    Signs

    I started the end wall as plain styrene and painted a cream stucco color and didn't like it so I went to the puter and made the end walls with signs, what do you think?

    Well I like it! The end wall looks great and the uniforms over the freight doors is a nice touch!

    Top notch JM,
    What a transformation!! Great weathering and that end wall, well that is superb!!
    Virtually no glossy figures in the scene either, and oil stains between the rails ... Great! Keep the scraggy moggy ayay from those (Gauge?) boxes :D .

    I love it ..... and by the way, that new pollywhatever stuff ... It'll never catch on!!:D :D :D

    End Walls

    To answer about the end walls. I wanted in the beginning to have stucco walls on the end painted a tan color like one I saw somewhere. The wall didn't look right to me and I didn't want to tear them out, (Val gave me a great tip when I saw her great pictures, but it was tooooo late, ;) ) So, I cliped a portion of the bricks on the computer, I usually scan the building pieces in to do my rearrangement, etc., and then I did the signs for the one end wall on a seperate layer and faded them down, the same as the faded lady end, and printed it out on the computer. I cut them out and gluded with Elmers white glue to cover the ends. The color in real life is about dead on but the camera give them a little redish tint. But this will be a against the back drop building and will blend nicely. Thanks for all the compliments, but my wife said my hat size is getting bigger-----:D

    And that is N scale?

    Very nice!! Don't know if the chubby little cop would be able to catch anybody though, seems to be more of the 'door man' type to me:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    I missed this thread until now. What a great looking building! It has a lot of character! Neat work, especially the weathering and details.
