  • Bob, it looks just like the real thing!

    looking forward to seeing what you come up with for lighting.

    • 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.

                  • Nicely done, Bob... you've turned a house into a home.

                    Bravo!

                    • 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.
