    Gosh, your town is very well-behaved... everyone crowding round the church rather than the soda shop. I bet you don't get much graffiti around there.... :)

    Great shot...

    That Dan is a splendid Photograph.
    That is the night scene we should all be aiming for.
    Very nice modeling.

    Sidewalk is well done. Hard to make it look like it is part of the ground and not just laid down on top of the street. Very nice!

    I use lights that I found at Michaels. They are in the flower section and are supposed to be used for lighting up flower arrangements. They come with a wiring harness and battery holder.

    How did you build the interior items (counter, stools, etc)? It looks fantastic!

    That looks beautiful Dan. I wish I had a good camara that took close up pictures.

    The countertop is made from styrene. There is also a hood fan over the grill that you can't see. The stools are earing backs (also available at Micheals) The floor is made of evergreen styrene with a grid pattern. I just painted it balck and white checkerboard to represent a tile floor.
