    I was playing around with scissors and paper (I'm at work, lol) and made some walls that are 5.6" x 2.9" (75' x 38', more or less). For the height, I went with 5.25" (70') and it seems a little...

    It looks great with 90% of the roof installed. I wonder if the employees would enjoy the extra fresh air if I just skipped the stupid triangles? :rolleyes:

    I seem to be making some progress with the GMM etched brass. If it takes paint well I'll probably be OK, otherwise it's back to trying to use graphics.
