    After I cut up my DPM kit to make a door for the bakery, I just had to get another one and make it as it was meant to be: an auto parts place.

    Of course my main reason was so that I could put all these little parts in the window. I sure had fun taking an old watch apart to get all these eensy beensy pieces.

    That looks great Val! Nice model. By the way, I'll be stopping by. My '92 Saturn needs a new main spring! :) Clever use of the watch parts in the window display

    Great modeling, Val! :cool:

    You must have strange watches in Canada - at least ours don't have a compressor built in, like the one you used in the right window! :D :D :D


    (Just kidding, the use of watch parts for fantasy details is really a GOOOOOOD idea!

    Thanks everyone!

    Hehehe, Ron - you've never heard of compressed air watches? I'm suprised! They're very common here!

    Blake, you caught me. Couldn't sleep until I finished detailing the building.

    And Ralph, it seems we're fresh out of mainsprings. Would a second hand help at all?

    Hehe Jim, as you see - this is a Swiss product! Massive quality, ain't it? :D :D :D

    I'm glad Val found a Canadian one - even one with a compressor! (Must be easier to take apart...) Val, do your clocks run faster with compressors? ;)
