Bob, it is interesting that in the real world we see cockeyed awnings, crooked trees, tilted fence posts and leaning utility poles and accept them. Yet those same things on a model strike us as 'wrong'.

At any rate, every new post shows those storefronts off better and better.

I kind of like the one awning being a little off-kilter.

Thanks guys, I appreciate all your comments.

I fixed the awning on Magoun's and made it straight. This morning I looked and it is crooked
again, not as bad, but crooked. I think it's telling me something, I'm going to let it go.

Thanks for the suggestions on the window paint color, most seem to think it was black. However,
in my memory the one's near home were white. If I don't stick with that I will always think it
looks wrong. I'm going with white and if it looks bad I'll change it, no problem.

I downloaded some beer signs from the web and printed them on clear decal paper. I'm hoping
they will look good with a light behind them, we shall see.

Bob

I'm having camera trouble and right now I am using a camera that I am not used to. Sorry for
the poor shot. Although I cannot get a good photo of them, the upper door sign and the sign
in the middle of the window look great as lit up neon signs with a light behind them.

Just a reminder, while I try to figure out how to photograph it, GUFFEY's is open for business!

Bob, when you set your mind on a window color, that's it. I think the white looks just great, and not as seedy of an establishment as the black window would represent'..
Guffy's, is in a with a group of respectable businesses. So I agree with you on the white.
I'll be in tonight, and buy a round for the house. Who is behind the stick?

Thanks Ted, If Guffey himself "ain't" in I assume it will be Archie the manager.

Time to move on to Magoun's Cheese House. I have the window inserts done and here's some cheese
that I made from Sculpy.

Lookin' good, Bob. Guffey's might want some of that cheese to go with the wine they serve.

Bob - Dave & Greg already used the two puns I was going to inflict on you. That said, perhaps you can explain that the previous blurred photo of Guffey's reflects the view of a few of the customers on the way home. Not a pun, so guess I'll have to do cheddar next time.

Bill, it seems to me lately, that you are the one beating me to all of the available cheesy puns.
So it's kinda nice to beat you for a change.
Poor Bob, I'm not certain how much more he can stand, with 3 of us punsters now "wheying" in.

Bob,

Ignore the cheesy puns and get on with the serious business here! We need some good Stilton, or Wensleydale in that mix! Perhaps even some Venezuelan Beaver Cheese!

Don't forget a nice selection of crackers to serve with the cheeses. Remember the duck's favorite food: Cheese and Quackers!

Where's John Cleese when I need him??

Pete,

Funny you mention Wensleydale. Wallace would be proud....or John Cleese, even!

And, I could have Stilton, anytime! Now I am hungry.

Chuck,

Wallace would indeed be proud! Those are his two faves-- Stilton and Wensleydale! Good cheeses, too....

As for John, well....
