Some progress made. I decided to throw a light primer on it. Mainly because I was tired of looking at all the white on white.





What I haven't decided on yet is the upper part of this wall. I could finish it off like the other two walls. The prototype was not. But I'm not sure that really matters, as the building is not meant to be an exact copy. Or maybe just the wide band at the top and finish out the brick up to that point? As you can see, the windows are not arched like the other walls, I'm considering this the low-rent end of the building.



Any thoughts?

VERY, VERY NICE !!! Great job. It looks like a casting with the primer coat.

Fred, Good progress. The upper part of that back wall could just be plain brick all the rest of the way up, without even the wide band at the very top.
That would fit prototype buildings I've seen where all the fancy stuff was only on the street side(s) and it would enhance the 'low-rent end of the building" of the rest of the structure.

A LOT of progress. Excellent with the primer !

I like the wide band at the top and finish out the brick up to that point option.

Thanks, Bob, I guess that's good, huh?

Bill, it will be street side but side street side. So still not main street.

Yeah, Carl, I knew a little paint would pull things together.

Maybe I'll go with a smaller condensed version of the upper band. The main reason for the upper band idea was to cut down on how many more bricks I need to lay. [:-cry]

I finished out the unfinished wall. Dressed it up a little but not too much, I don't think.



And added those two elaborate birdhouses to the upper corners.

Good details, Terrell, like the sidewall treatment.

Fred,

I've got to tip my hat to you Sir, for your continued construction and ability to make fine dioramas. And, the added s-b-s every time you build something. I refer back to your builds even though it is a different scale than mine. This will be another excellent model.
