Last week I had another modeller give me Bar Mills 'Phineas Cutters sign shop' or 'The Backshop' Kit.







He decided that we should build it as The Backshop. I'll start construction in my next post

The standard 'what's in the box' shot:





The kit includes the main structure, a framed shed that can either be under construction or falling down (depending on your preferences)a couple short section of fencing, a bag or castings and some signs and posters for the structure and fences.

I started with the front wall.



The front wall is made of three sections plus a fourth alternate that will make a storefront section if you want. The three sections can be arranged any way you want so I decided to put the sections with the large bay doors together with the man-door section on the side. The two side walls are also interchangeable.




The assembled front wall with 1/16" posts added. I also added the corner posts to the back wall as well.




I added the bracing to the backs of the walls since I'm going to stain the fronts to begin with. After the glue dried I sprayed the backs with gray primer.





I finished off the work session with staining to fronts of the walls with Mirco-mark's gray stain. When this dries fully I'll start painting.

Looks interesting Glen. I built one a while back and called it "Leno's Garage". Love to see what you do here.

Thanks Tony.

I realized that I made a mistake with the front wall.





I had accidentally used the storefront wall (#9) instead of the alternate wall (#9a) If you are going to build the backshop version the #9a wall is for that. I was able to cut the wall apart and insert the right piece. I'm just waiting for the glue to set up before I stain the new section to match

I fixed and painted the front wall, along with the others




After the stain dried, I dry-brushed the walls with acrylic 'Vintage White'. Later I'll paint the lower 1/4 of the front wall in a light green.

Thanks for following along guys.

I pulled out my airbrush and painted the green on the front wall




I kept the paint volume low so the lower paint and stain levels would show through a bit. I also painted the windows and door parts.





After that I started installing window and doors. Pretty straight forward, I had to do a bit of touch-up around the edges and I replaced the acetate that comes with the kit with a liquid glass called Gallery Glass.

Glen,

Good recovery. I like the weathered look of the white and faded look of the green.

I think the structure would have many uses. In fact it would look great on our club layout. Hmm . . .

Mike

Thanks Mike.
I finished off the front wall




all the doors and windows have the peel and stick adhesive on them. I still used a bit of aileen's tacky glue on them to make sure they stay put. I left the two larger doors off for now. They'll be positioned open later.

I pretty much finished the main building today. Starting with getting the walls up.





There's also a bit of trim to go at the top of the walls as well.










While I was at it I cut a sheet of styrene to serve as the floor. I'm leaving a couple doors open for interior detailing so I figure there should be something there. I sprayed it with Paver's Gray from Krylon, a nice light concrete color.




I sprayed the tarpaper roofing with Krylon gray primer. The roof has an access hatch included with a surround and hatch.




I glued the roof and the front open doors on. I still have to add the door handles.



The one side comes with a sliding door. I positioned this open as well.



I left the roof access hatch off to the side and left a ladder sticking out of the opening. There are two of these ladders included in the details.



Finally I assembled and painted the small framed shed. I painted it in light gray with an A&I wash. I also primered all of the cast metal details so I can start had painting all of them.
