NIGHT LIGHTS - MAY 2009

This slideshow documents our progress in lighting the layout as of May 2009. Just adding this little touch transforms the layout into a magical wonderland. You will note that some of the buildings still "glow" either because we haven't gotten around to masking off their interiors or because the way the building is constructed we can't get to the inside without destroying it. For the ones we can get into, we are always looking for folks to volunteer to do these tasks. You can do it at home if you  so we can arrange getting the building to you. In the meantime, enjoy the photos.

 

MAY 2008

Here is our progress with selected scenes as of May 2008. You can see just how much difference a little cleanup can do with a scene. And the cleanup can be done in your own workshop. Jim Allen did his at home. We will furnish not only the scene components to be restored, but also photos of how it looked 'before' to guide you in your restoration.
