Ha, I'm still trying to figure out why the exterior looks red, when dark gray and light gray were used? Was the A&I red ink, and not black'... ANdI might add, what a filthy building. I can't see any woman entering and waiting for acab'.....

Page 1&2 shows the red for the main structure.
The grey was used for the bare wood lean to work area wall.

Plenty of dirty women on that side of town looking for a ride...

Ha, I must be losing it. I read pages 1 and 2 but when I got to the end, those pages
never registered'....
If it is on the wrong side of town, it will have a few angels

Not really sure why this old build has been on my mind for the last week or so, but there it is, 10 years later.

Time didnt treat the old thing well, I finally found it in the laundry room under a bunch of boxes and quite a few other half finished builds, obviously a couple of boxes were too heavy for it... hahaha



So, time to get 'er finished off, nice, quick simple...
before putting it away I'd obviously painted the cobblestones back to grey for some reason, so, I masked that off ready for a repaint and then pinned and glued the two halves of the dio back together.



A quick and simple basic first level repaint of the street while the pins and glue were drying.



Sprinkled a first layer of dirt over the cracks in the base ready for a first new layer to go down once the paint has dried.



Now, while thats drying I'm gonna go find some basic details, dig my scenery supplies back out and try to find the corrugated roof for the work area and the concrete steps, I'm sure they're buried in the laundry room, somewhere...

Not a pretty sight in the laundry room... and definitly not as good to look at as my shelves here in the office...
Yes Jerry, I've still got a few more to work through, maybe some members will remember/recognise a few of the older builds stacked away here... ha
(this is just one shelf in there...)





I couldn't find the concrete steps, but I found the roof which was more important to me, I'll use my SierraWest jig to build some wooden steps later.



OK, next to find some details to fill it in... way too much empty space for my liking.
