Thanks for your comments Bill and Pete.

Pete, it is an honor to try to honor some of the great guys on this site. Model Railroaders are
generally good guys, all willing to help.

Bill, no way, I'm not near done yet. After I get the sidewalk and curb done I will add the drain
and manhole cover. I may think of some other stuff to set along the walk and then there is
the whole matter of some lighting. No thoughts as yet as to what will be next.

Bob

Bob, they look FANTASTIC all lined up on the sidewalk together.
You should really publish a book about all of your styrene creations & techniques.
I know you've shown a lot of your stuff here, but I'm certain you have lots of tricks & other models that you haven't shown us.
I even have a title for it, "The Amazing Santos Styrene Extravaganza". Mark me down for the first autographed copy of it!

Thanks Greg, but it would be way too much work. You see I did something on purpose that
prevents me from doing so. I used to write a lot for magazines, a few in model railroad magazine
but mostly in ship model mags, military figure and diorama mags, model airplane mags. It does
tend to really take up your enjoyable model building time so when I started posting to this
forum I purposely took all low resolution photos for publishing here on the forum but no high
resolution photos. None of my photos are of high enough quality to publish in print media, I
would have to start all over and I could never show any in-progress shots. I did this on
purpose to prevent me from doing exactly what you have suggested. It makes my model building
FUN again instead of working to deadlines.

Bob, that looks great. I have some of your articles in my library and all I can say is we are in the midst of modelling greatness.

Bob, I totally understand your thinking, and I would never want to spoil the fun you are now enjoying.
I just want you to know how much we all admire your work & creativity that you share.
So these 3 wonderful volumes of "Structure on the LP&N RR" will just have to suffice.
Thank you again for all of your time spent, in creating them, for all of us to enjoy!

Bob, Glad you're having fun modeling, It's lots of fun watching you have fun. And it "good" to hear you haven't already started your next project because that means you must be almost human :)

The block looks great, Bob! And I totally get what you're saying about writing eating up too much modeling time. I've experienced that myself this past year.

Aran and Mario, many thanks for your comments.

I'm not done with this project yet but I wanted to try to get a few photos as it stand now. Sorry,
these are quick shots taken in the shop while I'm playing with the lights.

Bob, the lighting in the windows of all 4 shops looks great!
Charlie on the other hand, is thinking the cheese in Magoun's windows looks delicious!
The last photo is my favorite.
