      Oh sure those flats will fade right into the background ...

      Who do you think you're fooling?

      The Cliff delivers again!

      It is always fun watching you do one of these things, Cliff. You take it to excellent, and we all think you are done, and then you take it sooooooo much further! Awesome!

       

      It will be entertaining to hear if any visitors notice that your curtains have layers...

      What they said on this one. I'm sure they have covered it all.

      Well, Cliff's silhouettes really have a lot more life in them than the versions used in the Lionel and American Flyer passenger cars!  (But maybe those folks were really tired after a long day's work.)

       

      Great job, David Meashey

      Through the week I've been cutting, highlighting and assembling the curtains. These were all designed in the same cad drawing, but were cut with the "Cricut" my wife gave me a few years ago for Christmas. Since I pleaded a lot for it, I'm glad to finally have a project to use it on! All of this is just felt; nothing really fancy. I'd thought to put lace in, but there wasn't a clear way to do so without getting deeper into curtain design... Since there's been so many pieces and time required already, honestly I just wanted to pinch this thing off asap.

       

       

      The back surface of the walls needed design, cutting and assembly as well, and that was yesterday afternoon's effort. All these pieces were cut and drawn on by the Cricut, which has pretty amazing precision. It's not possible to get this detail with a laser (at least mine); and the material would just torch up. 

       

       

      The materials I used were felt, cardstock (manilla envelopes), pre-printed paper, adhesive colored vinyl and foil. 

       

       

      Here's the window boxes all assembled, and during testing.

       

       

       

      Then final assembly. The opera house was more involved, because of its two street lamps. 

       

       

      Here's the dual-building flat.

       

       

      Lastly, the building with the party going on...

       

       

       

      And on that note, I'll declare this a wrap!

       

      At least for the build part. The next effort will be "planting" these on the layout.

      I'm thinking that CONFUSION reigns in that middle room...(not that the other rooms aren't suspect as well.)
