All your buildings are turning out awesome. What scale are you working on?

Ray,It is great to follow your builds. I had helped my dad build an outdoor set several years ago. I think his is G scale, basically a double oval with a fish pond and a mountain in the middle, a little stream coming down the mountain. We raised it up about 20" above the yard.

I have decided on a green for the color of the siding on the house.
Wasn't too sure about the color when I first printed it out but I think it looks good on the building.
The brick addition on the front is for the barbershop.

The barbershop has a photo of an old 40's barbershop interior in it.

I found a printable color strip for the barber pole.
This is glued onto a piece of plastic tube.

The caps for the ends of the barber pole are made out of wood and are turned down on the lathe.

A hole is drilled into the side of the cap and a small dowel is glued in place.
Here is one of the caps in prime.

Once everything is dry, the end caps are assembled and the barber pole is attached to the side of the building.

Wow! That's a good looking barber pole, Ray. That must be a pretty small lathe!
