This was my second large structure scrathbuilding adventure that came after Lauthers' Perfect Pickles. All board by board right down to the 2 x 4 framing and individual clapboards and the brick by brick chimney.

Martin, your work on this store is absolutely awesome. And the interior shots show how detailed your model is. How did you make the lacy work on the guardrails in the front of the building?

The lacey railings are lots of pieces of Grnadt Line parts cut up and put back together with parts from some other company, no longer in business, whose name escapes me. Looking back at that apsect now I probably should have made some molds of the entire sections for future use.....

Oh well, made it once so I know I can do it again....

Very well done! I really like the way the crane is attached to the outside walls. Neat idea. The only distraction to my eye is the lighting wiring. But what an outstanding model... Again, well done!

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Martin: Absolutely awsome work. I assume you are working in O scale?

Thanks you all for your kind words!

Yes, O scale and all that I work in right now since seeing smaller is a challenge and I foresee F or G in the future,

As I stated, this was the 2nd large building that I had made and it did turn into work torwards the end so the next large project remains in a box on the lathe table.

That lift out for the 2nd floor is something that I really dislike taking out since I have to bend the entire floor to take it out and return it. Not entirely happy about the lighting myself but I had sort of thought about being able to look through the windows to see the several mini-scenes inside would work. It actually does if you have a decent camera and know how to use it - that disqualifies me! But a friend of mine did get a few good shots make that way but I don;t have them. I need to get my phtographer daughter onto this challenge....

What you can't see is that there's an entire Post Office inside; guys playing checkers around the stove, and a bunch of "old store" scenes of counters, can & bottles, and lost of "stuff". you can neverohave too much "stuff",
