I have just managed to finish off this building. Again the walls are covered in Scalescenes great printable textures (light stone, on this occasion) This is a reasonable copy of a couple of shop fronts that are in my village. I wanted to make the front and the back detatcheable so that I could use the back with other things that I might make in the future (a warehouse front or at a push a goods in yard at a train station).
The Pharmacy and Post office signs were made for me in photoshop by my good lady wife and I think they look really good. To the rear I have built a small separately based stand of crates and a chemical drum. These turned out really well I think, the crates were scratch built from balsa wood and the drum is a copper pipe fitting I had in the cupboard. Again in Photoshop my wife created the "shipping stickers" that are on the crates and drum, these look really good I think, and printed out nicely.
All in all I am really pleased with how this turned out and as with the other buildings I hope to make more in the future using scalescenes great printable textures.
