Those are some beautiful figures made there. Now they need Tight Eye Simerly and Rabbit Foot Watson haha.

Now the models in the link; are they just computer models for the printer or are they the plastic models? I run a 3d modeling software and could probably attempt to build the crew.

Rock On!

My understanding is that they're completed "prints" from 3D files.
We'll see how that turns out.
Tight Eye would be a good figure. I'd love an Andy Kern one, too, but I know of no 30s photos of him.

My wife surprised me at the end of last week by making a full set of curtains to hide everything underneath the layout. I had no idea she was going to do this.

That does look great! In my case, the skirting would be made up of old towels and bed spreads held in place with thumbtacks.
The local Outlaws On30 group has black canvas held in place with velcro. Looks good in shows and is easy to put on and remove. But it wasn't cheap!

Attaching the curtains to the bottom edge of the fascia wasn't possible as the holsters for the throttles extend a fraction of an inch below the bottom edge of the fascia (I now wish I'd made the fascia much deeper than I had). I didn't pick the color of these curtains at all, she did, but now that I think on it I think the color works really well with a layout that has a LOT of green in it already.
But as for her, she is always full of surprises. For example, she's never been big on history (so of course, she marries a guy who is) but last Christmas when my living history group had their annual party, she came back to the house form a trip in town with a reproduction 1940s dress and her hair done up in that style. She'd never done anything like this before.
So, seeing this shot, you can tell why I picked 1943 as the year my layout takes place...
