Two day build. I had this HSM Silver plume store kit.





Really nice old craftsman kit with mostly printed cardboard and wood parts. Moulded plastic windows and corbels. Walls had to be cut from sheet wood. Roof material is surgical tape. Real glass in the windows (which needs to be cleaned...)











The smoke stack is made from a wood dowel.





Now some interior to make.

Refreshing to find somebody who actually BUILDS old kits instead of having them collect dust on shelves (running for cover).
Jose.

I agree with Oz, glad you are sticking around.

Silver Plume is a nice little town and anyone who gets the chance should visit it.  Georgetown is nice as well (and of course the railroad).

That store looks superb!

I like the brackets on the front overhang, Have those on our front porch, In real life they are a pain to paint, without just slobbering paint all over---my method.

Very nice, the distressed wood with paint looks just as it should.
And yes, I deplore unbuilt kits...I have maybe one or two.
