A little outdoor signage

Greeting ledheads,
   This is nothing major but it gives these particular buildings a finishing touch. I have an old crumbling Harpers Weekly that had a few ads that I could use on these buildings. The photographer is out front taking shots of his new sign. The photo shop and the print shop get new signs. The fence around the photographers shop is actually a railroad track from an H. O. train set.

  14. Fantastic as always Captain. I get so jealous of your modeling ability, you really bring things to life!

    You totally need to build a youtube channel giving us lessons on your techniques.

    1. The skylight was a later addition when I was told that I should add more light to the building.
