    Scott...More great work!! I agree with everyone else, the jogging part was a perfect choice for that area....finishes it off nicely and adds interest.
    Keep it up!..........please:winker:

    Finished another house, this time it is my friend's house (although I mirrored it so it would fit better on the layout. We learned to do the base a little different on this one and I did a better job with the garage, doors and windows. Unfortunately, it is really hard to photograph it on the layout as it faces away from me so that is why the pictures aren't the best. Plus, the contrast of colors made it difficult to see the detail. These are the pictures of the completed model:

    Here it is on the layout:

    The house ended up being about an inch longer than I expected so that is why the backyard is so small. But as the owner said, I like trains so it is ok to have them running that close to his house.

    Hey that looks just like my house, just reversed. You are doing a great job on the layout. I really enjoyed the tour last night. Adding the shrubs really made a difference. :thumb: Keep up the good work.

    another small section

    Police officer: "Are you ok, sir?"
    Guy in ugly purple sweatsuit (holding side): "Had to run.....away.....from....bear....on jogging path."
    Bear: "I am just exercising."

    My scale daughter couldn't wait to use the trampoline so I ran out and took a picture of her from the tracks, the trains were not running at the time:mrgreen:
