Busy weekend preparing for Xmas. There has been a little time over for modeling though. I have finished the roof for the store and made a sign which will be hung out from the store front. I have had difficulties assembling the roof (yes I know its lasercut but I still had problems) but now it is shingled.


To avoid having a flat first row of shingles I glued on a paper strip.




The store before drybrushing and weathering.


The store sign made of printed paper, before mounting and weathering.

Happy modeling!
Håkan

Hi Håkan,your roof has the appearance of being completely trouble free to me,shingles all look nicely placed & weathered.
The only thing that stands out to me,is the lack of a chimney or stove pipe on it.
Your fancy new sign with the hats,also looks perfect for this business!

Thanks Carl!

Thanks Greg! The trouble is having a snug fit between the subroof and the walls. The chimney is on its way. My LP is just at this moment mixing the mortar

The design of this building already had a lot of personnality, but you sure added quite more with your own improvements, Håkan.

Thanks Frederic and Bryan. I must say that Wild West models are a joy to build. The only thing I would like to change is to have thinner doors and window frames as they feel today as 3-4" in scale. Also I would have liked to change the laser cut plywood stair structure to strip wood instead as the plywood is quite apparent despite a lot of sanding and painting.

Today I have finished the building with some weathering and a few figures to liven it up. It will be situated in my future seaport Innsmouth so for now it will go on the shelf.












I also tested the cameras depth of field on the photo above. I just love this camera! Great but unforgiving as it shows all flaws. I must get rid of the grass straws from the bushes on the right.

Now its off for doing some rock work on the layout.

The next project at the workbench is a Art Griffin coffin car that I'll see if I can build during Christmas.

Happy modeling!
Håkan

Nice finish up on the building.
Photo came out great of the train, you caught the rear area behind train and front of train perfectly.

The building came out just fine. Enjoyed the main line shot too.

It's only make-believe

Håkan,

The building turned out very well!

I am impressed with that depth of field test shot of your new Olympus camera.

Do you remember what settings you used?
If you don't, they should be stored in the jpg. file.

Hi Hakan. I really like the rooflines on the structure with one dormer on the right side and two on the left. Creates a very interesting structure. That last image of the layout looks fabulous!

Håkan, I've been away from my computer for the past month and I'm just getting caught up on your fabulous sleeping car and excellent store. You did an excellent job on painting the sleeper, as well as the other passenger cars. The weathering of the building is very convincing.

George
