Thanks guys.

Galen, you are right, it does look tight, go back to page 32 and look at the original
structure, it's tight. Terrell is right, the door does open inward.

Mike and Rich, thanks for your comments.

Galen, the door does open inward but just for the fun of it I measured the door swing on
the model and it would easily open outward without hitting the column. I know it doesn't look it but it does.

Cheers,

Bob

PS: I have started working inside. The first wall I have tackled in the side towards the
viewer. It is all but impossible to see this wall but I did not want to leave it empty. I
decided to use another photo similar to the back wall to make shelving for this wall. Photos later.

Thanks for checking on the door. I go back and forth on whether a building should have a post or not - an easy choice if there's a prototype and you're sticking to it. The results you're achieving look terrific.

Thanks Carl and Galen, more for the inside.

I started with another photo from the web an selected what parts I wanted and printed to 1/24 scale.



Adding strip wood made this set of shelves. I did not make extra detail because it will be
almost impossible to see these through the store windows.



This is how it will be placed but again, at most, the near end will be seen,

Bob, looks like your medicine drawer is filling up quite nicely!
Beautiful work on that newest cabinet.

Dave and Greg, thanks for your comments.

To set the record straight, this is not a model of the drugstore I remember from back
in the 1930s and 40s, I started with the building which is based on photos from the web that I have had for years and then
decided to make it a drugstore. Our friend Mr. Alessi has let us use his name (thanks Carl).

I don't know exactly what I will end up making for the interior but I have in mind
certain sections that were favorites with me as child. In addition it was where my parents
bought prescriptions and over the counter drugs. I would like to include these:

1.a soda fountain at a time when "Line Rickys & Cherry Cokes were popular
2. a penny candy section
3. a magazine section. I will include some of the regular magazines and my favorites, the
model making and "how-to" type magazines I loved, and there were many of them back then.
I guess that's why I am a scratch builder.

Bob,

This all sounds great! the soda fountain needs the local "geek" soda jerk (the Good Kid) with the little paper hat, a couple of the local teen girls at one end of the counter enjoying their drinks, and the local James Dean thug-wannabe at the other end ordering.

I remember this vividly from my youth... the JD with the white tee-shirt, half a ton of pomade in his hair, the folded-up too-long jeans and the too-bored-for-words "cool" expression as he "ordered" his drink... " Ahhh... gimme a cherry coke."

Always wondered what happened to that kid....

Go for it!

Things are starting to come to life with product on those shelves. Sounds like it is going to be an establishment all of us over a certain age can vividly recall. As Pete, as remembered the James Dean, wanna be'. There was at least one in every town. I don't think they ever amounted to much'.. The girls, well, depending who had the set of wheels determined whom would be dancing with who at the school dance. OK, another egg cream for me, and a pack a Camels. A salute to the days of no age restrictions mostly, and no advice from Hollywood on how to vote....Let's get this place opened Bob'....

Thanks guys, but WHOA Pete and Ted, this is a LITTLE drug store, not the giant Emporium. I will try to fit most in though.

I did a first test run on some of the lighting. I can't place most of the LEDs until I have more of the interior completed.

Bob
