Ooops... I feel some trouble brewing down below... gotta run....
