Yes the green benches are from Carrera's site. I wanted to use the Frostie machine you have but since I work for Coca-Cola I had to use the Coke machine.
The thing I did with my machines and benches instead of being cardboard I used balsa wood and cut it to size, printed out the image on decal paper and stuck them on. To make sure the decals stayed in place without peeling I then used clear packing tape and covered all the decal areas.
Lee, I used the balsa approach on some HO scenic items for my last permanent track (tool boxes, shipping crates, even timing computers!
). I primed, painted, and clear-coated the balsa (this gave a super smooth surface), then applied decals and clear-coated again (gloss or matte depending on object). Balsa is so easy to work with and you get a nice solid object when finished.
astro, Great job on the tool box, but the scene looks kind of kinky. Why is the driver standing in the corner with his helmet on and looking at the Hot blonde in the short skirt. It looks like his hand is cupped and reaching for something in front of him!
