That is a great looking set of buildings, Ray! You're as good at this as you are at making your GT's functional and pretty!

That is just incredible. Could you lay a ruler or yard stick in front of it so we could kind of judge the size. 

Thanks.

That a a very very fine feet of craftsmanship. Just very well done, how long did it take you from start to finish.


Is the construction as you went along, did you have some sort of plan at the onset or just from the top of your head.

I think about 50 hours.

No predetermined plans, just a general  idea of what I want it to look like.

All my buildings ( except for one ) that I've done so far are freelance designs and not copied from an existing building.

Thanks for the last photo. Really puts things in perspective. You packed a lot of detail into a small area and it looks sharp.

Absolutely Amazing Ray :thumbs:  :thumbs: .  The fine detail work you put into your scale models is evident in all of the pictures.  Like Kenny said above your models are as good looking as your tractors and other shop projects turn out to be.  

Excellent work, will keep an eye out for a building permit being issued for a new (old) Barber Shop.
