What a great looking layout. Whatever you did to finalize the barge worked, it looks fantastic.

OK, a seven-story building in O Scale is indeed a project, but at least I am past the basic structure stage. Hope to add the roof and begin detailing the individual bricks soon, then add mortar lines. You can see the wood structure that holds all this together. Up to about five pounds now:)

Just ordered rooftop details and vents.

Looks good. Will you add any interior details behind any of the windows?

Not sure yet, Bill. I do plan to add lights (and light boxes). The scale does invite an interior, for sure.

Jim that's really coming along nicely.

Yes some interior would really look sharp.

Thanks,Jerry. In the past I have downloaded some photographs of building interiors and scaled them to size. I then mounted them on Gatorplas backing. I think I will experiment with that here as well to see how it looks. The building front is only 4" deep so I could mount the photos on the backboard easily enough and with the right lighting, it might work. I'll keep you posted.

Jim, I like the idea of photos in the windows. Do you have one of the Lucky Penny Band practicing?

That's our very own Tampa Jim on drums. 1-2-3-4- hit it.

Jim, if you mount the photos set back even 3/4 inch from the window and surround it with black sides the illusion of depth is greatly increased compared to just gluing it flush to the back of the "glass". You can detail a few windows that way and dirty up or paint out most of them and overall it will look very detailed and busy.

Frank, I'm just catching up with all of the fantastic work that you've been doing here!
My work at our cottage building a deck this summer has prevented me from commenting more often.
Keep up the great work that you always do!!

Oh, Frank, that is video is over ten years old and I am the only original band member. Here is a more current one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYdAALTr7jk&feature=youtu.be

It's a real pleasure looking in on this thread and seeing all the great modeling all of you are doing.
Thanks for sharing.


As you think, so will you be.

Seems an opportunity not to be missed, although most music venues I’ve seen have very little in the way of windows you can see through. So, get a sound unit and model the crowd in front and a super-cool drummer taking a break outside while the guitarist and chanteuse sing McCartney’s “Tug of War.”
