Lorrie's Red Light District by FOS
« on: September 22, 2017, 03:29:10 AM »
My wife, Lorrie completed her Red Light District and I thought I'd share it here.  She chose her own colors for the build.  I think they look nice.  The RLD will be set into it's pemanent home on our layout over the weekend.  Thanks for looking!

Some great life in that scene!

I love the pic with the double doors asunder and the glimpse of the scantily clad girl dancing!  It really manages to give a great feeling of depth.  The parrot in the last pic looks a tad out of scale???!!! ;D

Great work - I will look out for photos of it added to the layout.

Cheers, Mark.

Love it!  The BURLESK backlighting is especially cool.

Mark, Janbouli, Curt, Mike C and Jeff--> Thank you!


Mike C-- Good to see you!!!  This diorama will go into Magnolia (under the Hooten Holler logging area).  It's all on me to finish up Houligans Alley to complete the town

What a spectacular job !! I have been working on a more R rated version ( had to bash a couple things to accomplish this) like changing the Burlesk to a Jazz Club  and this has inspired me to get back to it
