Each store has strips of wood glued to the inside to form a base for the roof section to set on.


There are three separate roof sections cut from masonite and covered with paper with shingles printed on it.


Each roof section has another piece of masonite  glued to it so the section won't warp.
The back edge on the in extra piece also slips over the inside edge on the back wall and keeps the roof section in place.
This section for the roof over the hardware store and has an overhanging piece over the two upstairs entry doors.
There are four "I" beams glued to the underside to support the overhang.


Here are the roof sections in place.
The concrete wall caps are also glued in place.


I printed out a photo of a hardware store interior and glued it to a piece of wood.


This sets inside the wall of the hardware store so it shows thru the windows.


I also printed out a photo of a restaurant counter area for the cafe.
This is set in a little farther to allow room for the store front.


These are table cloths that are printed out.


I purchased some O-scale tables and chairs from Plastruct for the cafe.
The table cloths were fitted to each table and then the tables and chairs were glued to the floor of the cafe store front section.


The cafe store front section is then assembled into the building.

Kinda disapointed Ray.

I don't see any salt and pepper shakers on those tables. :smilewink:




Looks awesome.

Don't go to any trouble for a group photo. I can wait. By then, you'll have more

done, and it'll be just that much more amazing. :thumbs:
