            Martin,

            Beautiful work! That is a lovely little building.

            How did you make the main sign, it looks engraved with gold leaf added.

              Martin,

              Something different from traction, rolling stock and MOW; and it turned out really nice. It looks like an actual store. I like the classic Victorian colors.

                Thanks, Mike. I actually have built a lot of buildings over the years; very few have shown up here; many are in print.... I'm looking forward to delivering it to it's owner as he is unaware of its final form.

                I spent a bit of time looking for a suitable tobacconist sign and finally found one that had the that aged engraved with gold leaf added look to it. After I resized that in Powerpoint to fit the space, I made an insert to overlay the other name, etc. in the same file and printed it out. That was cut out and glued to some 1/32" wood and framed up with some pre-painted angle around the edges.

                  Nice looking tobacco shop, Martin. What's the remaining 1%?

                      Probably could stand a little light weathering to drop the sheen down,

                          Martin,

                          It's very reminiscent of a building I saw in the mining town of Randsburg, California. It would fit right in a Western motif. Super job!
