Hi all!
This is my latest build that only took me two days to finish.
I had this HSM Silver plume store kit. (Same MFG as the fire station I built)



Really nice old craftsman kit with mostly printed cardboard and wood parts. Moulded plastic windows and corbels.
The walls had to be cut from sheet wood.
Roof material is surgical tape.
Real glass in the windows (which needs to be cleaned...) #128512;.






The smoke stack is made from a wood dowel.





Now some interior to make.

Michael,
That looks great! Details aren't overdone (ie the nailholes appear in scale). Colour and weathering are not overdone either. Looks very realistic!
Cheers,
Dave

Another great looking build Michael'. Did you use the same painting method as you did on the fire house. Is that wall paper inside or the print on the back of card stock? What are you going to put inside for a business? I know, (LOL) ,,,Too many questions'...

Looks really good, Michael. Maybe leave those windows as is, lots of big store windows look like that :)

Looks very good. Michael. I can't wait to see what you do with the interior that it begs.

Thanks! This one is painted the same way as the fire station.
The nail holes is made with a Trumpeter rivet tool.
Wallpapers are glued onto the wooden walls.
I haven't decided what business it's going to be. Any ideas?

One time when visiting Colorado, this was actually open, so I got to go inside. That's a nice build! I painted mine a red color that was too bright, one day I need to dig this back out and carefully repaint it to tone it down.

Michael,

Once again, great job on paint and weathering as well as the overall construction. I like the red you chose.

This is one of my favorite kits although I have never built one myself.

Mike

It really looks neglected and forlorn. In my thoughts it would look good with a few weeds and and old faded and pealed sign leaned up against the back door and left empty.

BE SAFE!!

I agree with all the above, well done; simple yet full of character.

Michael, you could do almost anything with this, a small hardware store would be my choice, but a barber shop, bar and café are a few more ideas. I mention hardware as there are a ton of details a hardware store could use and display outside as well. And most details are easily found on the web. Shapeways makes a lot of details like this too, 3-D printing. You should give them a look. Just Google Shapeways.

Michael,
Nice job on the build!!
Building would look good as a bakery with styrene shelves and counter,clay pastries and the baker standing outside catching some fresh air.

Actually, this is the bakery in Silver Plume: https://www.ulrichmodelkits.com/store/home/70-silver-plume-bakery.html

Most of the times I visited Silver Plume, the bakery was closed. Once it was open, so I stopped in and bought some stuff. I mentioned "Gee, first time I've been here when you were open." and the owner was not amused with my comment.

Yowsa! The bakery is still there, so is the C & S bobber caboose just down the street. We stayed in Silver Plume last fall.
