Hello everyone, happy new year!

I finished this house before Christmas. It is in HO scale and I got the pattern from Edmung Gillon's book Suburban Houses of the Twenties.

Mr. Gillon called this a tudor house but it looks French to me.

I am finishing one more HO scale building and then I am going to start Howard's Ten Cent City.

Thank you Howard for your kind words. Here is a picture of my photo setup. The backdrop is wrapping paper I got off the internet. I think I did a search for snow trees wrapping paper.

Thank you Lynn for your kind words.

Howard, I originally purchased a 24"x24" portable photo studio. It came with the box and two light sources. The box was really too small for what I wanted to use it for but I have been using the lights that came with it. Amazon has a similar setup which can be found here: https://www.amazon.com/FOSITAN-Continou ... B0798DMM35

I only use the camera in my Galaxy Note 8 phone. It takes pictures almost a well as my big camera.

I hope this helps,

Lee
