Bob, nice little window display for Betcher's.
Looks like Captain Betcher has landed his new little sternwheeler on a rock or something.
Betcha Betcher never saw that coming.

Bob, Betcher steamboat model gets a lot of attention :) Would it be smaller than 1:250 !?

Thanks Ray.

Bill, I have no idea of scale. I simply wanted something to "look" like a steamboat model so I
quickly made this on from Sculpy. To get the long rows of windows I download a photo of a real
steamboat from the web, sized it, cut out the sides and glued them to the model.

Betcher's is another good looking storefront!
Is that your reflection in the window?

Dave,
It must be unless there is a ghost around or someone else is working here. I have been known to
leave my impression in windows and mirrors on models but I don't usually notice it until someone
mentions it.

Bob

OK, no puns about "Chains of Love" playing in the background of Rapinett's Jewelry Store. Another terrific model. it'll be neat to see what order you decide to place them when all are completed.

Bob, those gold chains look so real!
You are turning into quite the window dresser.

Bob,
Well, You model too fast for a photographer to keep up with you and I sure hopes it's not a ghost!!!
Nice job on Rapinett Jewelry. Looking forward to the final photos of the new block of stores.

Bill, Ray, Ted, Greg, and Dave, thanks, I enjoy all your posts, puns or not.

I'm now working up on the structures. I have shades in all windows and so far curtains in one of them.
A bit more work and then I must join them and make up a sidewalk base.

Bob

Ray, go easy on that cheese.

Bill, I do not have a choice any longer since I applied numbers.

Here's some shots of the fronts as they are now. Can't wait until I get a chance to take photos outside.
