Pete, you're going to have to enlighten me on Mrs. Martinelli's cat?

Thanks, Frank!

Ted, I'm in the process of changing some of the window treatments, for the better, I hope. A tie with Bob would be a win for me.

Thank you, Mike !

The cat was an idea to generate some interest... something to "find." Mrs. Martinelli could just as easily be whomever lives there....

I've found that giving names, especially "believable" ones to people, places off the layout, etc. helps things come to life. Yes, people will perhaps look at you like you're half a quart low, but this is a hobby-- it's supposed to be fun!

And your build is fabulous, cat or not....

Fantastic!

This may help with the roof. Was authored by Dave Mason. Crown molding.

Pete,

Im not sure Ive heard the expression half a quart low very often and I like it. I know my recently deceased lawn mower would make a lot of noise when low on oila frequent condition but not what ultimately did it in. Next time Im in a meeting and somebody goes on and on Ill quietly think to myself Ill bet hes half a quart low.

Meanwhile a lot of expressions can be used to describe modelers but we keep chugging down the track and around the bend.

Mike

Thanks, Pete. I was looking for some reference to a movie, or something. A cat is a possibility.

Thanks, Philip. Crown molding might be the ticket.


I thought being a half a quart low was a prerequisite in this hobby.

I checked, and I am.... Half a quart, or maybe more.... [:-banghead]

Were I to reference a movie/TV show on this one, though, it would probably have to be "Morticia's" cat.

Given the coolness of the build, I'll stick with "Mrs. Martinelli."

The curtains and shades really make it "pop".

Thanks, Ray and Greg !! I will add some lighting. Just enough to look like it's occupied.


After a conversation with a well respected forum member and a well respected modeler, who is not a member, I decided to change out the bright Citrus green shades. They popped a little too much and were a bit of a distraction. Or at least I changed most of them.






Now the left and right walls are attached.The right is just a mirror image of the left.





Instead of moving down to the foundation as I had planned, I decided to add the flat part of the roof, the part that creates the eaves, so I can finish out those corbels. One at a time.

You may be confused...you meant half empty pockets.

Great looking model!

Jim
