How people display
Well, I've got the usual Carney displays and I have been building dioramas for the past 3 years so I like to set scenes. Recently, I put together this "Goldvarg Tribute" at the Sinclair service station to celebrate his release of the 1957 Pontiac Star Chief and the 1950 Chevrolet Fleetline Deluxe 4dr sedan with Sergio arriving in his '64 Cadillac.
Very neat concept - love the band!
2nd picture: I see that even the pigeons are enjoying the day.
I use the ultimate diorama, a model train layout based on NYC.
Always fun to see your train layout. Such detail and action just like the 1/1 NYC.
Is the Sinclair station a kit or scatchbuilt?
@mg-harv That was a scratch build. I could have done some things better, but, overall, it was fun in an obsessive, time-consuming way!
Amazing diorama with exceptional details. My model railroad layout is much simpler and it's 1/64 scale so not good for displaying my 43rd scale vehicles.

@john-quilter Nice vintage layout, John - American Flyer, I assume? (apologies for promoting a train discussion breaking out on a 1/43 forum....)
I also have a 1/64 scale model railroad, see below picture. Though generally not good for photographing 1/43 scale cars, there is one place on the road to/from town that works. The road is at bottom-right in first picture. Buildings and 1/64 scale cars will appear in background. The 1/43 scale cars shown are a Conquest 1960 Desoto and Brooklin 1954 Cadillac.

Thanks for sharing, Ed - very nice layout -one rarely sees an airport scene, so that's very cool. And agree - your spot to photo 1/43 models is great.
Love the train layouts guys. I had a fairly extensive N scale layout until we moved to this house twenty some years ago. At that time I donated several trains, buildings, track, roadbed, etc. to a local museum. It breaks my heart that the trains are all packed away and don't see the light of day.
Love seeing peoples displays - Thank you all.
Roger, your amazing Sinclair station reminded me of the "olden days" when service stations were - really busy.
PTC, NYC! - Outstanding!!
John and Ed - Wonderful seeing your train layouts mit automobiles sprinkled here and there. The flight line with a couple of Skyhawks and the Corsair was icing on the cake Ed.
Models = Miracles in miniature = Holding History in ones hand
Cheers and Happy Collecting,
