Happy belated birthday, Bob! You had me worried for a minute when I read that you were not modelling anymore! I had to catch my breath!
That is some outstanding modelling!

Jeff

Thanks guys. Too many to mention but thanks for the nice comments and also for the nice birthday
wishes. I have a few more little items I want to add to the model and then I guess it will be as
"done" as it will be before being added to the layout where it can be surrounded by more stuff.
I don't think the weather will be cooperating for the next few days, dull and cloudy, rain, cold, and
Very windy. I'll post more photos when I can.

Cheers,

Bob

OK Ted, I added a mustache to the guy sweeping the floor (and it wasn't easy). So, now that we
know that that is Ted, how about naming the other guy.

Happy Belated Birthday, Bob, and thanks for not ending your beautiful modeling career, as you always build outstanding models.
Regarding Ted's comment, if the figure looks out of whack, you can add some stitches to the forehead like mine!

Rich, Wow, I hope your forehead is getting better. I am toying with making a baseball cap but the
figure might be holding it rather than wearing it.

Best wishes to Richard, and please make sure that the cap is a Red Sox cap!

Maybe it should be an Altoona Curve cap: http://www.milb.com/index.jsp?sid=t452

Pete and Mike, I think a 1941 Red Sox cap would be appropriate, I was rooting for the young Ted Williams back then.

Here's the final photos for this project.

Sure looks great Bob'. There will be a huge grand opening sale, once we get all our inventory in stock. Free hot dogs and soda, balloons for the kids. And a special bonus for our terrific builder'... [

Bob, another terrific model. I see the mustache, nice work. Also with the low angle lighting, noticed for the first time the loose clapboards on the sidewall. Another nice touch.
Simple building, lots to see.
