I've been busy on the bench and at work and have neglected my duties to keep everyone up to date...says my Sunday Breakfast Buddies.
I'm still in a state of limbo while one of my daughters is living with me. I gladly tore everything down so she could stay between trips around the world. It also offered me the opportunity to re-think things...something I do habitually. But no matte what I need structures and fussy bits and have been plowing away with that. New palm patterns with upgraded fronds, some new eateries and businesses to service...all in the name of keeping the Chatsworth them alive.
Georges will compete with Mummerys across from each other. Georges was the spot to be if you wanted good grub and trains 10 feet outside the main windows. Located in Riverside it was perched on the corner across from a large lumber yard crossing the avenue at a diagonal. Perfect spot and its authentic. This was laser cut out of acrylic and laser board with simple printed signage done on Corel to match the prototype. I have the main shot elsewhere and will add it later. It's busy and bright and a great contrast to grey and brown.
Ah, the lumber yard yet to be designed. But that won't stop me from messing around with some details. Like I said, Georges is across from a big lumber yard itching to be modeled so I scaled this scene and made up a prototype. Not sure how many I will eventually build but they are great for making things look authentic.
