Hi gang, last week I started to build this funny kit in 0 scale. Is the Yorke´s #103 Brick Store.
I starterd with painting walls with a mix of Humbrol #70, red and yellow. Then with white acrylics paint all the surface, removing it inmediately with a rag, this way I did the mortar lines.
Yesterday painted doors and windows.
Still I don´t know what will it be as a commerce, but I´m thinking to name it as my grandfather´s busines many years ago, was called "La Famosa", a nice place I grew up with lots of remembers with my cousin, the building doesn´t look like as the one I said, but adding only the name it´s all said. It was a pizza bussines and a beer corner in a little town far from the big cities here, the town is Dolores (yes, like the DRGW town!!)
So, this is the progress.
Hope you enjoy.

I agree...good start. Looking forward to your progress. I was a bit worried when you wrote you were using white for the mortar (usually that is pretty strong/bright)...but it looks like you are making it work.

Say...do you live near Plaza Matheu?  Wink

If you follow Avenida de La Plata all the way to the end at the water...is that an old dock, or a sunken ship?

Thank you guys! I used white and then with black india ink applied in lower parts.
Yes Marc, I live one block to Plaza Matheu. Was you seiing Google earth??
This docks are part of the port of La Plata, there is a shipyard near from it , and two cold-storage plants. It was a very popular zone by mid 40´s with full of inmigrants.

Lucas...It's a long story filled with too much alchohol and wild women  Wink Grin Grin Grin....

....yes, I used Google "Maps"...I saw the address on the package in the background of the photo....so, for the fun of it, I thought I would have a look...the only slightly confusing part was figuring out that you lived between 115th  and 116th Street/Ave.

Well guys, here is a prebuild to see how does it looks. Walls aren´t glue yet because I haven´t yet the MDF laser cut windows I design in CAD for the front. Will have it soon, I hope.
I have to work in weathering this brightness door. After glue all walls I will paint the building with a mate coat.
Cheers!

Looking good, I am interested in how you achieved the cracking in the concrete.

Thanks Michael, as I said, it´s an epoxi daugh modeled with fingers. The cracking lines were did with an X-Acto knife, after seeing a couple of pics as reference. Now I´m painting with grey base colour and then will do a wash with black india ink, to give life to these cracking lines.
