Hey Rich:

Nice work all around. I especially like what you did with the front wall. I love all the signs.

Working on the roof and getting the rear doors on...

Nice thing about photos they really do point out areas for improvement.

I'm working on scratching an overhead door for the front. It's an experiment in illusion. We'll see how it goes.
Again thanks to all of you who are following and making comments.

Excellent job on the roof. How did you get the tar lines on the roof?

The usual method - black paint & white glue applied with a tooth pick.

Excellent job on the roof.
Thanks Curt.

Here's a quick pic of the front...

Note the 1950s garage doors and the office.

Next I need to get this down onto a piece of plywood. Then add some scenery, details, peeps, and vehicles.

Wow!
Thanks so much...
Karl, George, Dave, Dennis, and Tom

My wife took me to Cape Cod (a.k.a The Beach) for a few days.
Here's what I left behind...

I know it's a weird angle photographically. My only excuse is I took it with my phone.  8)
The piece of plywood is about 12 square inches. There's some road and sidewalk work. I just placed the structure so you can see where I left it.

While away these arrived...

I'm hoping to build a few of these rather than the various stand-ins I normally use. Dan (Raymo), and his builds, have been most helpful. We'll see how many I can destroy.  :o

Thanks again for the kudos folks.
