  • Bob, great to see that you have decided to model an old time hobby shop! I sure do miss having them around.
    I look forward to see what gems you will stock it with!

    • Very nice! I like the choice of an old-time hobby shop.

      • Mike, Scott, Bill, Greg, and Ray, thanks for your comments.

        I have had to back off on the model building for a while but I am tinkering with stock for the hobby store,
        just a short break coming up.

        • I did find a few minutes to tinker with the model. I finished the sidewalk and I gave it a thin
          coat of light gray Pan Pastels to take away the "just painted" look.

            • Bob,

              The sidewalk is a nice enhancement.

                • Bob, now the word is out about this being an old time Hobby Shop, I'm amazed you don't have a line of eager customers standing on your newly installed sidewalk, just waiting to get in.

                  • Carl, Mike, Fred, and Greg, thanks for your comments.

                    Carl - without the sidewalk it is 6 1/2 x 13 1/2 x 12 1/2 high.

                    Greg - I almost got a photo of Charlie and Larry but I missed it, maybe next time.

                    • Bob,
                      Side walk looks great! I like the granite curb detail!

                          Bob, if you look real close at the reflection in the store window, you can actually see Charlie & Larry laying on their backs.
                          Perhaps they have been floored by the beauty of this store, or they are now camping out on the street waiting for this new Hobby Shop to open.

                          • Eagle Eye Greg, thanks for your post.

                            Quiet, but I think you have found the ghost of Charlie's Uncle, Ebenezer.

                              Sorry, I have two different kits here but they both are correct. These are actual old kits and while they might look big as models
                              they are the correct size. The real box is almost 20m inches long to accommodate a molded hull (more on that later) that
                              is almost 19 inches long. One has a picture of the model on the box top and the other just has the band name.

                              Here is the actual kit, my printed boxes, cut our and folded, and glued together.

                              Many more to go........ and many smaller ones.
