Sounds interesting, having a Soviet Tank driving through the building would be nice !

Ok , now that I know Wally Timberthumbs here can post pics , I'll show you what I've got so far .
This will probably get real big and involved so please bear with me .
Hopefully after the playoffs today I'll have another update .

Very nice start to what looks like a hugely ambitious project. Love the stairwell and the Mockingbird statue. I can safely say I have never seen any kind of pool modeled in a dio so far so that gets high marks from me.
Can't wait to see how you approach the rest of this unique build.

Wow Cheyenne looks very cool!
You do have a penchant for those massive projects.

I remember years ago on another forum you had two massive builds going. I think one was an overhead signal railway tower and one was a dock scene ...???
Whatever happened to those?

Thanks.

You know I love the low-tech solutions to things and this is right up my alley as far as those brick molds go. Where can I get those?

Steve , thanks man much appreciated .

Jerry , weeeeeeeell those are modular splice covers from when I worked in the phone company . I recently moved my modeling room and I found the one I posted in my last pic to show Dave .
However it's making me nuts trying to find the other 6 or 7 that are somewhere in my room . If I don't find them then all I have is the one in the pic and whats left from the last batch I made in the tin cover .

Anthony thanks , hey man how's it goin , long time no see , your boys did good this year . AC/DC was a pretty good combo for the Raiders . They look like they could go further next year , Carr rocks .

My boys unfortunately had Johnny Failball , and will more than likely [ once again ] try and draft another untested college wonder blunder for their q-back .

It's real hard being a Browns fan ..............
