And if you look closely at the pillows, they have a little label like the ones I had in the Navy decades ago: "Product of the xxxxxx Federal Prison System. Contents guaranteed unknown." [:-boggled]

You knew the labels had to be there and couldn't never be removed under penalty of law :)
Good stuff, Fred.

Thanks, Bill.

I gave Andy and Barney somewhere to sit.



And since no one told me how big, bulky and ugly the flagpole was, I re-did it.



Then I moved outside and added the base.



And a couple of benches....



.and non-working lights.



As of now the interior is glued to the base. The front wall is removeable as is the whole building. I may leave it that way.

Another FINE looking structure. I'm anxious to see the whole town laid out. How many structures
are you going to build? I'll follow along on every one.

WELL DONE [:-thumbu][:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

Nice work Fred!

What's the base made of?

Bob, the courthouse makes a total of 24 town buildings already built. I don't know that there will be any more. But I've been saying that for years.

Thanks, Pete!!

Carl, the base is just two sheets of .040 styrene laminated together.

Fred,
Well, if that's the case, how about a photo of all of them together (wish, wish, wish).

Ok, Bob, but it ain't pretty. I have better pictures of the modules but this as they are right now, lining the wall in the train room. There's currently three modules, 48"x19".

This is modules 1 & 2.



Module 3 begins the transition from city to suburban.



The tenement and Nora's are stand-alones for now. I also have several industrial type buildings that will work into suburbia. And numerous buildings for the more country type settings.

I'm planning on putting the courthouse and the grocery together, as they should be, and making module #4. Then I have to figure out where it fits into the city.

Bob, I guess I meant not very "photogenic". At least not the way I like to show things.

Thanks, Bill !!

Wow what a collection! A lot of great work displayed there..

Fred, how will you incorporate all these modules together with what is already existing?

Quite impressive. Is this going to be a train layout or static display?
