Thanks Ray. I agree, a small town builder's supply warehouse is a rather plain structure. I'm hoping
that the loading docks and red roofs will liven it up a bit more.

The snow guards on the roof are hard to see here. I think they will show up when
photographed outdoors.

Bob, your builder's supply is looking like it will be open for business soon.
The red roof looks great, as does your foundation work.

Bob, The red roof looks good, and can just make out the snow guards, nice detail. I think having some plain structures balances the more elaborate, so T.A. Dimone & Co. looks just right.

Greg, Bill, and KP, thanks for your comments.
I'm working on the loading docks and their roofs right now. These are all flash photos done in the
shop, I hope to get some outside photos soon but the forecast is for RAIN.

KP - Neither, stones painted with Model Master enamel paint and then black acrylic ink with water run
between the stones.

Not too much done but I did get the "glass" in all the windows and built the loading docks. The
sun came out and I rushed to get the structure outside for a photograph and bam, it clouded
over again. Oh well, it least the lighting is better than the flash in my shop.

Bob, those newly added loading docks, really make this structure look like it's now ready for business.

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

Dave, they are diamond shaped (squares set up on a point) just to keep it simple. Circles would work
too. For more elaborate shapes I have in the past cut small areas from plastic model iron fencing.
(see vol.2 page 6). I also used the diamond shape back on the PA German barn.

Bob

Those last photos really show the snow guards well. A really nice detail. I also like the foundation and loading docks, Bob. Looking really nice.

That's a real coincidence Bob, I have red metal shingles on my house and garage'...So it's only fitting to have the same on my business'.
I also have real snow guards too'...You have done a suburb job on the lettering'..All looks great'...I love it'...
