    So I was in a new hobby shop this weekend in Tucson and this little kit caught my eye. It is laser cut and the detail is... WOW! I only hope I can do it justice. I thought I would post my progress here little by little to be harassed by all... uhmmmm.... I mean to be enjoyed by all!
    Step one - go back to the hobby shop and purchase white and red for experimenting with my new airbrush. I figured I would get the main shell of the structure complete first and then spray the outside as opposed to painting and assembling (windows/doors/glazing) each piece at a time.

    I accidentally came across this thread the other night and figured I better attach a finished picture for the masses that have anxiously been waiting the last two years!

    That building turned out very nice and made for a great scene on your layout! I really like working with laser cut kits. They seem to very often turn out really well. Where did you get a the nice N scale cars?

    Is the yellow railcar next to it the kitchen, the dining room or the "new annex"? :mrgreen:

    Very nice!

    Most of the cars in that scene came from the LHS. The pickup truck and some of the sedans are from Classic Metal Works while all of the Z cars and some of the other little Japanese looking ones came from Tomy.

    Could be any of the above I guess but I rather envisioned it as the dining room since the main building is occupied mostly by the kitchen with just a small area up front for ordering. :rolleyes:
