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.

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.

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.
