    WoW! That's terrific!

    Thank you for posting this RonnyG, I'm not on Facebook so I would definitely not have come across it on my own. That looks like the 1:6 scale Majestic Barnabas, and if that's the case then this set is a pretty good sized one! The statue on the table is a great little added touch.

    I've been thinking of doing the Great House foyer & drawing room, it's a matter of time and space though.

    Been having a great time with my Old House parlor, just a few more steps and I'll be posting some new pix.

    WOW! It looks amazing! You really outdid yourself! Very nice touches throughout! I can almost see Willie coming through those swinging doors. LOL And I appreciate the blue candles and the secret room behind the bookcase.

    Thank you very much RonnyG! (It sure would be great to have a Willie Loomis figure!, I haven't seen a Mego-scaled face yet that works for me, except of course Spectre's prototype.)

    I started with the blueprint from the original set, which is how we see it in the Old House's first appearance in episode 70. I learned a great deal about this set when I was researching it (Thank you TubiTV, waaaaayyyy easier to freeze frames on my laptop than on my TV with DVDs.) Overall, stage right (fireplace, on) remains mostly the same throughout the series, with some minor changes to the structure plus paint & various window dressings. Stage left is fluid and goes through many changes, starting with the addition of the bookcase when Matthew kidnaps Victoria.

    I had to compromise on height due to space limitations, but generally the width is more or less 1/9 scale of the dimensions of the original set with some adjustments. My model stops at the outer edge of the window on stage right, and I had to wing it for dimensions on the stub piece, wall & bookcase on stage left. This was such a fun project and an excellent distraction while my knee is on the mend. If I could figure out how to do this kind of thing full time, I'd be a happy camper.

    Thank you Confessional! I'm thinking of customizing a distant relative from the future, perhaps from the year 3,978
