The priest and wedding party at the cathedral seen from the building's right side. This Kibri church (number 398760 in the Walthers catalogue) has been painted and mounted on a 1-inch thick piece of scenicked styrofoam, which permitted creating the grand steps in front of the building, which on my layout was to be called the Cathedral of St. George & Ruth and was to front on Cathedral Square. The building is approximately 12 x 7 1/2 x 14 inches (without the steps) and sits upon an irregularly shaped churchyard and cemetery approximately 19 inches on each side, which in turn sits upon a 24 x 24 inch piece of 2-inch thick styrofoam.
