Very, very nice.

I like that shorty passenger car #7 in front of the station.

Hello Michael,

wonderful buildings and rolling stock!

You really catch the atmosphere and your fantastic weathering adds the final touch. If you have more pics we would be happy to see them.

So long,

Wolfgang

Thomas Yorke's kit of the "Pool Hall and Bordello" in HO scale.





Finished!





Front:





Primed the castings with grey and started the stone color.





I paint the stones with a light ochre.




















The floor:





I used the Vallejo wood paint set.





Looks nice when dry.
The fronts are very time consuming to build, as they need to be built to fit.















Interior wall for the stair well.
Most of the building assembled.





The rooms are lit up with SMD LEDs.















Rear:




















Side:





Roof details:















Fuel tank:





Interior:










Details:





I'm very happy with the result.

Wow Michael, just wow.

This kit is my all time fav from the time it was released in the early 1980s, I coveted it.
 
I had wanted it for so long,
I finally picked one up for a hideously unrealistic price in HO to use a Basque Hotel in my HO town on my my last layout.

We decided to move... I decided that I needed to change scales, smaller space, bigger trains. 
I sold it, at a stupid loss. 

BUT!!! 
I bought one in O scale, less expensive than what I paid in HO. 
I am waiting for the chance to finish up with some of this house stuff,
so that I can begin to build an operating shelf layout to be moved into my bigger building eventually. 
When that happens, this kit is on my list of "real quicks."

Very, very nice job. 
And yes, this kit deserves an interior. 
I am in awe.
