Dave, your newest Leeks plumbing, looks like it's off to a good start.
I hope you don't have to bend over too much while building it.

A good looking wood wall, David. A nice contrast to the brick building.

Good morning Bob and George,
I sure appreciate you guys dropping by. This is my first venture in using wood instead of paper for siding on foamboard. I like the way it looks but it requires more work to trim for installation and of course, a much higher cost than painted paper.

Looks like it will fit right in the neighborhood. Good start, once again.

Thanks Jim! Maybe you may want to consider moving your hardware store out of the run down neighborhood.

Added plaster walls, wood beams and stairs to represent the remains of a wall section from a torn down building.

Nice work Dave, and an unusual, but very plausible scenario with that wall section.
I've only seen it modelled like that a couple of time before, so should look good.
Nice colouring on the clapboards.

The local ragamuffins are going to love that graffiti free wall, for their 'canvas'. Great idea!

Your model of the remains of an adjacent building looks very realistic.

Thanks Rob, Jim and Mike. I appreciate your comments.
Jim, I'm thinking about adding some graffiti to the wall but unsure what to paint on that represents the 1920-1930 era. Any ideas?

Dave, your ghost wall of a building now gone, looks excellent!
I love the lone stringer.

Neat idea Dave. Here's some slang from the 20's-30's I found on the web....just do a search "popular phrases of the 19XX"...

“Don’t take any wooden nickels!”
"It's the bee's knees."
"Tell it to Sweeney"
"What's your story, morning glory?"
"Slip me five"
"Cute as a bug's ear"

Dave, you could always put up a Post No Bills sign.........and then surround it with posters.
