Sometimes I get bored with the style of storefront that comes with most kits. Whether it's DPM, Smalltown USA or Walthers they all seem to be circa 1890 or so, which is fine sometimes, but what I see out there more often is storefronts that have been retrofitted over the years. Below is a shot showing what I mean. The buildings themselves look a lot like the kits you can buy, but the storefronts do not. So I decided to do something about it. Here's the first shot that I used for inspiration.
