Building flat - The Highball Pub

A couple of things came together for this project.  I needed a small building flat for a narrow shelf between Fox Creek and Pearson and I had been given two 'neon window signs' from a long dead HO scale layout.  I had no idea if they worked or not but the price was right and here they are.....

They must have been pretty big for HO scale but they look alright here.  One says Coor's. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/sick.gif Sorry!  The other says Rita Hotel.  Some of you may have seen them before but as an x-N scale guy I hadn't.

Whatever works right?  /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/plain.gif

I pilfered a few neon sign images from eBay and put them together in photoshop to make a window and printed it out as a decal. I put the decal on thin clear styrene and darkened the black with acrylic paint around the signs. It was placed inside the window and back lit it with a malibu 4 watt light.
