  • Fantastic modifications and weathering! Seeing the before and after really helps to see the transformation.

        • Fred,
          Great job of weathering ! The store looks like it's been around a long time. I think the for sale sign will be in place for years.

            • Fred,

              Outstanding !!

              The outdoor shots look fantastic, a great bit of model building.

              • Wowie,

                If I didn't see the base, I'd think I was look at a full size building! Great build and nice photos! Just amazing!

                • I saw the for sale sign.

                  How much?

                    • Thanks, Dave, Carl, Bob, Scott, David and Ray!!

                      My next project is small, short and sweet, but will give a hint as to what I am currently working on. A far cry from the Johnson store and will take much longer to complete.

                      • Back in August, still waiting on a hopeful forum revival, I decided I needed a firetruck. I found this at the local Walgreen's Pharmacy. A decent starting point, since it had the bubble light.

                        I only kept the cab end of it. And scratched the rest. Unfortunately, I didn't keep in progress shots. Except this.

                        That resulted in this:

                        My next "project" after this leads to an even shorter installment.
