    Ray, welcome back.
    Detailed interior is sublime.
    The painting of the bricks and faded signs is also top notch.

    Ray,

    Outstanding, as usual for you. You have a way of making extremely detailed interiors and while this one is
    a bit too "modern" for me (being a 1940's type guy), I am a hardware store freak and you have nailed it!!

    Ray,

    Holy cow! Now that's some detailing! But unlike a picture, you really are looking into a store. Sooo cool!

    Nice cash register as well.

    I'm back, at last!

    When I started on the interior for this building, I thought that using "store-bought" tools to make window displays would save me a lot of time creating interior details. As it turned out, enough of the interior is visible through the doors that I still had to create a lot of details for the interior.

    I ended up getting bogged down, and set the project aside while I worked on other things. Anyway, I finally have some progress to show...

    I made a row of bins for nails and screws, with space above it to display other products. Only one end is detailed because the other end will not be visible:




    I built another rack full of various pipes:




    The store's interior is built in a box that slides into the main structure. I cut an opening the rear wall and turned it into a false doorway to another room, using a photo. I also began adding details to the rear wall:




    Here's a look at the interior as it nears completion:






    The last item I made for the interior is a cash register. I used some Lego pieces to form the basic shape, then added various bits of styrene to make it look like an old-fashioned cash register with a wooden case:








    Here's how the building looks with the interior installed and lighted:








    The only thing left to do is make some exterior light fixtures, mount them, and complete the wiring.

    looks good Ray. I like the wood finish on the back wall.

    And good pick up on those cheap toys, for the display. Should look excellent.

    If they had "for model railroads" written on them, they would cost three times as much.

    The removable interior sure paid off! Thanks for the hardware tip.


    Yeah, I build all my structures with removable interiors these days. It makes detailing the interior, or doing maintenance/repairs, a lot easier.
