      Beautiful work, James and Kanthima.

      These structures are coming out great.

      Cheers, Mark.

              Thanks, all 12 of you. Jim, IIRC the 1953 Caddy came from Model Power. Tonight's meeting finally ended; here's a prototype picture from 2011. It was white 10 years earlier, and probably had been since it was built.



              This is a very fancy entrance and the interior pictures you can find on Redfin for 182 High show a very fancy interior. She asked about modeling the portico's carvings and frankly I couldn't tell her how to in HO scale.

                James, contact John Nehrich about small carvings and castings in HO. Here's a shot of the corner of the roof on the Troy Depot for the NEB&W. You can see several tiny decorative carvings there. That was long before I was a member, I have no idea how they were done, but he can give Kanthima a description of how they were made.

                  The original is quite beautiful in itself. The yellow and white with dark shutters is a go-to color scheme for houses of this period.

                  The Corinthian capitals would be hard in any scale.

                    Doing capitals in the Greek orders would probably be a good 3D design/printing project. Even Ionian are hard to get the spiral (I cheated and just did mine as circles...)

                        James,

                        182 High St. is a beautiful model! You two can be proud. Kanthima is doing an outstanding job!

                          Here are Kanthima's High St. structures, painted and on basic foundations.

                          Houses on east side of High St.

                          This is the east (river, depot) side of High St., with from L #184 (BEST Colonial Georgian), #182, #180 by my wife.

                          West side of High St. from corner of Winter St.

                          This is the west side, #171/173 (Lynch's Pharmacy), #181, #183, all by my wife.

                              Great looking buildings. Wife has a great talent for house design and build. I bet many modelers would love a wife like that.
