Bob, your styrene chimney looks perfect on the roof!
I went back and looked at the real photo, I think that panel in the chimney, might be made out of carved stone.

Now that my friend is a masterpiece,
just another one on your list of many.

Dave, Carl, Mike, and Greg, thanks for your comments.

Greg, you may be right, it may be stone, I never thought of that. However, I am looking at 4
different photos and I still get the feeling it's metal.

On to the build. Remember I was fooled by the perspective of the first photo and made my
urns too large. I have a good photo of the structure without the Christmas decorations
and I can see the relative size of them. I also see that they are not all the same. I
turned four more from resin and tried to make them a mismatch all around. They won't show
up much under the decorations anyway.

Here they are discussing what to do next.

Fred, Ray, and Scott, thanks for your comments.





Not quite finished with the decorations yet but I did add the ribbon, the roses and various Christmas balls.

Ray - All the greenery plus some shrubs which I haven't posted photos of yet are made from
little pieces cut from one "AF6024 medium green briar patch" from Scenic Express. I love the stuff.
