an update:
i finished the stone foundation walls and glued them to the structure. then i redid a part of the framing and 48 planks on the front walkway, and finally, the ridge cap.
this pic only shows the foundation wall in the rear (still needs a shot or two of i/a) and the bar mills hinkle's package store. norton's is sitting on top of a frame i made out of 1/2"x1/2" stock to fill its space when i start covering the base with sculptamold i think the road hinkles is on is gonna be an incline.

Kevin well done. Great to see this structure finished, and to such a high level of quality. Really impressed.
Looking forward to the diorama.
