  • Floor looks good, Larry. The color and texture looks a lot like some of the floors in our old house. Our floors also creak.

    • Michael thank you. I used to like to hear the floor at the Hardware Store when I walked on it.
      Just sort of reminded me of "an old-time" store.

          • You are moving way too fast for me Larry. Can't believe I'm, a few pages back already. Your card stock/paper modeling is fantastic looking. I too would of never thought that picture was paper. You make it look some nice. It brings a new meaning to card stock structures.

            • Louis thank you so much. I like to get in at least 1 hour/day at the bench;
              but with the holidays coming that's probably not going to happen. I've had
              the Pawn Shop file for quite some time with the idea of using the front and
              combine it with a scratch built wood structure and the Store seemed like
              a great chance to do so.

              • Nice looking floor! Hopefully the customers will get some dirt on it!!

                • Jerry thanks. I did go over the floor with a light coat of A&I but since it's
                  the inside of a store I didn't want it too dirty; after all it's the Company
                  Store and they have a reputation to uphold.

                  • Larry,

                    I'm floored! No, the stores floored. Nice floor. I like the color too.

                    • Work continues on the layout; so here's what I've been up to:

                      I was going to do a shed style roof but after I laid it out I wasn't happy with the look or proportions. So I decided to do this
                      instead.

                      This looks much better and yes I'll figure out the rafters.....maybe I can ask Jerry. So the two sides and back are framed and
                      waiting for siding. On this build I going to use scale 1x10's applied horizontally inside and out to change things up a bit from
                      my previous builds.

                      Here are the 1x10's which have been "grained" by dragging my razor saw across the faces. Then I decided to try a new technique, well
                      new to me, that Brett from Sierra Models uses. After the graining was done I scraped green chalk to create a fine dust then worked it
                      into the wood with a soft brush and clear alcohol. Repeated the process using a burnt umber then a grey chalk. After blending it all
                      in I think I rather like the look and it seems to go with the "greenish" iron storefront. I also like the variation in color.

                      Since this is my first time using this technique, any comments/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Until next time, thanks
                      for looking.

                        • Philip thank you. Trying to learn something new, you never know how it's
                          going to turn out. I may however may ease up on the burnt umber just a
                          tad.

                            • On the right. I think it's a shadow, rather than color that I'm seeing. Thinking if those are vertical boards, the bottoms might be a little more green with mold. Moreso than the tops by the rafters would be.

                              • Larry,
                                Framing looks good. I like the 1x10 color, thanks for sharing the technique.
