Thanks Pete.

Well, I am just about done with the bus station interior. I have some luggage and some figures
to paint and since there will be a lot of "waiting for the paint to dry" time I will move
back to that storefront. If anyone noticed that I have been avoiding that area, no one mentioned it.

It needs a little story. Remember the old business adage about success, which boils down
to "location, location, location". This storefront is down the alley behind the bus
station. Three businesses tried this location and all failed but every now and then a new
business makes a go of it. Remember when a new business would move into a vacant out of the way
storefront and somehow do well.

This is just an example:




Our new tennant seems to be doing quite well.

Bob, the magazine rack & newspapers look way better than any of my ideas that I threw at you for that empty space.
And It`s great to see that Mr.Gill is going to get a special place, and a new line of work in the shop behind this bus station.
No doubt he will invent some new & revolutionary way of tattooing his customers.

Bob, Your previous post slid in just ahead of mine, didn't see it until now! Yipes! I'm honored to lend name to one of your fantastic models!!! Or are you just giving me a subtle needle for that awful pun over on Greg's Doan Towers thread? :)

Bob, filling that space with the magazine rack is excellent. I do appreciate all the detailed SBS you've done, because as you said, we are lucky to have the detailed views, that won't be as visible once completed.

Looking forward to seeing the Tattoo parlour.
Here's one I did with an N scale DPM kit.

Bill, Dallas, Greg, and Rob, thanks for your comments.

Greg, if having a Bill Gill tattoo parlor doesn't give you a BIG opening to get back at Bill for his
puns, nothing ever will.

Rob, nice job on your tattoo parlor. Just for fun, what are the dimensions of your N scale shop
compared to my 1/2 scale shopfront which is 8 1/2" x 8 1/4".

Unlike the bus station where I still need to do the figures, the tattoo parlor is being done in the
opposite direction, the figures were done first. The tattooer (Bill Gill???) was a telegraph
operator with an antique tattoo pen carved in his hand and the sailor being tattooed was a
seated big guy in a tee shirt. I ground off the sleeves, neckline, and waist of the tee shirt
and added the chain of his dog tags.

Bob, there isn't enough ink to write compliments for your figures and chairs! Fantastically fun!

Bob, My N scale model was only 1 1/2" w x 2 1/4" h so very small. That's why no interior detail. Just some window posters.

Yours being so large should come up very nice.
The figures and chairs look great.

A tattoo parlor! Perfect choice to go next to a bus station! Wonderful work on those figures. I'm assuming the tattoos on the customer were decals?

BTW, the newspaper stand and magazine shelves turned out great!

Bill, Rob, Ray, thanks again for your comments.

Rob, I used to model in HO scale and I have fun comparing some of my HO models to my 1/24 scale
models of same subjects but your N scale shop is fantastic.

Ray, yes, the tattoos are home made decals.

I'm working on the interior of that shop now and hope to have some photos soon.

Bob

Thanks Bruce, I appreciate your comment.

I still have many details to make but here's how the shop stands at the end of the day today.

Wonder if that sailor gets a tattoo at every port? Although the one he's getting now looks like starboard :)
Another neat unique boutique, Bob
Hey, it just occurred to me that you asked who the tattooer was, what about the sailor...could he be a Barnacle Bob imposter!?
