The artillery paint rack is a nifty idea.

Since your thread from yesterday got eaten by the bug…

Consider this a request to add Fly's boarding house & photography studio and the Harwood house to your Old West line.

I'll see if i can find some good images to work with and i will do them both. I think i will do some existing models witout the raised boardwalks as these we not used in Tombstone. Presumably this was the case in many other towns too.

Here is the best of everything I've been able to find online. First, the best depiction I've found of the gunfight at the OK Corral:

Rear of Harwood & Fly's:

This is a model of Fly's, which includes the photography studio in the back I have no idea how well researched it is, but it's the only image I've found online that shows what the studio may have looked like: link

BEWARE OF THIS PAINTING

Although it purports to show the gunfight location, it's based on the photo above, and the buildings are actually the Papago Cash Store & Bauer's Meat Market, astride the back entrance to the corral.
