Are you going to do just the buildings or the whole diorama Karl?  this one will try your patience and will not be one of those done in several weeks.  Have fun and you will do a magnificent job.

Hey Jerry, Steven, Eric, Gregory, Steve D and Mark:

Hey Guys thanks for following along. I'm doing just the buildings as it has to be installed on my friend layout and we don't know where at this point. So the buildings have to be built and fit into the layout at A later date.

Hello Karl, the main floor looks great. That's a lot of individual boards and I like the coloring.   Jeff
