    Be the Mayor for five minutes! The kit is a plastic HO scale outhouse to which I added wood scribed interior walls and roof with "tar paper" added on the roof. The toilet paper is scratch built. Zeke, the sailor, helped out with the size 11 foot prints and left his name on the wall inside.  This 1930 Packard is just down the hill.

    Thanks everybody! Yep, it is tiny. By far the most difficult bit was drilling the holes in the toilet paper rolls. I had to glue them in place first and I reckon the superglue held a little tension 'cuz if you touched the drill bit to the roll off center, the roll went Ping! and flew off like a microscopic bullet.


    I sanded down the kit doors and exterior walls to get a warped, worn look (I hope) on the boards. The plastic seat is molded in dark brown, which helped.
