Thanks guys, I just love sharing the ideas I see or come up with (I love seeing your ideas too). Kitenerd, you're always so good with story side of things, you must be a veracious reader. Great story line there, the Bronze Lion - Protector of Valoria. I was just thinking of a baddie, but a goodie works too.

Anyway -
TIP #2 - Adding PUNCH to the interior lighting of your buildings, when viewing from outside.
Paint the underside (CEILING) of the Floors and Roofs to relfect more light. I used Pokorny White and Pokorny Cardboard on the underside of Ceilings that might be exposed if viewed from below like a deck or balcony. As you will see in the photos I screwed up with one open area below two floors, one is white and the other is cardboard. Oops :lol: This is a project anyone can do and with any type paint. These took two coats to look decent, but it's not really for viewing anyway.

Next post on Signage, some easy ideas for various ways to mount your magnetic signs.
thanks - great idea + good examples. massive difference in light reflection

No new CBS Mods and I've had trouble getting pictures done of my modular tree system ideas, so it'll be a bit longer on those. I have sculpted some things for better representation of the tree idea, but it'll be a bit longer (month or two?).

BUT, I thought I would toss this 1/2 Tile Street Market out to view. I did it a few months ago from the mods in this thread. I didn't realize the sign said 'INN' at this point. Duh... ;)

Will you be magnetizing a CBS doorway wall, so it can mount the same way? I kind-of wish we had a centered doorway for this and other applications. Maybe a small double door not as wide as the large double we have now, but maybe between the single and double width doorways. A french door with window openings or something would be cool too.

I've been back for almost a week, but have been too busy to get to my "tree" ideas, Maybe in a week or two I'll get back to that thread with some ideas. My problem there is that I could see a whole KS done just for trees and that is uber-unlikely.
I will be trying a double door wall soon...

I bought a product called Darice Plastic Canvas, in black. I also cut a piece of clear plastic for the window glass from some kids toy packaging.

I can't help myself. look at the picture of the Darice Plastic Canvas with its original price label.

The label in French - says color "negro", which is Spanish.
