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.

 

 

 

Yeah but what would you put in the window of that store. ? :D

The window "glass" is cut from a sheet of thin clear plastic.

This store is going to be a radio sales and repair shop.

I made up a roof that fills in between the lower part of the upstairs dormers and extends out over the store front.
The door is set in place and the wall is filled in around it.
I used some strips of wood and built up a trim line that runs across the top of the windows.

Both the roof and the trim line wrap around the corner of the store front.

Here you can see the trim line detail a little better.

Seeing that entrance door in there now, changes the whole look of it.

Scaled, there would be 10ft ceilings?

The windows, doors and store front are painted.

The roof section is also painted.

I use the computer to make up patterns for bricks, siding and roofing then they are printed out on paper.

31-3.jpg


I'm starting to put the brick on the building.

32-2.jpg


The base for the outside stairs is painted.
At the top of the landing, the brick is wrapped over the top and brought down on the inside of the wall.

The back and one side is finished.

Nice work. I used to do some HO scale models years ago. My FIL had a large HO setup.

That's coming along nicely.

How do you secure the brick, without it wrinkling?

The vertical siding is put on the dormers.
I copied some photos off the internet of old radio store interiors and put them on the side where the store front goes.

The roof material is glued to the store front section.

I haven't put the glass or the display radios in the windows yet but this gives you an idea of how it will look with the store front attached.
