Throw it together fast and cover it with paint quickly.

(sigh) that is the way prototype buildings are made also...

Bob, you do very nice work. The brickwork on your buildings is extremely well done. I'm looking forward to the ongoing saga as you build your layout

That's the point, Bob.... The overall effect. Plenty of guys can count rivets but they can't create a realistic looking scene. You have that covered.

You are correct Mike. One of my display layouts main industry is rivet mining.

Can't believe it......Went in the layout room today and discovered that dandelions have sprouted up all over! I am concerned that being stuck in May 1949 they will be here forever.

The next building I built was Alexander Shipping Co. Began by mocking up with foam board. Siding, shingles and trim was cut from cereal box cardboard.

I painted it with acrylic artist paint. I then slopped on some darker color and wiped off with a damp paper towel. When dry dry brushed with white.

The foundation was made with pieces off pink foam as described before. Painted with raw umber and dry brushed with white.

The awning is a piece of corrugated cardboard with the outer paper covering removed. If you look around you can find corrugated cardboard in many sizes that will fit any scale except maybe N scale. The coffee cup insulation sleeves at my local coffee shop are great for HO.

I cheated on the windows. A friend made them on his 3D printer. They are a bit to thick but "the overall scene " not foreground modeling allows it.
