I installed the metal roof panels. The laser cut guide lines on the roof really help with lining them up.

The first course is laid down with the edges overlaping a bit.


Then the second course is laid down. I added weight to the second corse but a few edges didn't lay flat so I added some more glue and taped them down while the glue set


The other side went down nice and flat. I put an athearn blue box filled with metal parts on the panels while the glue set to make sure nothing lifted
I think the coloring came out pretty good.

Thanks. I wasn't sure about them until I saw them all together installed on the roof. I've got just a few more parts to go on the main building then it's on to the detail parts.

I've finally finished the kit and all the detail parts. Here's the finished product








The interior, second floor view block

First floot interior

Twin outhouses, complete with toilet paper

Detail parts. They're a mix of Cast resin and white metal


A pair of chairs, both laser cut wood and easily the most fragile parts of the whole kit


Finally The gas pump, a mix of white metal and plastic parts

That is a really nice general store, thank you for sharing your build with us.
I have put together a few of the kits with the peel and stick windows, doors etc and I'm not sure if I like them or not yet. I wonder how long the sticky stuff will stay sticky and will the windows fall out or the doors fall off after a while....

Great work on the store, Glen.
Angela, several manufacturers say the glueing power reinforces itself over time, so maybe we can be confident...

I agree with Freeric on this one. My instructions told me that they used an industrial adhiesive and it will get stronger the longer it sets. I had to remove a part after I put it in and it was a real bear to remove.

Hi Glen:

Great job on the store so far. Looks like it gets an interior.

Thanks Karl. It does give you the opportunity to install an interior but since this build was for another modeller I built it box-stock. The kit did not come with any interior details. It will be up to him to put the interior in if he wants.
