Thanks Terrell, here's a start on the drugstore:

These walls are foamcore clad with thin styrene sheet


These are simply foamcore, the first floor floor and the first and second floor ceilings.



The remainder of construction will be all styrene sheets and strips.

Bob

Normally I would detail the walls while they were flat on the workbench but for some
reason I felt I could do a better job of it if I had the walls set up in proper position.
Here are the parts from the previous post glued up as a sub-base for my styrene work.

The backside of the original structure was blank because it was against the brick wall
of an adjacent building. Mine will be the same and this will also give me good access
for my usual interior drawer. I will not be modeling a backside for the drugstore.

Bob, looks like your Alessi's corner drugstore is off to a great start!

Bob,
Foam board...what a great modeling material!
The large storefront area will show the interior detail very nicely.

Thanks guys, your comments are appreciated.

Not much work done on the model because of too much outside work, getting ready for winter.
I did get the styrene sub-base for the turret installed.

Thanks Dave, I have just come in for lunch. I did study the siding and trim on this structure
and it is quite different from any structure I have ever built. With those bands all around it
will be a bear to paint but I have a scheme in mind that will save me masking and swearing, I
just have to apply the molding bands as I have it in my head right now. If only I didn't have
the 1:1 scale work to do.

Remember the ant and the grasshopper? Right now I'd rather be the grasshopper! I stepped away from a couple workbench models in order to devote time to the benchwork and track-laying. Now, after a week or so of 1:1 projects, I'm ready to sit at the bench again...but the 1:1 work isn't done! There's firewood to move and cover before the rain gets here, household chores that've been neglected, etc...

Looking forward to seeing how the different construction approach works out for you. So far it looks great!

Robert, you are not alone in 1:1 winter prep work and household chores. It is taking me away from, as Jerry, describes as "Fun Work" and it ... If only could get all finished...(LOL)

Thanks for your comments, Jerry, Galen, and Ted.

Here is the very start of applying trim pieces and it looks quite different already. Lots more
to go.
