I'm not modeling Mayberry....unless it's convenient.

It seems to me the drains and spouts would be at the back of the buildings, which can't be seen. So, I don't know.

I took last week off from working on "Mayberry" to do a small project I've been thinking about for a while and felt compelled to do.

This isn't where it's going but it will be part of the town.







And the prototype.



Better known as Silent Sam.

Thanks, Carl.

It started with these 5 civil war figures I got from Hobby Lobby, made by Woodland Scenics.



Then there was a lot of slicing and dicing, cutting and trimming, moving and shaking, wishing and hoping, cursing and swearing.... It took 4 of the 5 figures to get the one. And I still had to scratch the rifle to get it to look right. Along with the ammunition bag and bed roll.

The base was made from floor tiles, two different thicknesses. The plagues from actual images of the real thing (though you can't tell once they are shrunk to size) and I added styrene frames around them to add dimension.

Thanks, Ted, Bob and Bill!!

And now back to the module. I added some lights, which in real life are almost too dim. I don't really want "bright" lights but I'm not too sure about these, though they photograph better.





And, of course, the camera doesn't want to see through the "glass".



I also added a short section of fence at the end of the alley, for a view block, and a place to catch trash.








I'm not sure if I'm going any further with this project, at least for the time being.

Very nice work Fred.

I like the much dimmer lighting, it's very natural.
I need to work on that problem myself for future projects .

And forgot to thank you for the "rearranged anatomy" needed to make your statue, appreciate the info... well done.

Nice monument. Just last week Tampa, FL had to move theirs out of the public eye. Better luck with yours.

Thanks, Jerry, Ted, Carl, Dave and Frank.

I agree the lights do look good here. In real life during the day you really have to look to even see if they are on.

One day the new generation will see that they are the problem with the new generation, not something that happened 150 years ago.
