Kevin, that is a stunning model, and beautifully presented. Really high quality work. And a fiiting tribute to friends, who obviously mean a lot to you.
I sure she will treasure it always.

Well done mate.

a few months ago i received the o scale resource magazine (an ezine) and on the cover was a
"what's on your bench" feature so i clicked the link and sent him the final pics of the bed and breakfast. he emailed me back almost immediately and asked if i'd want to write up a little something on the build.
it was published last week.
if your interested it's the article "scratch building with styrene".
i'm almost famous.....

a little update:
i talked with sheri a couple of days ago. the bed and breakfast is booked solid through the summer, and a local ski hill has approached her to partner up with them for the winter. she's listed on two hotel sites and gets business from them regularly. she's sponsoring a girls softball team, getting involved in the local rotary and business is BOOMING!
she called me to tell me that her guests are blown away by the model. it sits in the dining room and they can't help but see it while eating her gourmet breakfast, and they all love it. i couldn't be more pleased.
