My second part of an O scale upscale scratch build of SierraWest's HO "Main Street" kit.

Pics of the fantastic HO Main Street Warehouse building that I will be finishing off the upscale for.

Thanks so much Rob, Mike, and Bruce,
it's great to have your continued support and following these re-visits to old builds and me 'finally' getting some things finished.

Recap pictures from 2011

Thatís one nice sag you built into the roof. I did that once and I donít know about you, but I found it to be a fair amount of work. You did a great job.

Karl, I'm interested in learning more about the Plexiglas walls and roof and why you have wood blocks glued inside the walls.

Thanks Mike, I like that it came out pretty subtle, it was fairly easy that way.

George the plexi glass is the mold for the plaster brick structure, the wood blocks are for the recesses for the windows and doors in the plaster.

Thanks Greg, great to hear from you.

Karl, Thanks for the re-cap photo's.
Your wood grain method is so realistic.
And interesting way of doing the brick walls.
Sure is "solid". did you use plaster or clay ?
And I assume you carved in the bricks by hand ?
As always, really nice work.

Thanks Rob,

I used plaster, I did put a chunk of scrap foam in the middle but it's still about as heavy as a regular house brick.

Yes I hand carved it, straight edge and an exacto.

Excellent brickwork, Karl. Both the carving and the coloration. It has the dry look of old brick.
