Starting off with a printed copy of the paper model and converting that to a wood and other bits projects.

In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.

Martin, nice looking design, and your choice of windows, doors etc, are pretty close the the paper copy, so should be a nice looking structure.
Are you going with the same colours ?


Regards Rob

My current build.

Something probably in the green and yellowish color scheme, yes.

Really nice work Martin. Your design with the extra windows over the door is even nicer than the paper model.

How fancy will your paint job be? I thought it would be easier to paint first then assemble the storefront.

I'll be painting everything just before adding the glazing. I prefer to assemble things 1st and then paint rather than pre-painting to avoid having glue or solvents damage the paint when assembling.
