Starting off with a printed copy of the paper model and converting that to a wood and other bits projects.

It's very reminiscent of a building I saw in the mining town of Randsburg, California. It would fit right in a Western motif. Super job!

Wonderful build with an impressive sign!
mwbpequod Posted - 03/29/2021 : 08:13:38 AM

Very nice!

Thanks, Dave!

[quote]Nice looking tobacco shop, Martin. What's the remaining 1%?

Probably could stand a little light weathering to drop the sheen down,

Very nice!

Thanks all!


Something different from traction, rolling stock and MOW; and it turned out really nice. It looks like an actual store. I like the classic Victorian colors.


Thanks, Mike. I actually have built a lot of buildings over the years; very few have shown up here; many are in print.... I'm looking forward to delivering it to it's owner as he is unaware of its final form.

How did you make the main sign, it looks engraved with gold leaf added.

I spent a bit of time looking for a suitable tobacconist sign and finally found one that had the that aged engraved with gold leaf added look to it. After I resized that in Powerpoint to fit the space, I made an insert to overlay the other name, etc. in the same file and printed it out. That was cut out and glued to some 1/32" wood and framed up with some pre-painted angle around the edges.

Looks very good to me.

Calling it 99% done now:

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/21/2021 : 10:39:05 AM
Great job, Martin.
mwbpequod Posted - 03/21/2021 : 10:32:18 AM
Inside - no, not me. I'll leave that to its next owner to customize once I get the signage installed and hopefully hand it off next month.

Makes 3 structures now to hand off to new owners....and only 1 of which has been seen here.
Dutchman Posted - 03/21/2021 : 09:52:01 AM
Nice, Martin. Putting something inside Jack's?
mwbpequod Posted - 03/21/2021 : 09:28:31 AM
Coming into the home stretch now....
