Cheez - I just noticed this. The sidewalks and roads are crazy good. How did you do them? (Everything else is good too, of course, but the sidewalks, roads and landscaping in general really jumped out at me.) I have fond memories of the Superior Bakery kit. I screwed up at least two of them back in the day.....

I started laughing when I saw the police car parked in front!

Thanks. I make my roads and sidewalks with plaster of paris. I use a mixture of acrylic paint, white glue, vinegar, dish soap and water. The color goes all the way through and the inconsistency is what makes it look pretty good.

Agreed, but where I come from, the police car would be parked on the yellow curb.  >:(
