Hi Bob,
I like the character of the building. IMO, the holiday decorations seem to distract the eye away from the beauty of the structure.
Whichever choice you decide to build I know the build will turn out great!

Bob,

Iím always in admiration of the neatness of your modeling.

Regarding the Christmas decorations, I think you could have it both ways. I think at your scale you could have little hooks on the door and frame onto which you hang decorations built with wire armatures. Or build decorations on thin styrene that can be attached with double-sided tape.

If the decorations are NOT removable on the model,
then you are committed to it being a "holiday" piece.

IMO- save yourself the trouble- I vote no.

Thanks for your votes guys, I'm still tabulating your response.

Here are the wall sections that will form the back wall of that full width porch area.



My next step will be to add the window "glass" and I notice that all windows in the original
photo show curtains, which I will also add.

The mailbox is made from styrene with flat brass newspaper loops and the lantern was
made from a piece of square cross-section clear plastic tubing with the top and bottom
made from styrene scraps.

Thanks Dave.

Well, it looks like the votes are in and it breaks down this way. Yes votes (including
mine) = 2. No votes = 3, and go either way votes = 2. So the NO votes are tops but I am still
leaning towards the YES because I see it as a challenge.

Carl, it would not be a problem to leave it as a holiday piece, Christmas is my favorite
time of year and I already have a few Christmas themed models on hand. Besides, by
the way I am progressing on this model it might be Christmas before I finish it!

I think I will try the Christmas decorations and if I mess it all up those three of you
who voted NO can say "I told ya so!!".

Bob

Bob, I think you are one of the most talented modelers that I have ever had the pleasure to know & watch!
I'm convinced that there is nothing that you couldn't build a model of, if you desired to do so.
I did like Mike's idea about making the decoration removable if that is possible.

My computer died!!!!!

This is being sent from a back-up computer. Mine died and along with it so many photos and posts.
I suspect it will be a while before I get everything back up and running.

Thanks Mike,
I think I have most of those backed up except maybe some I was working on recently. I have to get into that yet.

The problem is that all the trying to get back up to snuff takes a lot of time away from model building.

Jumping back and forth between computer repair and model building, here's where I was when my
problem happened.



Here are the walls glued in place except for the section with the door, that's loosely standing
in place. I will decorate that before installation.
