Made progress on the building. Sorry about the poor quality indoor photos.





Door locks and hinges are Sculpty fired clay.



Interior is a web photo sized and glued in place.



Need to make emergency escape railing in back, add piping on second floor interior, add some stored, rusty pipe joints onto roof, add door latch and knob to front entrance, and add company name to building.

Final step will be a diorama displaying all three buildings in position and photos will be taken outside.

Thanks for patiently following along.

Excellent work Dave.
The walls have excellent weathering. I do like the various greys you've used.
Nice touch too, with some curtains hanging out of the windows. Not often done.
Looking forward to seeing them all put together.


Regards Rob

My current build.

David,
I love how Jim's hardware turned out!
The plumbing store is looking wonderfully weathered! I like how you are using photos for the interior.

Dave,

It takes imagination to scratchbuild, and once again you have shown how simple materials can make great looking models. Keep going!

Looks good, Dave, and I can't wait to see that final grouping, especially outdoors.

Every layout should have a good plumber around. You never know.

Dave, your plumbing shop is really shaping up nicely!
I look forward to seeing it soon with it's neighbours in the natural light outdoors.

Thank you Mike! Always appreciate your visits.

Rob, Thanks for the kind words. My wife said the curtains out the window look dumb...no women would allow her curtains to get torn and dirty.

Rick, thanks for stopping by and commenting on the build.

Scott, nice to read your comments...thank you!

Jim, comments are much appreciated. I find simple in scratchbuilding to be fun!

Bob and Greg, I'm picturing the assemblies looking good together and similar to the opening sketch...hope I'm right!

Carl and Frank...Thanks!

Thanks Ted, the building has seen better days! It will be located on the other side of the tracks on rundown Railroad Street. Thank you so much for the king=d comments.
