          Took a break from modeling to do the videos from my Nevada trip. Now I finally have some modeling to report...

          I wanted the second story of this building to be a silversmithing workshop. I only had one very tiny photo of my brother's workshop, which gave me a rough idea of how it should look. I also Googled some photos of similar workshops which helped me get a better idea of the details.

          I started by making a bunch of tools and other items to hang on a simulated pegboard:




          I also modeled a slab cutter, which is a special saw for cutting raw stone into slices. The largest part was made from a block of Sintra PVC, sanded to shape and skinned with .020" styrene:










          Another machine I modeled is a combination trim saw and cabochon grinder/polisher:






          I made a lot of other items, installed them in the room, and added lights:






          A couple shots looking into the room from outside the window:






          The last thing I did was make a pair of exterior lamps to light up the store front. After finishing the wiring the building was complete and I installed it on the layout:














          I had also wanted to make a lighted "Jewelry" sign to the exterior, but my idea for that didn't work out. I may try a different way to make that work at some later date. And eventually I want to make scale figures of my brother and his wife to occupy the building.

            OUTSTANDING !! Which is the "norm" for you. These photos could be of a real shop.

            Fantastic to have you back at the model RR.

                Fantastic model. Peeking through the window reminds me of going through a museum.

                    • Ray, that looks incredible!

                      I know who I'm going to turn to, when I need a tiny tool.
