Bob. It's been a very informative journey during your build. I for one, picked up a few ideas , which lead me to start serious casting again, which lead to another journey. The "Ripple" effect of this hobby can been seen thru out the RRL forums. Thankyou again for sharing your ideas and skills.

Till next time

Bob, I had the exact same problem Friday night. My files were names[ Meat 1 throgh 5.
The forum just wouldn't take them...So I re-named them M1 thru 5, Still no good. So I simply went ABC etc. Then they all went through with no problem. Also I had to keep making them smaller then the 800 X 600 Pixels...As they get smaller, you loose details. Your shots look great though....I'm happy to see that I wasn't going crazy alone'...

Mario, Ted, and Carl, I apreciate your comments.

Ted, I tried to post to the Meat Market but the forum would not accept it. I'll keep trying

Just an incredible build of a very unique structure Bob. Extremely well done! I love the interiors. Someday I'd love to experiment with that level of detail myself. In the meantime, I appreciate your documenting your work along the way. I'm learning a lot.

Some quick and dirty night shots. I still need to tone down the lights in the main sign. Maybe tomorrow.

Mark, thanks for your wonderful comment.

Bob

I can smell the bus exhaust hanging in the night air from here. Nice shots, Bob

...And the trash from the winos around the corner down the alley....

Fabulous work, Bob, and nice "mood" shots!

Bill,
I've been watching your work for a long time and with each model I shake my head in amazement. Working with styrene and casting your shapes is a powerful tool. I wish I could create like you do. You are a superb modeler!! Thank you for sharing your methods with all of us.

Bill, Greg, Pete, and David, I thank you for your comments.

I'm delayed with some other work right now and waiting for some smaller LEDs to use in that sign.
More night photos soon.

Bob

Bob, simply amazing. I have often wanted to do a more modern diorama, in the '50s, mainly because I have a Pirate Models greyhound bus and some '50s cars to go with it. The Greyhound building you have done might be just the thing to get me off the couch and make one. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Tony, Go for it, judging by your other work I'm sure you would do a fantastic job of it.

The REAL WORLD has taken up most of my time lately but I have been toning down the lights
in that GREYHOUND sign.

Bob
