    I am using couple of Rokuhan buildings in the module, but I like to improve it. First, I cut off the vertical sign to remove the Japanese building look, then I paint it, because I don’t like the plastic, look. The last thing I did is to use leftover NZT signs, which so much better then Rokuhan.

    I got the street markings done, and I am using Alvaro Cortez cars to cover up the imperfections. :D

    Tim, I usually do greens last. We sure don’t want to get Alexandria upset. :D

    Joe, I used highways & byways stripes and stencils.

    With all those sports cars, I bet Barney is making a killing on speeding fines :D

    The roads look great. What did you use for the street markings?

    The cars are from my z scale models. Alvaro can be contacted through Facebook.

    The roads are made from styrene, and it’s painted with a coat of black, gray, and brown. The lines and stencils are from Highway & Byways.

    Looking great John!It would be nice if these building were still able to buy! I've have been always impressed with the work by the older Z scale even if I fit into the time period I wasn't into it as much then. Now it's hard to find good things to build. So I have gone to 3D printing things. I started a set of building that are in the town here in Georgetown. Nothing but the roofs come off easy to put together so not as much fun but painting will be a lot! here is a shot of one side of main street Georgetown, Ohio! these were printed by someone else with a home printer! not done by Shapeways! Z&US Model did these seven buildings for me. all Z scale

    That'll be a great scene. Would the person who made these be willing to make more? I'd be interested.
