On the Bench 231a Dave Porter’s Mockingbird Lane

I thought you might like a pic of “Mockingbird Lane” which has been a “work in progress”. I wanted to paint it in its original colors, so I used various “color” pics taken during the early 60’s when the show was on the air. I found a wooden base at WalMart, stained it, and glued the nameplate and the model cars onto it with the house. Ive thought about adding trees and such, but think it may detract from the house. I like the results so far.

  1. I was suprised to learn this same house (model) is still being used. On Deserate Housewives it is one of the houses on Histeria Lane (Eddie Brit). I have been trying to find this model myself along with 108 Ocean Avenue. I have the house from Psycho and the Addams Family. Never done one before so I have two of each…just in case 🙂
