The base is mounted for the hexagon room on the front.

The side walls are then put on.

The base for both of the dormers are mounted on the side.

And the side walls are put on for both dormers.

I set the doors and windows in place to give you an idea of what the finished building will look like.

Next is to start building the store front area that is on the side under the dormers.

Great project Ray, that has such an unusual shape to the footprint, so typical of buildings that sprang up in the space available in towns

and cities all over in the days before urban renewal and flattening whole neighborhoods.

Great project Ray, that has such an unusual shape to the footprint, so typical of buildings that sprang up in the space available in towns

and cities all over in the days before urban renewal and flattening whole neighborhoods.

This was listed on ebay for O-scale trains but I had never seen a roof like this on any of the O-scale buildings you can buy so I thought at first that it was actually HO-scale.

After getting some measurements from the seller and realizing that it was indeed O-scale, I went ahead and bid on it.

I still have no idea what the roof was used on.

 

I'm going to have it squeezed in between two streets or maybe an area where the road just starts to turn away from running along side a railroad track.

Interesting building Ray!! When I was a kid in Colfax Iowa, there was a simular building on a corner. The Heagonal Roof lined up with the street corner. It was built in the  mid to late1800's when the town was a resort built around the mineral springs trade. The building was torn down in the 70's and a generic bank was built on the site.

Working on gluing the store front windows together.

19-1.jpg


Starting to fit the store front together.

20-1.jpg


The area above the windows is filled in with balsa wood.

DCP_0002-1.jpg

The windows in the building will have frosted glass in them so you can't see in but the store front will have clear glass in them so you can see thru.
There will be items on display in the window areas so this whole store front is made so it can be removed for painting and decorating.

Nice work Ray. So, what is the store going to sell, and display in the store front?

Model railroad items? You could make a small store to display in the window.
