|The finished block with its windows.|
Earlier, I posted about how I use photos of real windows in real buildings to make windows in my model buildings--and how I think this is an easy way to make realistic looking windows.
(As I pointed out in that post, on a sunny day you can't see more than three feet or so inside a building, so why worry about creating interiors? Plus, the prototype supplies everything we need if you have a camera and make glossy prints.)
In that post, I had started the process of adding windows to a block of buildings in "downtown" Ritchie. It's done now, as these photos show.
One change from the earlier post is that I decided to resurrect Elmwood Hobby Works, my hometown hobby shop which recently closed. I not only used its windows, but its door, too. Appropriately, the sign on the door says "closed."
Well, it may be gone for real, but it lives on on the M & Sub.!
