        Michael nice clean work; great craftsmanship! This should look great in your new area. Nice to see someone modeling a gone-by-era. I'll have to follow along on this one.

            Looking very nice, Mike. Looks like it has a pretty good sized footprint.

              Nice work Michael, that is some company store, it is large enough to carry all their needs.

                Many thanks, Scott, Larry, Carl, Chuck and Louis.

                Yes, it is a large building, 40’ by 50’. The prototypes tend toward the large size, often compressed in model form. It’s going to be fairly prominent in my scene and I’m therefore trying to do a neat job of it.

                      I missed th wall rising. It's looking sharp Mike.

                          I’ve added supports for the roof and light-blocking walls and ceilings:

                            It looks like you have some good gluing surfaces as well as support for the sub-roof, Mike.

                              Bruce,
                              Yes, I like lots of bracing and glue surfaces, as you know. In my early days of scratchbuilding I was not so careful; it’s disappointing to complete a model and a corner of the roof lifts off. Additionally, many of my scratchbuilds are for our club and buildings need to be bulletproof, especially those on modules.

                              Mike

                                I tend to save the eave trim for last, after the roof is in place. That way I can hide any problems with the roof :-) :-) I like that ledge for the rafter bracing, I think I'll steal that idea.
