  • Scott, Dave, Greg, Bill, Mike, and Ray, thanks for your input, much appreciated.

    Scott, it IS 3D, that styrene sheet has random brick detail embossed into it.

    I cut rectangular holes into the back corners of the roof for a future build of the drainage ducts.

    About two years ago a local craft shop went out of business and I bought most of their stripwood. It was mostly basswood
    but there was some balsa strips included. I do not usually use balsa wood in my modeling but here I found a use for it.
    I used strips to build up the sections of coming atop the walls and when the glue dried it was easy to sand the balsa into
    proper shape. Two coats of clear gloss and sanding made it ready for paint.

    • Bob,

      Roof and combing look good.

      How did you apply the the advertisement to the styrene brick? I think I missed something.

      • Scott,

        The two sides are different. The side with the signs is just a blown up photo of a real building,
        the side with the bricks is a sheet of embossed styrene with bricks already printed on it.
        I will have smaller signs over that brick surface but I will make decals to do that.

        • Bob,

          My apology for not seeing this build until now. I guess I should be more aware of threads vs research. I will be following along.

              • Rich, Scott, and Jerry, thanks for your posts.

                Here's the model with the top part painted green. That will not be the final color, it will receive several washes but since the store
                front will be the same color I will hold the washes until I have that painted and I must also make the window.

                • I raided my scraps box for styrene strips and made this one window for the brick side.

                          Here's the window popped into place. I actually built the bare frame right in the hole in the wall. When that dried, I removed it
                          and then added all the other detail and then painted it before setting it back in place. That way I was sure it would fit. Clear glazing
                          will be done later.

                          I have been playing with old signs for the brick side of the structure. I have collected signs for many years and now I am choosing
                          and not choosing signs and varying their sizes and printing them on paper. I cut these out and arrange them on the model. When I
                          am happy with them I will make them as decals and apply them to the wall.
