      • Thanks, Scott, Bill, Mike, Pete & Ray. Kanthima recently got a close look at Tom Oxnard's structures and has tried adding more detail. Here's Strong St. with 113 Merrimack St. in place at the downhill corner.

        Strong St. houses with 113 Merrimack St.

        The front canopy is styrene with a newspaper roof, the awnings are styrene covered with real cloth with a fine pattern. I'll re-photograph 113 Merrimack after I get to its foundation.

          • The awnings give the houses that lived-in appearance.

            She's good with those details.

              • Thanks, Bruce, Mike, Pete. Until fairly recently, 113 Merrimac had a store on the ground floor; in 1957 it was Currier's Market. The canopy in front and a shed addition on the left side were removed later.

                • James,

                  Nice details on 113 Merrimack. Why did you use newspaper for the canopy?

                    The frame and subroof are styrene, I just find it easy to do roll roofing with newsprint, yellow glue and grimy black paint. I described this to Kanthima and showed her a couple of roofs I'd done that way. Then she did this one.
