Just as long as 2 walls are under the 6" measurement. I figured 6"X 6" would cover most smaller kits made by most structure companies. Not worried about square inches.

OK - I didn't want to get left out, and needed some sort of excuse to unpack some modelling boxes!

Its a kit - of sorts, and it came out of a big box.  A while ago I bought a box of boneyard castings off ebay from Randy, Downtown Deco.  So I'm basically building a DD kit, with modifications - and I get to choose the walls.  If I don't qualify for the challenge - fine - but I'll start a build thread all the same and build along - just change the build title if necessary.

Here is the front wall - its always grabbed my attention, and I knew I'd have to build something from it one day!

Cheers, Mark.
