Bob, your front entrance pieces look very pleasing to the eyes.
I also like the colours that you have chosen for this building.

Greg, Thanks for your post. I keep hoping you will finish all your 1:1 scale construction and
start a new and interesting model railroad build!!

Bob,

Checking back in again... your work is always top notch and excellent. I wish to build at least half as good as you do! Keep it up.

One of the featured photos on Shorpy this morning shows a grocery store window, December
1940, displaying all kinds of the prices then. I love the fact that not mentioned , there is a
parked car almost blocking out the sign that says "NO PARKING, BUS STOP".

Bob, what a great shot'. Jack DeLano, certainly captured the times with his camera.
I like the weathering on, (looks like a 40 Ford) that must have splash up from Street Schmutz. The best is the prices. A buck sure went a long way'...

Bob, that is a cool photo!
Thanks for posting it Ted.
I love the glass shades inside of this store, hanging from the ceiling.
Also the retracted awning looks like a neat detail to try and model.
We've all done the awning fully deployed, but I don't think that I've ever seen it modelled it the retracted way.

Greg, you sure see a lot of details in the photo. I don't see the glass shades.... Building a closed awning looks like a challenge and fun to try'....................

Got a bit of work done on the back of the structure. The second floor window is the same
as all the others so I used one of my castings. Since the small window and the door are one-of-
a-kinds I made one each with styrene.

Ted, sure you see them, they look like white upside down Jell-O molds having no better way to describe them.
I think retracted awnings would be easier to model, just a little bit of folding required.

Can you see those lightshades now?

Oops! Bob, I should have known that a Master Model Maker like you, would have already done this retracted awning thing.
I guess I just forgot.
And it looks as cool as I thought it might.
I've really got to try this retracted awning look myself someday.

Greg, I thought you were talking about some type of window shade'... I would call those glass, light globes...(LOL).. They remind me of the old school house type globes..


Bob, your thread is receiving a lot of action, as usual. Hope you don't mind the intrusion by us fans'...
