Hi Matt,
Browsing the sites (just remove the loast bit and you'll wee the home page!), I found that the first 2 didn't have any pictures of the inside of a belltower.
The 3rd one though does:

No 4 works as you already said, while no 5 is a site dedicated to churchbells:

Has anyone else tried accessing the above links? I don't know if it's only my computer but all except the fourth seem to be dead-links. I do like "From Whom the Bell Tolls," I may use it.

There is a work of classic literature by Ernest Hemingway entitled "For Whom The Bell Tolls".

I appreciate all the input, and thank you for the links I haven't had a chance to check them out yet, but I'm working on it. Does that title "From Whom the Bells Toll" have any historical significance, I mean did that come from anything? I like the title. Please, keep them coming :-)

There should ba something else in th bell-tower : stairs or ladders !
Also, you should check the system employed to move the bells and make them ring.

Good luck !

The bell town sniper was the original idea Toni (Envar) set out with. Great to see that there will be another one !
The inside of a bell tower basically contains only one thing : bells. (and a platform that allows you to get near them for repair work etc... That can't be all that hard to make, at least something that looks good when you see it through the opening where the sniper is.

I like the "ring of death" title !

I don't know if that title will stick, I didn't have one until I was gonna write this. I'd like to have my figure inside a church bell tower. I was thinking of having a section of the church on the (very small) base connected with the bell tower, I know I'll probably need to expose the inside of the church but I'm trying not to do that with the tower itself because I don't know what the inside of a bell tower looks like.

The figure will likely be crouched directly under the bell looking down his barrel onto the town below. I'm still in the idea stage, but I'd like to run with this one. Does anybody have any comments of suggestions?
