A BIG Thanks to all the folks who share their knowledge, and for giving me the inspiration to push the limits in this great hobby!

Thanks everyone, so no pressure then!
I meant to bring back some Gatorboard from the other home but I forgot it. I will get it next week. So I will ease myself in with one of the little support buildings in the kit - the DeRito Oyster Lunch Diner. This is made of laser board and card. The building sits on a concrete slab made of two pieces of card glued together and then painted a concrete colour.

Thanks Karl, Greg and Curt
Continuing........................... I painted wall battens guava while they still in the sheet. I attached them to the walls. Next up I added acetate for the windows and curtains to cover up for the lack of an interior. I then added some signage prefering the Pepsi sign over the Coke one!

I have joined the walls together. The instructions do not call for any bracing but I added some from my spares box. I used double sided tape and added the roofing paper. The sign was mounted on some card and then trimmed out with some painted 2x4 wood. That's your lot for today.................
