Just saw Chris33's thread on the A forum - and this has me salivating:

First I saw his Z scale Mike (very nice!), which prompted a closer look. I figured this was another "rich man's" thing, but it aint.

possibilities!

Jon,

Cast a shadow on the Penney, take a photo. Then convert it into a raster image.  ;)
