I really like that "Asphaltum" color, I use it a lot, including for painting freight cars that were originally painted "black" (e.g. wood hoppers.)

Thanks very much for your comments and compliments Bob, Jerry, Mike, Rich, George, Kevin, Dave G.,Fred and Dave E.!

Mike- The font was Times New Roman, but "Word Art" added a drop shadow to it, and changed the individual characters height and thickness a bit.

Rich- If I make it look easy- that's good-... but some of it certainly isn't easy!

Dave E.- Asphaltum" is a great color- kind of a deep brown, but not almost black.
Hope that makes sense for the folks who don't use these cheap acrylics...

The overall effect of the motor is very pleasing.

Carl,

I'm very impressed with the technique of how you're doing the buildings. Learning a lot here.

I'm still trying to figure out the effect of a "motor" on your buildings Frank is talking about. (INCOMING, running, ducking and hiding from Frank!!)

Carl,
Just catching up, looking good. Kudos on the mock-up and the stucco compound turned out very realistic.

Bernd- Thank you very much. Any questions, just ask.

Jim- Thanks for stopping by... Appreciate the compliment.

Dave E.- I guess you and Bernd settled that issue for Frank. An "auto-correct" issue I'm sure.

A very different and interesting build, Carl. The coloring and details on the wall are outstanding.

I installed the windows, and painted the Crafter and Stockley wall. The "stucco" is the look I was hoping for....I temporarily attached some chipboard "triangle stands" on the backs of these walls to get my height established, and so they could stay up on their own. They're just tack glued for easy removal. These won't be four walled buildings. This sign was built the same as Johnson Coal.



Together for pre-viz of the front elevations..Now need some frontage for Carter and Stockley.



Began the process on .05" chipboard, planning a recessed door. Not copying anything directly, jus adding layers of strip wood or card until satisfied. Using pictures of 19th century businesses for guidance.



Turning the corners towards the door....



Panels in lower portion are thin card....it took many hours to get this far....



Test fitting against the structure upper floors, a lot more work to do....and that would be the large first floor multi-pane windows. Ugh.



The roof area will include these two stucco gables. I built a wide shelf to support both in place.



till next time....those big front windows....

The layering on the ground floor looks great.
