Thank you for sharing this Masterpiece with us! It's been a joy (and an instructive one at that) to follow this Master Class.

Great build thread (learned some new tricks) and great results! I particularly like the chimneysweeps.

Your modeling is superb in every bit of its execution, whether it works or goes into the basket, that doesn't matter. By the way, please send me the basket, I'm sure I could use its contents somewhere.
All kidding aside, I'm glad to be of service where I can. I am still amazed with your methods of construction and all of your modeling skills. All of your models are beautiful renditions to behold.
I like the foggy pictures and the last one with the lighting. Spectacular !!

Thank you all so much Bill, Jim, Bob S., Walt, Russ, Frank, Gave G., Fred, Greg, Pete, Dave E., Rich, Jeff, Jerry, Martin, Mike and Bob H.!

I am flattered by all your comments, and glad you enjoyed this build.
It certainly helps to have interested followers... to keep the fires burning...

I'd like to build something "a little more modern" next time....

Frank- Great idea on the lid- Now that it's not in my own home- it's the daughters responsibility to keep the dust off!

What a wonderful build. I followed along from the start and enjoyed every new post. Thank you for tasking the time to show us how a master builds. I will be watching for your next "project."

Carl, Hope you don't mind but I took your wonderful photo and did a quick and dirty
background switch from my old diorama just to see what it would look like with more roofs and
chimneys. It still needs a lot of refinement.
