Sorry, I've gotten way behind on my "thank yous" so please except a huge group thank you !!


Bob, I'll probably wait on the lights until I figure out what the other store is going to be and get the fronts glued to the main building.


Dave, the gumball is just styrene, mostly sheet stuff. The main part of the base was .060 styrene laminated to add bulk. Then small bits and pieces for the silver parts. The "glass" was from some packaging, blister pack, that I folded and formed a rectangular globe. I found online an image of a bunch of gumballs that I shrunk down and formed into a strip and wrapped it around the inside of the globe. Then slapped the top on, made from styrene.


Sorry, Rich, one store is enough for me.


Thanks again, Everyone.

Thanks, Bob.

I tried to dirty things up a bit, I'm not sure it's enough. And I've also added the roof to the fronts. The roof to the main building is also done except for adding it's covering, so I won't bore you with that.



And, as you can see, I've decided what the other store will be. So I've started work on a TV.




I'll need a few more along with some radios. Fun, fun, fun.

I've never seen anyone come up with a jukebox... How about one of those?
