    Suggestion.

    Since you recreated some letters, do you think you could try making the wanted letter W?

    I considered that. I may actually do it now.

    Oooh. Are you good at making Anything Muppets? Would love to see Ben and Thursday...

    That, probably not. I do still occasionally search for Muppet figures though. Presently, Herry, Rosita, and Abby are the only ones remaining on my list.

    Wow, D'Snowth!!! Just wondered in to this thread. Amazing work. How many hours would you estimate you have in this?

    I honestly couldn't tell you - like the show itself, my model has always remained a WIP ever since I first put it together in 2001. I'm sure the hours could very well be in the hundreds, maybe, I'm not sure.

    Great work D'Snowth once again for all your work you've done on this scale model. I'm telling you. I'm starting to get an "Itch & Scratch" on wanting to make my very own just I know it would be time consuming but still you've out done your self. Plus I don't see any thing wrong with the letter and number's eyes. They look great to me. Keep it coming!

    The hand-drawn aspect of this is so charming, and that only adds to it.

    I know Kyle and a few others have expressed a desire to construct their own models, and I say you should go for it, because I see others have done the same:

    Here's one that was made for some kind of library program:

    Meanwhile, somebody on DeviantArt was evidently inspired by my model to build their own:

    It reminds me a lot of what my model looked like way back in like 2002-2007 or so.

    The same person also has a version of his model with ATC:

    Oooh, really like the ATC model...

    You know. Something you should make. SNOWTH.

    :p

    Yeah, even if I wanted to add ATC to my model (which I don't), I don't even have the space to accommodate such an expansion anyway. Heck, I had actually downsided mine when I began updating it back in 2010/2011; not only did the Arbor used to be much bigger (because it used to have the community garden in the back), but the alley next to Big Bird's nest was also over twice as wide as it is now (even used to park Oscar's Sloppy Jalopy back there).

    NICE! :flirt: I always loved that skit when I was a kid. For some reason, just seeing the way the W went upside down into an "M" intrigued me.

    For years, I kept trying to figure out how I could go about lighting my model, since the surrounding lamps in my room would only cover certain parts of it, while leaving others in shadows. At one point, I even considered constructing some sort of a makeshift miniature lighting grid, using the kind of mini LED lights you can find in places like Walmart and such . . . but they run on batteries, and die quickly, so that'd be more trouble than it'd be worth. It wasn't until I was shopping in Office Depot a while back, and something caught my eye: a slender, lightweight, flexible, goose-neck LED lamp . . . that was when I had an a-ha moment, so since I had gotten part of my tax refund (over two months later, and still no signs of getting the rest), I splurged and purchased two of the lamps, and set them up to where now, my diorama is lit, bruh!

    And I have to say, I love the color and temperature of the LED bulbs for the diorama: standard halogen bulbs are nice to light up the inside of your house, but were too warm and "yellow" for the model - especially for the old school areas, it looked incorrect.
