This is a little 1:87 doughnut shop I built not too long ago. The doughnut was from a Walthers doughnut shop kit, also 1:87 scale, the doors and window are Tichy Train, the electric and gas meter are 3D printed from Shapeways, and the structure was scratch built. I wanted the building to be ridiculously small for the size of the doughnut, add to the visual tension so to speak. My goal with these builds is not to create a factual/exact replica of any structure, but a caricature of a building. I try to keep the components in scale, but the structures as tiny as possible. I do measure to try and get a reasonable footprint, but not something you’d probably see in the real world. The height to width ratio is also important, again trying to keep it visually as interesting as possible.
Thanks … Erik
