Thanks Al. Yes Ray, I've had a few in those but much more in other than model RR magazines, general modeling and ship and aircraft modeling.

By the way, it's funny what inspires one to build a particular model. This drugstore is a case in point. I was rumaging around in a ton of figures on the sale table of a dealer at a train show. I found that Doctor from the Norman Rockwell painting. I could not find the little girl with a doll so I had to convert one and it all started from there. I like to model drugstores and gas stations anyway, must be my misspent youth!!

Wanted to upload photos of another structure today but I'm having a problem. When I click on the "paper clip" to upload a file I get a message saying I must be logged on to do that. I am logged on.
Maybe tomorrow.

Runkle's Garage. Seems to be working now, let's give it a try. I usually name my buildings and businesses after friends and relatives, this one after my friend Dave Runkle.
Runkle's Garage is a scratchbuild completly freelance. I do love Garages and Gas Stations.

Some night shots of Runkle's Garage. When I was making this one I thought it would look bad for that mechanic to be working in the dark so I made a ltiile trouble light from a grain of wheat bulb so he can see under there.

Here's an inside shot of the office. The garage interior was photographed in-progress. It got a lot more cluttered but I don't have a photo of it.

Great stuff! I love the stove made from a 55 gal. drum, very true-to-life.

Nice work Bob and great attention to all the details, nicely full but not over cluttered.

I'm getting photos of several other structures ready for upload but in the meantime, here's a little delivery wagon made from the pull-out (I guess they are download now) from Garden Railways. I changed it to 1/24 scale and substituted sheet styrene for cardstock. Photos before and after painting.

Nice looking wagon, Bob. How did you make the wheels?

George, They too are all sheet styrene. I started with the spokes cut from a sheet (about 40 thou) and shaved the sharp corners off each spoke. I don't know if I said that right, they are not individual spokes, they are cut from one sheet to look like a many pointed star. Then sandwiched that between two cut-out circles to form the rim, inside and out of the spoke layer. Then a long thin strip was glued around the outside to form the tire. Lastly,two small sections of telescoping styrene tubing were glued to the center to form a hub around the axel.
I love sheet styrene as a building material.
Bob
