Chuck and Ray,

The model is 24" x 6" x 19" high (without the base)

Well, that's a whole lot of shingles but it's done. I still have to make a chimney and do
a little groundwork. I also have some figures in mind.

Excellent, Bob !!

Just one chimney? Sure you don't want to go for two, or even three?

No sidewalk?

Terrell, No room for more than one chimney, the others are on parts of the building I did not model

No sidewalk either. If I ever need to model the sidewalk it will be just beyond the small base
I have now. I think this will be all dirt with some weeds and leaves along the foundation. I
will also be ordering some figures in winter clothing to add as I get them painted.

Might even add some lights as you have done although I had not planned to do that. Most
all my other structures have lights but they mostly all have full interiors too, this one does not.

SUPRUB is correct Bob'. looks beautiful! I really like the dark shingles. Gives a nice contrast to the building. I can just imagine the figures you will put in place. I bet there will be at least one red head'...


I sent you an email Bob...when you get a chance...

Top notch modelling Bob. As long as you didn't actually get "the shingles" while shingling the structure then all is well!

Thanks Carl, Terrell, Ted, Mike, Galen, and Pete, thanks again for your comments.

I hope I won't bore you with some photos but our forecast is for rain for several days and I
wanted to get some photos outside. Be aware that I still have some things to finish.

1. wait for the glue holding the dirt to dry
2. add some weeds and dead leaves long the base
3. waiting for some figures to come in and to paint them.

These is outside but not in direct sun.






These is in sunlight








This is looking up a bit from a model person's eye level




and this is just a bit closer



Bob
