Thanks Greg. It actually looks much better to the naked eye. I still have not mastered taking a
photo of lights that they don't look brighter and harsher than they do when looking at the model.

I'm thinking about lighting just a few of the upper windows and maybe some streetlights.

Charlie has been looking at those cheeses in the window a long long time. I think I hear him humming "Night and day, you are the one"
Looks great, Bob, day and night.

How nice to see so many comments. Thanks Pete, Ted, Ray, Dave, Bill, Jeff, and Frank.

I thought a city block like this should have some streetlights. I made the bulk from various
diameters of styrene tubes because I like to work with styrene.

The brackets are made from brass wire because I could not think of anything better to use.

The shades are made from circles cut from aluminum sheet because it's easy to work with
but would also make a good reflector for the bulb (LED).

Charlie and cousin Larry are trying to decide what cheese they will buy.

Nice...I really like the streetlights and the sidewalks with the runoff drains and cleanout cover! The jewelry in Rapinett's shows well but sure looks like a lot of work.
