I'm now working on the final building for "up on the hill". This area is supposed to be the back edge of Tellico Gap, a small rural town here in the southern mountains so I don't want to get it too built up. This building would be the back of part of mainstreet.





I "painted" the building my usual way by scrubbing on chalks. The colors are based on a real building here except I toned down the green part as the real one will blind you! . Still got to do signage and of course roof details and such. Here is a shot of about where it will go on the layout. I had considered just making this building a flat but I want to light it also so I decided on a semi-flat!

Mike,
Both Drew's building and that row of 'Main Street' stores both look good. I can't wait to see some pictures of 'the hill' with everything installed.

Looks good Tyson.
Starting to look like a real town now.

How big are the small rural towns over your way as that is way more buildings than I see in the small towns that make up Dade County Georgia except for the county seat of Trenton.

John most of these towns in the early 60's were around 1,000 to 5,000 people. The biggest difference is the mills or factory were usually on the edge of town. Being as I don't have room for the edge of town I had to relocate the furniture factory a little closer. When I moved here the pop. was 900 in town and 8,000 in the county. The main employers were Singer (furniture) employing up to 200 and Tuckaseegee (textile mill) employing up to 400. Main street was actually two streets forming an L shape and most of the buildings being 2 and 3 story brick. The whole town though was probably less then 1 square mile. But is stretched out for about 2 miles along the river. 2 miles in N scale is about 67 feet hence some selective compression.

A very interesting choice of colors for the row of brick buildings, adding quite a bit of character to the structures. Looking forward to the next set of construction photos.

Other than the lighting I'm pretty much done with this. I know, what took me so long! .

That scene has a lot of promise! I assume you'll be putting in roads and other details, correct? You might want to consider a tall block wall to separate the industrial from the commercial.

Hi David, yes after I get the lighting done and the building installed it is on to ground covers, road, parking area, trees and what have you. Thanks for the idea on the wall but we don't have anything like that around here (the area I'm modeling) and once the road/parking area is in there wouldn't be room for it.

Tyson, the whole scene (in the 3rd photo) is really nice. I like the arrangement as well as the use of perspective.
