Here’s something cool for you scaled-down Mopar fans. Barry Kroh of Bismark, North Dakota, built most of this diorama when he was 15-years old, and finished it when he was 16. He says that is back when he had more time on his hands, and he was dreaming of owning a real Mopar. Anyway, most of the display itself was hand built, as well as all the models on display. It is highly detailed, including the wall outlets, all of the necessary shop equipment, and the thing even lights up at night. You got it; all of the shop lights actually light up. There is even a trouble light under the yellow Charger that works, and the Coke machine and Mopar clock in the office light up. Did you notice the Dodge sign? Yep, it lights up as well, and the Mopar service garage has blue flashing lights all around it, this thing looks cool at night!
The glass model-display cabinet underneath it, as well as the full Plexiglas cover was all built by him while he was in high school shop class. Barry says, “This display has been in a couple of local model-car shows, and it placed 1st in Diorama in both shows. It even received a Best of Show once. There really isn't anything local anymore, it would be nice to see model car builders appreciated more often, as the hard work and dedication is the same as the full size cars.
