  • Bob,

    Thanks for providing the info on the EasyCutter! The facade does look great!

      Have a ways to go on the windows but here's what I have so far.

            Here's how the windows look now. I wanted to work on that brick area above the windows but I thought I had a spare
            sheet of embossed brick and I do not. I have ordered a cople of sheets and will have to wait for their arrival.

            In the meantime I will move on to that inset doorway.

            • Excellent Bob. What pieces make up your arched lintels?

              • Bob,

                Very well done. It's going to be a handsome building. I've seen many a Victorian store front that could have used your sense of architectural design.

                • Bob, it's poetry in styrene.

                  • Carl, Mike, and Greg, Thanks for your posts, much appreciated.

                    Carl, kind of hard to tell since I'm working out of my scrap box but it looks like this:

                    all .030 styrene strips, each given a curl over my finger, starting from the inside

                    strips number 134, 133, 134, 137, 138

                    I hope that helps.

                    Bob

                        • Scott and Ray, thanks for your posts.

                          Finished the backset doorway but it's kind of hard to show. Here it is:

                          • Bob, your storefront looks absolutely beautiful! I look forward to seeing the stained glass installed!

                            • Bob,

                              Since I don't work with styrene, there's no sense but to sit back and relax while watching the master perform.
                              As others have said, this will be a great looking Victorian structure when completed.
