Carl B Posted - 11/15/2018 : 09:41:40 AM
Thanks Jerry...

I can assure you it's already out and lit...my wife starts Christmas right after Halloween!

Well Carl its almost that time of year to light it for the holidays!!

Hard to believe almost a year has past since you finished this beauty!!
Carl B Posted - 12/20/2017 : 7:15:24 PM
Thanks for that story Mike, wish I could have been there!

Would have been great to have breakfast with you all....
Michael Hohn Posted - 12/20/2017 : 08:40:18 AM

I showed your photos around the cafe table this mornings without revealing it was a model. Everybody was completely taken in, amazed when I revealed the truth.

General agreement: wonderful work.

Carl B Posted - 12/17/2017 : 09:38:07 AM
Chuck- Thank you, flattered that my model reminds you of Europe.

Greg- Yep, snow is needed, and thanks to Bill Gill I have some!

Jerry- well ..Frank is Frank. Super guy.

Bob- Appreciate the compliments Bob..

The "Bill Gill" virtual snow looks cool...but if I ever did something like this again

I would certainly have some IN the model..

EXCELLENT !! Fantastic modeling and photography.
The only thing missing is a light coat of sparking "snow".

TRAINS1941 Posted - 12/16/2017 : 11:10:30 PM
God Frank has a soft spot in his heart for Christmas!!

Bill- Wow that is awesome!

Carl, I agree!
Bill, I was hoping it would snow.
Christmas just isn't the same without some snow.
Though to heck with it, for the rest of the winter!

Loved the extra photos, Carl.

I am just getting caught up. Wow. My favorite shot that reminds me of my trips to Europe is the one looking up the narrow cobble stoned street. Perfect.

Thank you again Dave G. Ted, and Kevin.

Bill- Wow that is awesome!...thanks for the time and effort you put in- ....I'm stealing that image for future use...

Frank- Glad I'm able to bring a wee bit of cheer to the season for you...

Incidentally, now that I've moved back to Florida...it's helping to keep my spirit up too!
It ain't easy when you can take a swim on Christmas Day around here!

Why thank you Ed.!

Frank, Let it go. Can't ignore greatness.
One beautiful effort.
Frank Palmer Posted - 12/16/2017 : 6:59:42 PM
Man between Carl and Bill I'm starting to lose some of that ole' Mr. Scrooge. Dang I'm getting the chills just thinking about it.
kebmo Posted - 12/16/2017 : 4:53:13 PM
looks very much like a christmas card!
Bill Gill Posted - 12/16/2017 : 4:50:15 PM
Carl, When I peeked in on your scene this evening...
It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas !!!
Merry Christmas to you and your family :)
