- May 22, 2007Hi Gino,
Yes I did model that church for the 3PI layout but now I need to draw
things like doors and windows and put them in appropriate places! The
red paint through me off, I couldn't figure out why anyone would paint
what looked like a long abandoned building. Boarded up windows are
easier to draw then stained glass any old day!
