You can see a bit of it during setup from the rear here:
Unfortunately there aren't many other pictures available at this time, I didn't take any myself, so I have had to rely on the other's pictures. I will take much better pictures and in process pictures at our show at the end of the month and add them then.
Some information about the Layout:
Almost all that you see here is Modular to Market street specs. Each floor is separate, each roof removes, even the "Double-Shark Bar" is modular. There are 18 movable and removable modular sections. only the docks, supports for the Bar, and the ground floor levels of the two rear buildings are non-removable.
Additionally, many of the buildings have sides that are different from the fronts, so that the buildings can be turned sideways to reveal whole new facades. For example, the Italian restaurant can be turned to make a more simple greek styled apartment building, and the surf shop has 3 sides of picture windows so it can be placed at either corner or midstreet.
I made every effort to ensure that anything that sticks out further than the 16x16 base is easily removable should that side need to be turned and placed next to another building. Thus, nearly every sign, awning, even the decorative SNOT tiles on the sides of the building, are mounted on headlight mounting bricks and can be removed to leave a wall with no protrusions. Some of the roofs, and the base level of the Chineese restaurant are exceptions to this.
Future improvements will be the addition of a few third floors, and the possible lenghthening of the street section by 16 or 32 studs. I may also build a couple of buldings with at least one side that mirrors the facade of another so they can be combined into a 32 stud long building. A more detailed marina with better boats is also planned.
I'd welcome comments and critiques. Also, if there are any suggestions for what kind of shops or buildings to add.
