Bob,

Impressive! It takes a lot of imagination to come up with different designs like you have done. And they are all very credible.

Mike

Ray and Mike, thanks for your comments. I had a few snippets of time to work on these. Although
none are finished I thought I'd post this photo as an update. Kind of hard to photograph all white
but soon a bit of paint will be added.



Cheers,
Bob

Bob, your storefronts look great, even in plain old white.

Looks great Bob!

Any chance you could increase the size of your photos in the future ?

Greg, Pete, Ray, Dave, Carl, and Bill, thanks to all of you for your comments.

Carl, actually my photos are larger, I have to make them smaller to be accepted by this forum.
What is it that you would like to see better, maybe I can photograph a specific area.

Cheers,

Bob

Bob, The recommended size is 800 by 600 pixels.
That size would be just right to see your details with
out you having to take close ups'...

Thanks Ted, I was about to suggest that to you Bob....

Bob- Whatever resize software you use, should be able to make that size and squash the data too....

The large scale you work in begs to be seen that big! It's fantastic!

I was "cajoled" into making pix bigger for my own threads!
I now use 800 x 600 exclusively.

Bob,
I also use a max.long side of 800 but if the photo file goes over 200kb I'll scale back the length to 750. (one time I tried to load over 200kb and it wouldn't work on RR-L) The smaller rules were put in place to reduce downloading with dial up connections. Not sure if many folks use dial up today.

Thanks,

Bob

Hi Bob. I have been looking at your progress daily. I was wondering if you could take an overall photo of each store front before you proceed too much further. You have taken on a project that may motivate a few modelers to do similar, in a scale of their choice. Cheers mate. "M"

PS... Do you make castings of projects like these , for sale..

Sorry guys, 800 x 600 will not work for me. I use paint and when you change one the other changes
automatically. I can do it by unchecking "retain aspect ratio" but that ruins the photo.

Mario, will try to find time to photograph each storefront separately this afternoon. I no longer
do any castings for sale.

Cheers,

Bob
