Added another large scale build to the to-do list. The footprint on this one is 11-1/4x8-3/4" by 3-1/2" tall. The buses were in the sale catalof for $12.00 ea. Normally they are $25.00, so I stocked up, and bought 4 of them. Along with the others I have already I now have a small fleet.

While waiting on some deatils for another build I got this done.Here are the side bay roofs, I painted them with Asphalt paint (thick) then added fine ballast to it for a textured look.

Next I add new floor for the interior.

Getting in the windows, and put a wash on it.

Very nice start so far, Junior. I like those Cornerstone buildings. They look very nice when built and detailed.

Here I improved it I think. I used 3-D letters like they use on Menu Boards to make it stand out a bit.

Added a tile floor, as the base plate piece I put in waas uneven. Now all is level for the interior stuff.

And finally you can catch the local, or go long distance on the Greydog.

Got some more done.
Looks like the Pinball wizard is in the house. Funny thing was when I shot this pic, the oldies station played that song.

Next we needed benches. I made 4 of them, and each one will hold 12 people.
