Thanks Mike.

Here's the basis for that nice storefront cut from .020 styrene sheet. On these I will
build, from left to right, the side show window, the left set back, the door frame,
the right setback and the end show window (which is a little bigger that the other).

I printed out some marble and glued it to the base to represent a marble entrance.
(seen in the previous photo)

Thanks Terrell.

The detail was made with styrene strips and I have yet to make the main door before I paint
these and install them.

Bob,

You have just enough unevenness to the clapboards to make them look like a masterwork of early 20th century carpentry. I can see the locals cutting the timber, running the logs through the mills, lopping off the clapboards and nailing them up. Pride of workmanship, and doing the best they could with what they had, well prior to CNC and Laser precision.

The colors, mixed on site by a Master Painter, work really well to finish off the images in my mind....

I've seen that building! Can't remember exactly where, but I Know I've seen it!

Elegant! Bravo!

Terry, Rich. Carl, Dave. and Pete, thanks much for your comments. I really appreciate them.

Pete, I thought those clapboards were perfectly straight. Thanks for supplying me
with an excuse but to be truthful, what you are witnessing is the degrading of my hand-
eye coordination as I age. I will soon have to stop posting to forums before I really
embarrass myself.

Before I paint those sections of store front I am working on that column as it uses the
same colors. Wow, that little thing is a project in itself.

Bob

Robert, you are making very nice progress. I don't believe for a moment, any such hand, eye, coordination.. That is how those clapboards are supposed to look'...Beautiful work as always from you Bob'...
