    My largest scratchbuilding adventure to date. Certainly nothing much compared to some of your guys' work, but it still turned out kinda kewl I think.

    This little coffee house is named after my father-in-law, who is a rep for illy (some fancy pants coffee) - hence the posters in all the windows.

    I will admit the skylight was trickier than I thought it was going to be, and is a little offkilter. It still needs to be weathered.

    Michael, looks just fine to me. What scale is it? I think anyone here would be proud to display it on their layout. Good job.

    wonderful job!

    The sign and window detail really adds to it too, I like
    the skylight, I can almost imagine sitting inside with
    a nice Latte .. which reminds me.. time for Coffee :)

    Nice modeling job Mike! The only problem is I had to order 500 of those teeny-tiny latte's just to get enough for one sip!

    cheers
    :D Val
