Hi Everyone...

Here are a some shots of some recent builds I am finishing up on for my own layout. These two are being used as background shallow depth buildings up against my back drop. They were fun builds. Both are nearing completion - at around 90% and will be soon added to my layout.

HO Scale - Sherwin Williams Building: This is the left over buildings from the ITLA (Imagine That Laser Art) Coopers kit. I had used the other building to build out the Pep Boys Auto Parts building I had previously posted. Building is pretty much stock, and just added a number of additional details, signage and some castings. Nothing too complex or fancy at all. I really like the Coopers kit - 3 buildings and you can really do a lot with the kit parts. I chose to make these separate builds. Happy with how this one turned out.

HO Scale - Yaletown Fabrication: This is another ITLA kit, well actually tow kits combined together. It is the "D Building" flat background kit, and I joined two of them together to double up the size of this building. Again, really happy with the kit and look of it. I added a variety more details and some custom signage to build it out. Still a bit more to add, but like the look of it. Pretty shallow building, so fits great against the backdrop. The build was too wide to fit into my Photobooth and I don't really know how to stitch the picture together, so have posted pictures of both sides.

Here are the pictures from my two recent builds:

Nice looking additions for your layout!

Did you know that in Providence, R.I., in addition to a statue of its founder, Roger Williams,
there is a smaller lesser known one of a little short man in rumpled, paint splattered coveralls holding up a paint roller?

...his long overlooked half-brother, Sherwin! :)
Maybe you can get a replica for the parking lot for your building :}

Karl,

Very well done indeed. You're very adept with the coloring of the brick and the mortar. And the details look carefully painted and installed. Both buildings have a convincingly gritty, grimy backstreet look.

Mike

Well crap!!! I have no idea. Well that really sucks - I have no idea what I was doing there. Gee... dunno how I miss-spelled that so badly. Typo and I just never caught it. Damn, I will need to make a new sign and fix that. Thanks for catching that.

Thanks Jim. They are really good kits to work with and I like them quite a bit for my background buildings. I add various details and they all blend well together on my layout.
