Remember the photo at left from 2011? I had blog-stitched a Baltimore rowhouse based on plans DH had made for his model railroad. Finally--over the holidays, he finished this section of his layout, with not one but three rowhouses!
Mind you, DH is an old-world craftsman, scratch-building all his structures, then creating roads and a backdrop in which to place them. Cars of the period (circa 1950), people, lamp posts and trees are added. Finally--argh--he "weathers" them to make them dirty so they look real. Certainly this isn't something needlepointers would ascribe to, but hey, this is model railroading at its best!
I've been working on a bunch of things since I last blogged, and hope to be able to show something for myself soon. But I promised to show his finished magnum opus when it was finished, and I think you'll agree the wait was worth it! See why the two of us rub along so well?
