Terrell,
Great Job !! This build is coming along at breakneck speed and looking fantastic.

I did get the first layout done for my version which is 1/24 scale, I'll post it later today. I
do not want to hijack your wonderful string so that will be the last I will post here. While I
plod along on my version I will continue to watch and enjoy your build. So you will get an idea of
size, 1/24 is twice your 1/48 and it works out that your 12 1/4 inch front wall becomes about 24
inches in mine.

Cheers,
Bob

Thanks, Guys !! Now I'm racing to stay ahead of Bob.

When it came time to doing the fancy trim above the entry opening I originally just intended to add some shapes, particularly on the two corners. So I shaped them from basswood, along with the centerpiece. On the centerpiece I added some sliced off styrene tubing for the round shapes and added a piece of tag holder, I don't know what else to call it, it's the little strap fastened to clothing or other products that hold the price tag on. It's the hangy down part. The spire.






But after attaching the three pieces I decided I needed to do more. So, I started by slicing off thin pieces of styrene tubing and hacking them up and placing them. Until I got something I thought would suffice. They are glued in place with Testors liquid cement.

Then I gave it a basecoat. As it turns out this is a wasted step really.

Here's my start on a 1/24 scale version of this build. This is the last I will post my
build here so you can enjoy Terrell's build. Should you want to also check out mine it is
here: starting on page 12.

This first piece is foam core with a sheet of .010 styrene glued on as a facing to make it
easier to complete the details with styrene strips.

I'll be watching Terrell's wonderful build too !!

Looks great Fred. Wish there was a shot of you making the "thing-a-ma-bobs" in the corners!

Terrell, you are doing a fantastic job with recreating this tenement building, from the Shorpy photograph!
It will be very interesting watching both you & Bob recreate this structure.
Keep up the great work!
