Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Art Deco Firehouse - By Jussi Kivi

About the only thing that excites us more than really great 1/87 scale models is really great photos of those models! About Jussi Kivi's firehouse (in his words): "My idea was to build an American firehouse from 1920/1930s (in 1970s shape). It's not a model of any existing fire station. The Art Deco style architecture is completely my own design. ( .. and I am quite proud of it, I am not an architect). The artistic designing was easy and fun, but I had several problems with construction planning... and building too. Actually it was the most difficult model I have ever built and I think I also learned something." Certainly the results are outstanding!
