I've been working on this model for quite awhile and still am less than halfway done, but here are a couple shots of some of the interior pieces posed against a scrap piece of matte board that is about the same color that the wall will be. Everything is scratchbuilt. In the first photo the posters above the cabinets are GIMPed in, but will be added when the interior is installed. The magazine rack on the far left is just posed in the photo. It will be on the opposite wall of the pharmacy, next to a soda fountain.

Outstanding! My eyes immediately went to that Alfred E. Neumann cover shot on the Mad magazine.

Thanks everyone! Here's a guide to some of the stuff on the shelves. Carl, it's HO scale.




1. Bits of transparent plastic with paint for "tops"
2. Twist-off tips from dog flea medication tube
3. Corrugated strips cut from clear music CD case
4. Colored styrene cut from bread wrapper clips**
5. Glass seed beads with nut- bolt-washer "tops"
6. Gold colored metal crimp beads for jewelry
7. Leaf springs cut from HO caboose truck
8. Florescent bits turned from "Light Brights" toy
9. HO shutter slats with crosscuts part way thru
10. Bits of lenticular lens toy^^ & added backing image
11. Tiny bits plastic fiberoptic rod with paint "caps"
12. Two tiny steel screws
13. Styrene rod, iridescent paint, nut, bolt, washer "cap"

** Using colored plastic meant didn't have to paint so good bond and no paint to smear with solvent cement.

^^Those flat sheets with a ridged face. When you tilt the sheet the image "inside" appears to move. The tall rotating display is mounted on a cutdown base from Model Power street sign.

The other items are mostly styrene strips, sprue or rods with tiny labels cut from magazines. Open boxes in the display cases are .005 styrene glued to sides of whatever the contents are. There is also a very tiny snail shell (not visible in either photo) on a shelf in the back.

What a fabulous Bill of Materials!

This is an elegant primer on creative modeling, and would make a really good starting point for a clinic.

Wow, Bill, what an array of small parts. They look so real and believable. Nice work.

Louis, Happy to help.
Pete, Hmmm, interesting idea to think about. Thanks.
Tony & George, Art Curren could see kits as an endless source of structural components, I like repurposing everyday small stuff as even smaller detail stuff :)
Thank you, Bob, I've learned a lot following your builds.
