Okay.....I'll start the ball rolling here with a variation on the "Peanut Butter Lid" concept:
An HO-scale Coffee Can diorama.  Cutting out the side of a coffee can allowed for some
scenery that can't be worked into a flat PBL.



Just your average 60's afternoon with a car full of Juvenile Delinquents, pizza & beer....



Here's how it started:



The Merc is a chopped Woodland Scenics '49:

I always loved this one Ken, lots of imagination in such a small space.

Your work is always amazing, Ken, and the level of detailing quite impressive, especially considering this is HO.

What a cool idea- and well executed (including the puke I guess!). Makes me think the box lid of an unfinished structure kit might make a good "space" to create a diorama. Anyway that is a neat idea and a good example for folks like me who claim to have no time for even a nominally sized diorama. Thanks.
