Thanks, guys.  Well, this one is finally finished.  The kit has black paper to use as the roof.  I hadn't used this before and wanted the four roofs to not all look the same.  Two of the roofs are paper, one is tarpaper I had left over from some other kit, and I did one with the black paint and some "gravel".

Some roof details were added, then it was on to the signs.  Two of the store fronts were to have awnings.  But I didn't put one over the Bail bonds.  I was lazy, and I think miscreants who need bail should get wet if it rains.   ;D The yellow awning was fluorescent yellow, and I wasn't going to use it, but a coat of A&I toned it down.  The awning is supposed to have the store sign attached to the front, but as you can see the sign was way too big, the black rectangle is the plastic underlay for the awning.

Anyway, like I said,  this one is finally done.  This will go on the layout in the East Dubuque area.  I have FOS' "Bar Crawl" ordered to do next, then I might feel like tackling FOS' "Red Light District".

I think I've figured out how I did the mortar on the structure.  One side was Robert's with A&I applied afterward, then another thin layer of Robert's mortar.  The other was grey chalk or weathering powder.  The sides now match.   :) The glazed windows are drying, and I'm assembling the walls with 5 minute epoxy.  Oddly, I wrote 4/09 inside the wall, must be when I started it.   :o Seven years for a structure sounds about my speed. 


Jeff ;D

Jeff,
  Your structure turned out great !...maybe you wrote 409 on the inside wall because you were listening to greatest hits instead, not the date the project was started... ::) ::)
