    Helen needs to start eating Jolly Green Giant brand. I have to admit, Helen is a foxy looking gal.

      Ken,

      It takes a woman to put everything in perspective.

        Good one George :up:

        I had a little time to work on the doors. Still need to dirty up the windows and add some hardware. Wanted to break up the green a little bit.



        While working on them I realized I still need a sign for the place. I really don't want a printed one so I'm going to try to paint it onto the bricks.

        And I thought I was past the "I can't goof this one up" stage.

          Ken, the doors look great but they don't look like the original version with the cardboard behind it will there be more than one set of doors? Really like the look of the lintel, very well done, Pat

            Ken, what was your method of staining the wood for the doors?

              Ken, those are some great looking doors! Good luck with the sign. How about using dry transfers?

                The grain and weathering on the doors is right on. Just a few details and their near perfect.

                      I like the two colors on the doors - nice touch.

                          The doors look super, Ken. Looking forward to seeing the door hardware, and your painted on sign!

                            Thanks everyone :up:

                            Pat, these are the same doors. They will be modeled closed. I just cut out the window openings in the cardstock. I did this because the interior will have light along with one above the door.

                            LVRALPH, the wood was given a bath in some A&I, allowed to dry and then painted with a very fine brush to make it look like peeling paint.

                            Bruce, that would be too easy I really want a painted on, faded sign. Since the letters will be fairly large I hope I can pull it off. We'll see....

                              A box of detail parts finally arrived so I've been slowly adding them to the building. Still need to paint and weather the lock.



                              I ordered some hinges, but they are really too big (imagine that) and thick. You would think door hinges would be easy to find with all the dollhouse stuff around...not! So I might end up making my own or use O scale stuff.

                              Was wondering if you guys think the door and window should have trim around them? They fit real tight with no gaps to the walls but I'm undecided if I should add them or not.

                                Ken, the door handles and door knob look great, as does the sign and the numbers over the door.

                                I think that the way you have the doors and window set into the brick looks 'prototypical' to me.
