Progress has been slow! The walls are stained with Dr Ben's 2 pt's barn red 1 pt teak  (the barn red was kinda pinkish without it) with a a/i wash. The inside walls are studded and stained oak and washed. The signage was stencil and airbrush. That was first time airbrushing I only had to repaint one.

It's starting to get big!! Next is 80 + trusses. The building lifts off to show interior details wall joist, trusses, bins, decking and rails, thank heavens if not it would be like building a ship in a bottle, a real deep bottle! This thing is 2 feet long. I have slate shingles ordered to me a corrugated roof just wouldn't look right.

A couple more pictures of the building.
1. NY - PA state line marker this picture was taken where RT 17/I-86 is now. If you look hard you can see DL&W water tower at the front corner of Murray's.

2. Insurance Co. made them lock it up, when I was a kid they were never closed.

Looks great!  That's going to be one very impressive structure when finished.  It'll look wonderful on a layout.   :D

Trusses trusses and more trusses 80+!!!!!  They are fragile I broke and glued lots of them back together if you sand them towards the peak  not the tail they break, bump them or just cutting them out they break. They do give you 2 extra covet them.
Next will be the roof I have 1/32 bass wood sheets for subroof (for strength) and slate shingles from SRMW Shingles 200 sq. inches 100 on top and 100 over the shoots. Slate was the original roof per John Baird great, great grandson of John H Murray. Any one with ideas on how to color them I would like to hear and see it. I like Deemery's idea of printing out guide sheets too.
When the pics were taken it was snowing and icy so they were taken in the back of the car my apologies.
