    Howdy all,

    Finally got around to cleaning up some things today. As a bonus, I posted a pic of my completed Muppet Show Sign.

    The "decals" are available in the downloads section of the site. I'll post some instructions with pictures sometime in the next couple of weeks.

    Enjoy and let m know what you think!

    You should get a rough idea because of the Palisades action figure in the "O".
    Nice sign, although the red looks a bit pale.

    Glad to hear y'all like it. It's my favorite Muppet project so far.

    It's about 13 inches from top to bottom and 17 inches across. It sticks out from the wall about 3 or 4 inches. I had to go to Kinkos to get the pieces printed on 11x17 paper. Mainly, so I could get the background piece to be seamless.

    As for the red, I pulled it from a screen grab for the original file. There is always some washout when you print something. I believe the flash may have had some effect as well. It's like alot of things, you gotta see it in person to really appreciate it.

    (For the super curious, I scanned one of the season one DVD's to get the lettering to use as a base shape.)

    Thanks again for the praise!

    Great stuff as always! Any updates on the blueprints for the balcony?

    Unfortunately, Vic, I'm a bit behind. I had a job change recently and lost access to the program I was using. So...I gotta start over. I'm toying with the idea of just building another Balcony from scratch and selling it on Ebay. Then I could take pictures all the way from start to finish. It'd give me a chance to refine some things as well.

    Ya know, I just thought of something, you should try making the arches of the Muppet show Theme Song, it'd be cool.

    Love the Balcony!!! Would like to attempt to build one myself. What materials did you use to build it? Foam-core? What did you print the decals on? What are the exact dimensions? Sorry for all the questions I'm just excited about trying this for myself.

    I'm with you now.

    I hadn't thought of that. It might be a good way to give some height to my display and put some of the other figures up that aren't there.

    Hmmmmmm........
