The minifigs used also represent the real characters well.
Thanks Kiel, and appreciate you sharing the picture; in fact, it was my inspiration image.
In re. to the figs: I wanted to use the suit from Indiana Jones 7682 Shanghai Chase
with black bowtie for Tattoo, but I've got the box under a stack in the garage. Also, I had to cheat a little bit on the short legs. The actual piece is tan, but I changed the color in the picture.

it looks just like the real thing.
Appreciate you saying that Buddy. I know the house could have probably been a whole lot better.

What I really like is the "poster".
Thanks Zorbas. I spent half a day photo-editing this, from the pictures to the additional add-ins. I've been wanting to make this for a few months, and I had planned to make a large "retro-style" LEGO box adding different components, like the house and the car/jeep. I ended up going for the movie poster look, and I like the finished poster (although I already see some parts of the house that I want to change).

This is a fantastic building !
Thank you Geertos. I ran out of several pieces with the building; red sloped roofs, white 1x1s, and white tiles. That presented quite the challenge, esp. the red roof slopes. I wanted the roof much larger and ended up having to shrink it down, placing it on plates. The tower is also a bit square.I still plan to do some work on the building, but probably not today. What's funny is the image makes it look so small, but yet the real thing is much larger. I'll share some pictures if I make modifications.
