Looking great adding the Courthouse mod did the trick from the looks of it.

I think I'll like it better.



I'm pretty sure we'll all agree this is a money shot. [:-thumbu]

Thanks, Frank, Dave, Jerry and Rich.

Since we were on the tenement mod. when Rich asked.

Here's #3 and 5.



As you can see in this shot, sooner or later I'm going to need a corner module. Mods. #1, 4 and 2 total up to about 10.5 feet. #1 and 3, about 7.5 feet.



Street level shot.

Thanks, Ted and Mike !!

After weeks of mental debate I have decided to begin work on a rendition of this building.



It is from the Mayberry set. It was also used in Star Trek, the Untouchables, Batman and several other movies and shows. Early on in the Andy Griffith show it was Walker's Drug store. The later a cafť. I'm not going to use it as either, since I already have a drug store and plenty of eating places. I think it will be the bank. There was a Mayberry Security Bank on the show but I couldn't find any "good" shots of it. And what I did see wasn't as interesting as this building. My plan is, as of now, to relocate the Package store on module #2 and replace it with this. I'm still not happy with the transition between the package store and the other modules. But I won't be getting a quick start on this project, as I have to order some supplies before I can really even get started. And right now I'm having difficulties trying to place that order.

Hopefully that will straighten out soon.

Yeah, Mike, that is pretty much my philosophy.

Carl, I'm trying to order through Walthers. com. I've used them for years. Now I have stuff in my "cart" but I can't view the cart or check-out. I'm in touch with Walthers web-master who is trying to figure out what's going on. We'll see.
