Thanks to Si's prodding I'm slowly starting to do some model railroading again.
Thanks Si.

I've spent a couple of hours working on the dressmaker's shop while I'm still pondering how I'm going to detail the dry goods store without compromising the ability to open it up and I'm a little burned-out on the junqueologist building for now.

I am working on the dressmaker's very much out of order, mainly because I really dislike working on the resin front windows. 

I added the front facade to get a better idea of how it fits into the "town". Then the hardest part, deciding the colors. Thanks to Steven B's tutorial on using inexpensive paints I had a much larger choice of colors available. I actually settled on an old craft store "chalk" paint I had on hand. It is "Patina".

I undercoated the facade with Copic markers. I use them on simulated board by board because  I can very the shade on individual boards. Then I diluted the craft paint heavily. Sadly, I had no Vodka available so I had to make do with airbrush thinner. 


Anyway, here are the results:





And here is how it looks with what I think will be the general layout of the main street in Yellow Creek:
