Wow, thanks for all the postings, Greg, Mario, Pete, Bill, David, Ray, Bruce and Mark.

Greg, I'll take you up on the round at Guffey's

Bruce, It turned out to be a fantastic string of really great interiors, thanks for letting me know.

Thanks Ted. I wanted to include you in this block of storefronts but I couldn't find your last name
and you didn't answer my email. Maybe next time.

As you might remember, I do not have a plan, drawing, photo, etc. in mind at this time so I
have no idea of what these buildings will look like. I simply cut some .030 styrene sheets to
approximate the size of each storefront (the heights may change).
It's FUN, they will be a surprise to me too.



Then I cut out some generic window and door openings to give me something to work with. I
see that I will need many doors and windows so I guess my next move will be to make styrene
masters for them and get with the mold making and resin casting.

I did make a styrene master for the window sash insert and four different outside window frames.
I can change the look of any window by choosing a different outside frame. Of course I can also
add to or modify any outside frame even further. I have made walls around these masters and mixed
and poured the RTV rubber to make the molds. I have to leave that alone for a while for it to cure.

Photos later.

Bob

Here are the two molds I made, the top one for the window sashes and the bottom one for four
different window frames. to the right are some of the resin castings. Top right is a frame loosely
set in place on a sash unit.

Great progress, Bob!

I actually walked by the layout room yesterday, so I'm "getting there...."

Bill, Ray, and Pete, thanks as always for your input.

I forgot to mention that since I have so many windows required for this project I used the
same master and made another mold for the sashes.

Hey Bob, that's a neat trick with the windows. The changable sash makes the windows different so easy.
