Carl, Mike, Rich, and Greg, thanks for the nice comments.

I got the little foyer made. If you go straight in that door opens onto the stairs to the second
and third floors. There will be a directory to explain to visitors where to go.



If you turn to the right there is a door to the production floor of F.W.Terrell Mfg. This
is not generally open to the public.

Will the general public (and us) be able to see some of the process looking through that big window! (more nose prints) :)

Good question, Bill! This is gonna need two sets of nose prints, low and high. And finger marks. too.

Bob, I like where this is going, but I still think Mrs. Alessi may not see the humor in the machinery.

Bob, good thing OSHA wasn't around when F.W. Terrell was built. If the tooth picks ever lit up'. The two upper floors trying to evacuate would constrict the first level inhabitants from getting out... Other than this now a days safety hazard, it is a beautiful access and egress system....

Thanks guys.

Bill - yes, you will be ale to see the entire process and if you are nice to Mr. Terrell he
may allow you to visit inside.

Pete - just found out that the the plant engineer was in the submarine service and he has installed a
"silent running" switch.

Ted - on the forth side, the side you cannot see, there is a full three floor fire escape, not to worry.

Bob

Pete, Frank, and Fred, thanks for your comments.

I painted the storefront and added the "glass" and doorknobs. It will get a "dirty" wash later.



Pete, an update on the brick color paint. You will remember that I told you that the model
paint I use had been discontinued for years and I'm just about out. I went to Home Depot
to have a sample swatch analyzed so they could mix up a batch for me. I didn't have to
do that, one look at the BEHR paint sample cards showed a perfect match. It is called
Royal Liqueur. In my opinion BEHR paint is outstanding and I may have to thin it a bit
to get the streaking I start with, we'll see on the next brick structure model build.

Here's the even better part. They will mix you a "sample" container for $3.27 and that
is WAY more paint than any model paint you can buy. The label says 7.25 fl oz and the
cap says 8 fl oz. which makes the sample container at least equal to 14 1/2 bottles of
model paint.

Bob

Bob the store front looks good on the paint issue I agree with you not on the modeling side of it but I have used Behr paint for along time excellent paint.

Bob,

Exquisite. For now you need a “Watch this space” sign in Terrell’s.

Behr’s often scores high in Consumer Reports comparisons. Maybe they should add a model-painting criterion.

Bob that is looking great.

The paint seems like a real bargain looking forward on much you need to dilute it.

This is looking very good Bob'. And great news on the HD Bher paint. Good product, use every year on my deck. I used it in 2014 on my garage trim and still looks like a fresh coat. Should last a couple of life times on a model'...
