Allright folks...im a little late getting this official thread started...but I was a day into this project when I made a fatal cut that cost me the whole project...so I had to start again. But enough with the excuses....lets get to the scratchbuilding. The place im going to model is called "Bucks Stove Palace" which is a really neat lookin building I found here in Portland OR. The structure itself interested me, with its large store front, awning, and roof lines. As well as the sheer size of the building. Here are a few pics of the building. Front of building Side of the building One more. So I began with the front entryway...and cut it as one single piece. The I modified a couple of Grandt Line doors to match the doors on the building. I then combined them with the window panes I made from scale lumber. Finally...after some painting, I added them to my front piece. I used right angle pieces for the molding of the building. Finally I cut the other three pieces of the primary structure and fastened them together making sure to include roof lines. And now begins my tedious "Masking tape shingles" technique. Its tedious,....but I love the results. Thats about all ive accomplished today....its lookin ruff now...but the end product should be great!
