These photos are more of the Artitec buildings. The sidewalk is made from card stock...usually I use styrene but cardstock is both easier to work with (that is, easier to cut!) and cheaper. Others have used to to good effect so I thought I wold give it a go.
Walthers Hardwood Furniture structure. Honestly, it turned out really well and has me thinking of more HO kits I can 'convert' in the future!
And finally, below is the 'street' itself across from the station. It also provide s a good view (and one of the few photos that came out in decent focus!!!!) of the 'deconstructed' Arnold Universal building that become a small office tower with a giant "Miele" billboard on the roof.
several months back (not shown in the above photo as the station tower is blocking them) I need a few more buildings to complete the scene. I also need to get clever about creating depth at the road intersection shown in the above photo. There are some interesting paper-based kits available from Scalescenes that I may work on next.
Finally, thanks to everyone for the nice comments. Truly...THANK YOU! I know what an absolute PAIN the latest version of the "Capcha" security thing is....how annoying is that! Of course, anyone who has started a blog knows how quickly the ridiculous spammers will start posting if you don't have this sort of feature, but wow, its annoying! Its an amazing test of patience and tenacity to write a comment these days!
