Great looking center of town structure. Any info on what was the base of the structure used for?
You did a fine job of cutting out those clock centers.

Carl, what a delightful looking town clock.
I vote for lighting the lower part, but than again I vote for lighting most things.
This looks like the perfect place to have a Christmas time choir singing at.
Glad to see that you remembered to turn the time back an hour last night.

Carl, the clocks came out good. Looks like now you're having four times as much fun with this project.

Jim, Michael, Jerry, Bob thank you for your comments.

Frank- Yep, not much to it. We must be careful using that word though.

Louis- Thanks. No information was provided in the kit, but the Faller catalog picture appeared to be a news/magazine stand, or a train/bus ticket vendor

Greg- Of course you want it lit. I didn't expect otherwise.

Bill- Appreciate it, and yes, this little task was fun.

I'll check into my total light count, to see if I can accommodate a few more LEDS.

Love it Carl

Pity you couldn't put a working clock in.

Jerry- yes I remembered the time change---notice the clock is set close to 5:00pm -"it's always 5:00 somewhere!"

Wes- Glad you like it, but a working clock? You've got to be kidding! I'd need 4 of them!

Rich- Thank you very much.

If anyone could do it, its you Carl.

Beautiful lighting job Carl! The clocks are showing just the right amount of light.
They look completely authentic'. Maybe a very dim light underneath, not to bright or it will take away from the clocks'..Just my 2 cents'...

Definitely light the lower section.

It is dark in northern regions well before people head home in the days leading up to Christmas. And don't forget about the holiday shoppers out in the town square in those same early evenings. They might have a question or two as well, especially if they are in from out of town.

Wes-Thanks for the confidence building!

Ted and Kevin- Thank you fellas.

Dave- Appreciate that!

Thayer- Welcome! Very valid points you make.

Right. By the majority approving, the lower floor is getting some light! (Although it will take the back burner right now....)
