  • Bob,

    I really like the 3d detail in your store front, and the doorway is the piece de resistance.

    • Bob,

      That recessed door is a looker! I really like the panel details in the entrance!

      • When painted no one will believe it's just strips and bits of styrene.

        • Bob... This is turning into a work of art!

          I have learned so much from you on this one build... Thank you for sharing your talents.

          • Greg, Rich, Jerry, Mike, Scott, Bill, and Pete, thanks for your posts, much appreciated.

            All I have left on this front is some fancy brickwork. When I started the build I thought I had some spare
            embossed brick sheets but it turns out that I didn't. I have ordered some but it has not yet arrived.

            It's now the weekend and I will be spending my free time watching football so the build will take a break.

            Bob

              • Are you thinking of casting a mold for it when you are done? Have you done so in the past?

                • Dave, thanks for the WOW

                  David, no, I am not thinking of reproducing it but I have done so many times in the past.

                  • While waiting for the brick sheets to come in I did a little test. These are not the real
                    stained glass windows but the paper versions. I'm glad I did this test because I see that
                    the ones above the show window need some adjustments (The JOYS of scratchbuilding)

                    • Strike that last post. There are so many copies of those windows around here and I
                      must have picked up the wrong ones, the real ones fit just fine. I'm glad I found that
                      out before I made the changes.

                      • The real windows are going to look great there, Bob. Glad you also found the ones that fit.

                        • Bob, even the wrong sized stained glass windows look good, so I'm positive the right sized ones will look even better!
                          Especially when they have some light behind them.

                          • Amazing work Bob. I respect and admire your abilities, and more importantly, your willingness to share the process.

                            Thank you.
