3rd Business Card Diorama
« on: May 22, 2020, 05:37:13 PM »
My parents were part of the people who left the Oklahoma/Arkansas region during the depression in the 1930s.

The shack we lived in when I was very young still exists today.

The size was 9 feet wide and 20 feet long.  No indoor plumbing.

A shack that size will fit on a standard business card in HO.

Here is my version of my childhood home.

Very cool concept and modeling! I like a finite space as I am terribly impatient...maybe I should build my layout one business card at a time  ;D
