These result in photos larger than the models

Nice, very nice. I may have missed where these will go since they are only an inch deep. Will they mount directly against a backdrop of some kind or will you add a deeper exterior wall to each far end and a common rear wall so that in effect they are one structure? Or something else altogether?

Great stuff Bob. Those pix are bigger, but they show off your skill set nicely.

Bob, a beautiful looking quartet!
I think a little mouse hole should be chewed into Magoun Cheese on the bottom at ground level under one of the windows.

I see I was in a big hurry and should have dusted them before taking photos. Oh well, there will be more photos.

Pete, that big white something on the door glass just blew away. Same goes for other dust particles.

Bill, They will be only 1 inch deep, the whole idea was to try to compensate for my running out
of room on the layout. Right now I plan to make some sort of sidewalk/removable base for them so
that they will store away in little space but be available as a photo backdrop.

Dust? I thought that was Shinnie marking the place for some sort of terrorist coup. Hobo symbols and all that!

I thought it looked like someone(no names mentioned) gave that door window a shot of silly string.

Both of those sound real good but in fact it was a styrene squiggle resulting from drilling a hole in
white styrene. Those things get everywhere.

Naw, I like the Hobo marking better.

Bob,
It's an honor to have my name used in one of your builds. All four are beautiful structures but selfishly, I think Guffey Tavern is AWESOME!
Thank you my friend,
David

Dave, The honor is mine.

Here's a couple of quickies to show that the stores have been joined into one block. They are not mounted permanently to the base. The base has four wooden dowels glued into it that match four holes in the bottom of the store group to keep it firmly in place but allow it to be broken down for storage. The concrete sidewalk is made up of sheet styrene.

Bob

Hmmm, Your last post sounds sorta like this project is done. It turned out very nice, but none of us better not blink because by the time we look again you'll have started something new and probably have it have done :)
