Thanks a ton to all for the kind words. There are great quality kits out there to be found for those desiring 'old west' models. I have used some for the 'base' of many models I have produced--including the 'Panhandle'. My newest model (the 'Big Thunder Epitaph') is a scratch-built using manufactured parts only as accent. Next project to tackle is the Assay Office (the building next to the Big Thunder Saloon) --using plastered walls--ought to be a challenge!
