    Some buildings I'm building for a client, 90% finished! :thumb:

    I invite all of you to stop by my site and take a look at more of my work: protopaintwest - PROTOPAINT WEST INTRODUCES ITS NEWEST SE





    Here's some of the complex wiring found in a the Cafe: Two neon signs, plus lighting for the entire structure.


    And this is just 1/4 of all the buildings! :eek:

    Lookin' good. How are you painting those? I can never get bricks to look good.

    It's painstaking, believe me! That's at least four different colors of paint, and about 6-7 think coats where needed on the Winfield Cafe.

    Awesome work! I like the battery pack hidden in the cafe. :cool:

    Are those the DPM kits? They look great...I know how tough it is to paint those Nscale buildings - steady hand/tiny brush. Where did you find a fire escape? It looks like a perfect fit.

    Let me tell you how good you painting skils are: in that first pic, I actualy thought that you'd taken a pic of a real building (I only saw the top half). You are a MASTER painter. I can hardly paint the indivual bricks in HO scale, so I can probably relate to how painstaking it is for N scale...

    Very nice! I really like the cafe sign and the other advertisements painted onthe walls. Great looking details like the fire escape drive my less-than-nimble fingers crazy! Well done!

    Excellent work MilesWestern. First class superdetailing on that Winfield ( best known as Roadkill ) cafe. You are a perfectionist ( It helps when you want to make a living building scale structures )
    DPM makes very nice structures.The only complaint I have is that they should make the doors and windows separate items.

    Here is my humble "amateur version" of it.
