Jerry, Bill, Greg, Mike and Dave, thanks for posting.

Got a few small things done. I framed all windows, front and back, painted and installed
the shipment doors, and added the downspout and the gang of three electric meters.

I got some "glass", shades, and signs in the windows. Next comes the strore front and
Charlie is here again supervising construction. There are of course many ways
to tackle this job but my favorite way is to cut a piece of sheet styrofoan to fit the
opening. Then I figure out where I want the doors and windows, in this case, one door and
one window. Next I draw in the vertical columns an cut out the spaces. Once that's done I can buildup the
columns and fill in all the woodwork with styrene strips and pieces, mostly from my
scrap box.

Bob,
The F. W. Terrell signs look great on the brick. How did you make them and what are they printed on?
The gang of three electric meters really are an eye catcher. Nice Work!!

Hi Dave, I didn't recognize you. I'm so used to your old avatar. The decals were printed
on a regular ink-jet printer, nothing special. I designed the white letters on a
black rectangle and then printed the decal on white decal paper. As you know, without an
ALPS printed there is no "white", white letters are really clear letting the paper
show through as white letters. The same holds true on white decal paper.

Bob

PS. Did you get am email from me about a week ago about your old model barrel factory?

Thanks Bob for the sign info,

I changed the avatar to my RR logo. Since I moved from the dairy state I figured it was time to get rid of the cow!

No email about the barrel factory. Sorry, I never updated my email address. I just updated the profile page. Can you resend?

Dave

Here the sign area at the top and the three columns define the design. Now it is just a
matter of adding small bits of styrene strips to fill out the details.

BTW that doorway is not the doorway to Terrell's, it leads to a little foyer that
has two doors, the one to the right goes in to Terrell's and the one straight ahead opens
to a set of stairs to the upper floors.

So you're saying as soon as someone enters the building they have to PICK where to go? :)
Nice progress on the storefront, Bob.

Yes Bill, "Behind this door is......."

Mario, Real nice to hear from you again and yes, it is easy.

Here's the front with a little more detail. I want to make the little foyer with 2 doors before I paint it.

Bob, very nice looking front to this building.
Perhaps the front door should have a brass toothpick as a door pull.
