One last upload to my blog here today before I upload the latest entry of the Bonds build on the OGR Forum (All of them will be uploaded to my blog here on the J&C O-Scale Archive, that way they will still be accessible after OGR purges their forum).
The Wildwood Harbor builds for Don Klose's B&S O scale empire is more or less done. BUT.... every so often he thinks of something he needs for it. And this is one of those things.
This Dippin' Dots ice Cream Kiosk is based on the design of the one on Morey's Pier in Wildwood, NJ. though it is a small accent peice it really wasn't an easy build. The kiosk is made from clear acetate and wrapped with 3M Scotchcal commercial sign vinyl. That way light can "bleed" through to light the logo and dots. It also has a interior complete with little Dippin' Dots!
The logo and dot I have to give credit to my daughter Amanda. She is a graphics designer and helps out a friend once in a while for a sign company he owns. Well in this case she helped out dad and Mom. She reproduced the logo for us in the same 3M Scotchcal vinyl. In the end it is a great looking peice for the boardwalk on Don's Layout. Enjoy Mark
