Thanks Ron for the info on the nativity scene. Building one for my daughter-in-law this Christmas. Been looking at this model for several years, and could not believe the price. Got everything figured out on the crèche but the depth of just the crèche. I am guessing about 4 inches deep from front to back? Fantastic work on the plates, I might add. Thanks Joe.
Thanks for the reply. I haven't tried lacquer - I'll have to read up and give it a try. Do you spray or brush? I am set up for buffing; I just use a grinder or the lathe with soft cotton wheels. Thanks again,
