  • Pete, David, Greg, and Mike, thanks for your postings.

    David, The signs were made by printing them on white decal paper, plain old ink-jet printer.

    Greg, Charlie is right around the corner looking on.

              • Bob,

                The signs look great, especially the layering effect. The front is coming along nice. You are brave to just draw on the styrene and cut!

                  I added .080 strips to separate each area for detailing. First the left and right edges, then the first floor, the sign area,
                  the brick upper floor, and the top crown area. That makes it easier for me to work on and decide what detail I want.
                  The brick area is covered with a sheet of 1/24 scale embossed brick.


                  By the way, I see that cousin Larry showed up which makes for twice the supervising and one half the work being done.

                  • Bob,

                    Don't sell yourself short, your work is never boring. Although I don't have much to say, dosen't mean I am not impressed with your modeling.
                    Keep on truckin..nice job all around.

                        • Bob,

                          I might be sort of weird, but I am a scratchbuilder, and I find this part interesting. I like to see how a flat surface takes on the look of 3D.

                          You did an excellent job of cutting out the tops of the windows.

                          Mike

                              • Bob,

                                Watching others scratch build is not boring, especially on this site! Now, staring at a wood surface, that's boring!
