Casey's painting has inspired Mizzy and I for our own buildings, and we've copied his techniques to make the roofs and brickwork on our buildings look convincing.

The only Modeltown we have though are the tunnel mouths, of which I had to adapt and widen for our layout....

...and is right twice a day, without fail. :)
My one habitually looses time, I had to modify the handle to be able to alter the time. You should just be able to make out the piece of bent brass tube used. The time shown is it’s version of what it thinks the time is now, perhaps it is always trying to get back to the time it should be at if it were in Switzerland? And yes those are Occre offcuts to make it easier to put on the wall.
