So I'm fishing for some free market research on our model of Larkin Building.

Thanks for the notes. We'd certainly hoped to have the models done in time for Holiday gifts, but it's taken longer than expected and is unlikely they'd arrive in time for Christmas...just want to be up front about that. Interesting thought about a series of plinths...after all isn't the Hollyhock e...

We've added a Unity Temple model which you can see at the www.edificemodels.com website. Given the nature of the building, they work great in pairs. As always, we're open to suggesti...
