Looks great! I remember seeing those types of machines when I was a kid (and steering clear of them).

Greg, Bill, Pete, and Ray, thanks again for your comments.

I've spend a little time bouncing the coffee shop area around in my head. Time to stop
thinking and start working!!!!!

I also realized that I am going to need some benches for the waiting area. Don't know how
many but I know it will be more than one. I just finished the masters for a right end, a left
end, a seat and a back. The rubber is setting up right now and I should be able to start
casting later today or tomorrow morning.

Bob

Thanks Ted, keep the comments coming!!

While taking care of 1:1 scale work I managed to cast parts for several benches.

Thank you Ray, Bill, and Carl. Here's a couple of shots of some of the benches assembled and painted.





And, using a method similar to the ticket office, here's a shot of the skeleton of the
small coffee shop on which to build up detail.



Bob

The waiting room looks great! How did you do the black lines on the windows? Is it tape, paint, or something else?

Ray, First I printed them on overhead slide material but I did not like the result, quite
flimsy and I don't think as clear as can be.
Then I printed them on a clear laminating sheet, removed the backing, and applied that to heavier
clear plastic.

I'm not done with that double door yet, it needs a metal edging between the doors.

It just keeps getting better & better! Will you add one of those old pedestal ashtrays by the benches?

This is some very fine work!

The cushions seem to look a bit shiny - is that intentional to make them look like leather?

Could you please add some photos with a ruler because I have no idea what scale I'm looking at - which is just me saying again: Great work!

Best regards,

Frédéric

Thanks for your comments Bill and Frederic.

Bill - Yes, I found a photo of a sort of art deco one that I will use.

Frederic - Sorry, I guess I should say it more often. All my models are 1/24 scale (1/2 inch =
1 foot). Yes, I wanted just a bit of shine to the bench seats, they were not likely leather
but Naugahyde, a material manufactured to look like leather.

Just adding details to the coffee shop. The window openings match the two windows in the
front of the bus station.



Hard to see but they do have five different brands of cigars for sale.
