    • Dave and Ray, thanks for your input.

      Here's the front with the woodwork painted. Near the end of the build I will treat it with some
      weathering powders and the difference between the brick and woodwork will be much less stark.

              • The "glass" (of course it's styrene, clear) has been installed in all windows and blinds added to the ones that require it.
                The pulls on the blinds were formed with brass wire.

                      • Mike and David, thanks for you posts.

                        I still have not decided what kind of business will be in this old building, I have thought of several. The one that is leading
                        the pack right now is an old 1940's hobby shop. I do have in my collection several real hobby kits from that era, before plastic
                        models. I could photograph them to make scale kit boxes. We did not have a hobby shop in my home town until late 1940,
                        Hobby items were available in the hobby section, next to the toy section, of one of the local department stores, so I am
                        not quite sure if a real hobby shop in early 1940 is historically correct. Remember, all the businesses I have modeled for this
                        forum have represented the fall of 1941, just before the US entered WW II. I have thought of and discarded several other kinds
                        of shops.

                          • Looks amazing! Bob.
                            I like the idea of an old time hobby shop, however an old toy store could do the job as well.
                            Looking forward to seeing the lights shine through the stained glass windows.

                              I did finish that rear window. I'll add some curtains when I do the same for the front windows.
