Ten Cent City looks great. I love the beautiful colors and simplicity. The proportions and lines are just great.

update...6-10-2019...

greetings to all...

here is the completed house number 10 in the series...the 1950's "hot pink" may be a little intense...but it really looks good next to the gray church...

hope to post another house pattern and picture of it in the primed cardboard status later this month...stay tuned...

my very best regards...
