I did not realize no photography was allowed, so i refrained from picture taking quickly. But since these two color pictures were copyrighted by myself i wanted to give you a tiny glimpse of  the most impressive display the Springfield Abe Lincoln Presidential library has put up nad it will run through march as shown on the flyer above.
Seeing large pics of the model i built was really an honor!


Chery MIne Display will be at IVCC College in Oglesby IL until decemeber 2010
