Hi Cheyenne, You get another WOW from me. I like the railing, skylight, everything!! i personally like the pitch its at now. I want to know more about this railing, I think I can picture this finished and i think the railing is great. What is it from and where can I find it? This just gets better and better. Have you gotten Skype on your pc yet? Cheers Kevin

Nice update - I would go shallower on the skylights. These don't look bad, but I've never seen any so tall. Could be proven wrong it's not hard to do.

My memory serves me to say that a simple mast anntena would be a start. You could also put a few horizontal short pieces near the top. I want to say I've seen one that reminds me of fly swatter but I have to look for my reference picture. I'll do that and repost.

The railing are fine.

Thanks Kevin & Scott, Kevin the railings are HO scale and are by Model Power, from my l.h.s. and no haven't gotten Skype yet but Chris Edwards, a.k.a. Tango20 has discussed it with me, might check it out.

Scott, I'm going to make a rounded version [ lower in height ] and see how that looks, even though I'm kinda partial to the existing 45 degree ones. I just think that when weathered up and rusty and dirty weather beaten they would look better as is. But then again I don't have any other type done yet to compare it to.
I really want to have antennas and wire from hell all over the place - like looking behind my audio, video stuff at home and saying " holy sh*t what a mess ".
Thanks again guys - Cheyenne
