    David, this is correct. At least, when you're drinking lots of coffee you stay wide awake all night. And so you might have a slight chance to follow Robin's pace through his projects! :D :D :D

    Sears? Amazing, Robin.
    Maybe? after a couple more of your buildings, I might try it again.

    Sears catalogs?!?!?!! :confused:

    *WHAP* (sound of hand hitting head) Why didn't I ever think of that before... :D

    For those of us in NJ area you could use Kmart or bed and bath or linens and things fliers as well. Pat

    Fantastic as always. Since I don't think I commented on your last couple buildings (I was offline for a few hours :D ) let me say they're awesome too.

    Keep up the step-by-step instructions, maybe someday I'll tackle one!

    That hotel sure is coming along nicely! It's got a very interesting shape, I might add... noticeable from this last photo... must be filling an odd spot on the module. ;)

    Man, Robin, you Rock, babe! How many of these gorgeous structures do you have in place now?

    Wow Robin, that's looking great. I love the architectural moldings - they really add a lot.

    Regarding curtains, I've had great results from photos posted online. Just do a Google search for window coverings - lots of sites sell these and have conveniently provided thumbnail photos for us modellers!

    Keep up the great work Robin!

    Robin.... I am (with your permission ) going to put the whole of your City of Griswold buildings on a CD so that I can run a workshop at The Saturday afternoon Group I belong to.
    A lot of my friends would like to follow in the steps of the Cardboard Master. I humbly suggest that you should think of doing it commercially or at least copyright your methods
    I know that you do it for the advancement of our great Hobby,but what the Hell...make a few bucks for your effort I hope this is food for thought. Anyway many Thanksfor the inspiration you give us all

    You are most welcome to do whatever you need to share these buildings Jimmy. I am not looking for any copyrighting or going commercially. All I want is to know I have been of help to my model railroader friends.
    I will get back to this building but have been busy entertaining my two grandaughters and of course their Mom and Dad who have spent the holidays here.

    As we slowly get back to normal after the holidays I got back to the hotel and am adding the kitchen and service areas.
