Hello folks,

I've finally finished the corner drugstore. It's pretty big and hard to pick up without snapping something off so I want to get it down on a piece of gator board and then put all the buildings on one big chunk of gator.

I think I'm going to build the building being demolished on the right side of Earl's diorama after I finish the wooden deck bridge for behind the buildings. I figured the track would look kind of neat with some elevation with an old wooden deck bridge and road underneath.

So, back down to the cave to work on the stinking bridge!

Hey, postalkarl, if you're out there, recognize the billboard?

Some photos...

Cheers,

Karl O.
Berkley, MI

Beautiful work Karl. Are the porch posts and railing scratch, or castings? Thanks.

Karl,

Great designs, construction and finish throughout. Really captures the look of grubby decrepit urban decline. I like the three wall materials used for the corner shop, and all the stairs, balconies and shades.

Fantastic Karl,
Love your work!
Any chance you can put Ed's exploded head back together?

Karl, I am REALLY impressed with your work, outstanding. Because of some personal work I
need to see to I do not think I will get much if any model building time between now and the end
of the year. However, I am thinking very seriously of building a structure taking most of
my design copying details from your work, I hope you don't mind. I will of course be using my
favorite material (styrene) and in my favorite scale (1/24).

Thanks for the inspiration.

Bob
