The First Bates House Is In!
Felix, from Paderborn, Germany submitted the first photo of a completed Bates House model!
Felix writes, "I used all the optional window
and transparency parts. I also added another copy of the front door
and the "eyebrow" of the oval window for extra three-dimensionality. I
scaled the house down to 70%, so it is about 1/87th scale. The coin (2 Euros) is
about 1" in diameter."
Excellent, Felix! Beautifully built and beatuifully modified!
I am always a little nervous after releasing a new model, fearing that I forgot something or
that parts might not fit. The first successful model (built by some one else) is always a relief and

Speaking of Haunted Dimensions Models
Once again this year, the Forest Park branch of the Clayton County Library System in Forest Park, Georgia, have created a wonderful new Halloween diorama for their patrons
using my model kits!
You can see last year's Forest Park diorama at this Flickr page.
This year's scene uses the ScreamHouse model, the Crypts, the Conservatory Coffin, Leota's Tombstone and the Phantom Manor Pillar! The scene goes one step further this year with the addition of LED lights! The Forest Park staff started working on the models in August in
order to get them completed on time!
Read about it here.
I said it last year and I'll say it again, the dedication of the staff at the Clayton County Library System in Forest Park is amazing! This diorama not only shows great pride in what they do, but it also sparks the imaginations, curiosity and creativity of their patrons, young and old! It makes me very proud to see the models used in such a wonderful way.
You can see this years Forest Park diorama at this Flickr page.

More Magnificent Models
Matthew, from Gilbert, Arizona constructed the New Orleans Square model. Matthew tells me that this is only the second paper model he has ever built, but it looks like he's a pro.
Can you see Cinderella (from the Disney Parks Collectors pack) up on the second floor verandah?
Will, from Seattle, WA created this beautiful collection of Haunted Mansions. This is also Will's first experience with paper modeling, and despite a few small set-backs, such as runny glue and a collapsing shelf, the models look spectacular!
Speaking of Haunted 3D models, Patrick sent me photos of the first
Canadian Phantom Manor model.
It looks awesome, Patrick!

Light Up Leota
Carrie sent me photos of the modifications she made to the Leota tombstone model.
Carrie writes: "In the curved relief of leota I cut out her eyes and used Vellum for scrapbooking to cover the backs of the openings. Before I added the eyes I carefully added her eyes to the velum with a sheer marker. I cut a hole in the front of the tombstone behind where the relief covers, I also cut a hole in the back of the tombstone to allow the insetion of the light.
I used a simple battery operated tea light to light it".
The center photo (above) shows the support strap for the electric tealight.
Carrie also included photos of her other completed models.
Fantastic mod, Carrie!
Tom writes: "I printed the railings a second time on regular printer paper and glued them
to the reverse side of the card railings so that I wouldn't see the white
backing of the paper from any angle. I took the time to cut out the iron
rails along the roof (after printing a whole black page on the reverse
side of them) and am quite happy with the results."

Tom, who is thirteen years old, constructed this beautiful version of the Phantom Manor model, along with the Entrance Pillar, and two of the tombstones.

You should be proud of yourself, Tom! I hope you send me a photo of your
New Orleans Square model when it is finished!

Haunted Mansion Models Are Everywhere!
I received more model photo submissions last week, and they seem to be getting more and more creative and elaborate.
Pete, from Kansas City, MO built his Phantom Manor model, and retouched the photo to look like an old sepia tone photograph. Very creepy and realistic!
Karl, who is from Canada, but currently living in Korea, constructed this gorgeous diorama. Karl's clever use of craft beads and charms made for a spectacular recreation of the cemeteries and landscaping elements .
Karl writes: "While I was Halloween shopping, I discovered the wonderful world of beads and charms. I found a crow and many animal charms to make a pet cemetery (D&D miniatures were also used). Their bases are made with fancy beads (or foam-board). Other beads can be used to make lamps and lamp stands. There were some chair charms and a metal backing for a gemstone that made an excellent outdoor table set. All the windows light up, including the front porch."
Karl also included cut-outs of Roman Dirge's haunted mansion characters, used in the "Welcome Foolish Mortals" comic book series. It's a fantastic work of art, Karl!
Jack sent photos of all three of his completed haunted mansions.
Pete writes: "In the Phantom Manor mansion I put lights in the windows to give it an eerie look.
I added trees to The Liberty Square and New Orleans Square mansions to make them more life like".
I LOVE the lights in your Pahntom Manor, Jack! I especially love the yellow porch light!
I'm going to have to learn how to add lights to my models!

Jeff writes: "I tried to build the New Orleans Squares model but got a little frustrated with the gluing of all the small pieces, so I went bigger, 4 times as big to be exact!"
Below is a photo comparison of the orginal size (left) and Jim's mega-sized New Orleans Square model.
I cannot tell what size paper Jeff used, but it appears that he printed the larger model in sections, then pieced together the sections to create the oversized parts. A lot of work, but it looks great!
Phantom Manor Model in America
Carrie from Louisville Kentucky submitted the first Phantom Manor model photo from the US!
Very "moody" photo, Carrie. :)

Haunted Happenings at Forest Park
The Clayton County Library System web site posted photos of a beautiful Halloween display that was built for the Forest Park Branch Library in Forest Park, Georgia. The display, wh ich was constructed by the Forest Park staff, features the Liberty Square Mansion, The New Orleans Square mansion, and the miniature crypts. They also created a paper mache hill and cliff face, as well as little tissue ghosts!
You can read about it at their site, HERE
They also posted a Flickr site with detailed photos, HERE
This was a lot of work, and it was a wonderful thing to do for the patrons of the Forest Park Branch Library! It is a testimony to the dedication of the staff!
BRAVO, Forest Park!

The United Kingdom Scores Another!
This is the second Phantom Manor model submission, and once again
it comes from the United Kingdom!
Gareth, from Bristol UK writes,
"I know Rhodri was the first in Wales to create the model. Am I the first in England???"
Yes you are, Gareth, and you did a magnificent job!
Gareth also writes, "I also shone my black light on the model and the
result was quite surprising and beautiful."
So, the question now is, will Scotland represent? :)

Liberty Square Mansion Masterpiece
Tim, who works for Universal Hollywood, constructed this magnificent Liberty Square haunted mansion, and surrounding grounds, as a birthday gift to a friend. Tim also designed his own front patio and stairway which leads from the mini Entra nce Pillar model at the front of the path.
Tim writes, "I adapted the house to contain a light at the
top of the tower, as well as lights in the greenhouse. I also cut out all the
windows in the greenhouse and backed that structure with a green plastic film to
give it more of a true 'glass' look. I made the bat weathervane so it freely spins."
Well Tim, I am sure there are a lot of people looking at this and wishing THEY were getting this for their birthdays!

The First Phantom Manor Submission!
Rhodri, from Britain writes,
"I had been waiting for the phantom manor model kit to come out for
some time and as soon as you released it I printed it out straight away
and began work on it for two days straight! "
"I think my phantom manor model is the only one in Britain at the
moment! (in Wales at least)."
Brilliant job, Rhodri!
Congrats on being the first!
You have no idea how good it feels for me to see this!
