Your decorations look good, Bob. I'd never heard of the briar patch stuff before. I see some applications in HO.

I like the appearance of that "briar patch" as well.

Unfortunately, it appears Scenic Express is phasing it out....

Bill, Greg, George, and Carl. thanks for your posts.

I still have not finished off the decorations but I wanted you to see how the briar patch
makes shrubs, just tear off a hunk and glue it into place.





I know, my bushes are not as big as the original ones but I just didn't want to cover up all those bricks I placed.

I know these photos are fuzzy, I will try to get better ones later. In the meantime I wanted to
let you see what lighting I have installed. All are LEDs.

This is with just the interior lights on.



This is with the porch lights on.



I may want to tone down those porch lights.

Jerry, Greg, Mike, and Pete, thanks for your comments, they are all much appreciated.

I have a few more details I need for this model. The actual cottage has a porch swing
decorated for Christmas, hanging in the round area. I searched the web and found some basic
dimensions for such a swing. Having used styrene strips for countless models over the
years I have a couple of boxes full of scraps. I raided one of those boxes and found
leftover strips to throw together this swing. The hanging hardware will attach at those brass eye bolts.

Nice looking swing, Bob. It's nice to have a large junk box.

Bob,

Excellent work for something that you “threw together.”

Bob,

I hadn't realized I haven't posted since 12/16/2020 to your thread, I am truly sorry.
I missed a lot of great building going up. I might have to re-think the use of styrene as a building component, for you do such nice work with it. Your projects are always a joy to watch.
