Could you give us a more compete materials list and places on line where they are available. 


Thanx


Bob
I'm only paranoid because everyone is out to get me.

Hello Everybody,

First, thank you Bob for your comment. Unfortunately, I didn't write a "Grocery list» of the material involved in this project. the only things that are sure is the Tichy reference of the window (8236) pieces of store front  (8120) and the lite door/transom (8116). The brick material is from Monstermodelworks (1/32 thick), and the strip wood (all size from 1 x2 to 18 x 12) are part from Northeastern scale lumber, and part from remaining pieces from previously built kits.

This week I wasn't in the mood to make the finish the roof of the bay window, I've prefer to work on the store front of the building. I can't describe all the step I've do to achieve (one reason is that I don't have the architectural vocabulary to do it, and second is it would be fastidious to read). I prefer to give you four pictures of this step by step. 





Finally I've paint the storefront with acrylic Pine Green color (Cermacoat  Brand), and dry brush it with folkart vintage white.
Here's the final result.


The next step is the big cornice located between the storefront and the brick Brick front of the building.
Stay tuned, to be continued.

Eric

Really nice, Eric.

I take it you used strip-wood to make the ornate columns?

Cheers, Mark.

Hi Mark,
Yes, the base of the columns are 18" x 12" (scale). then the ornament are doing with 1 x 3, 2 x12, 1x10, 2x6 ans 1 x2
All the columns are made at the same time, all pieces of ornament are cutting with the choppers to be assured to have the same lenght for all the columns. In this kind of work, the beauty came with the regularity and repetitiveness of the pattern.
Eric

Thanks for that, Eric.

I'd guessed pretty much right for all the sizes.  I recently started scratchbuilding my freight doors and discovered the ease of cutting multiple pieces for multiple doors at the same time.  I think what I enjoy most is the ease at which you can paint 2 different colours by simply painting the timber before assembly.

Cheers, Mark.
