    first steps...

    I am not quite sure what kind of building this is gonna be, but I know I don't want a signal tower. Here is my progress with modifications to the second story.

    update

    I cut an awning out of the roof. I was hoping the remainder would be large enough for the second floor roof, but it looks like I may have to come up with something else.

    well, I've got a roof now, but I havent decided what to cover it with. My thought was corrugated steel. I've also modified the stairs so the 2nd floor occupants have a way to get in and out.

    Since this structure will represent something that has been sitting in a mining area for 30 years, I figured it needs a little weathering.

    a roof...

    I made a roof out of some thin, shet brass I had lying around. I rolled it against the side of a 2" pipe fitting to get the corrugations. Looks ragged, but it cost me nothing and fits well. The wooden sidewalk is just scribed styrene sheet.

    I still havent decided exactly what this building will be. Mabye the downstairs will be some kind of small store or barber shop.

    with a few more details added... I've finally decided what this will be. it will be a small market that sells meats and dry goods. A carneceria. the shopkeep lives upstairs. all I have left to do are details..a few signs, a vent pipe or two on the roof, window glass, maybe some lighting.

    well, here is the final product: a general store/grocery/carneceria. I tried to use as many kit parts as possible. You should recognize many of the signs as woodland scenics dry transfers :) I'll try to upload some better photos in a few days - right now I have to use a dialup connection.
