Have been working on this for a while , inspired by PBprops builds on Youtube, I removed the lightbox and built a support internally to raise to new roof line , added profiled plasticard to the diagonals and fitted some roof sections to create  a more authentic pitch.  Have altered the sign boxes by removing with razor saw and added 2mm plasticard strips , tried to make the front sign and front upper vertical panel more inkeeping to the Newbery prop and left the other three  sides  the same but  with the sign boxes lowered and inset plasticard to cover the voids above. also removed the  door handle and lock and replaced with plasticard tube slithers to create a more inkeeping looking yale lock in a slightly different position . Also cut down the base and filled the speaker and battery compartment joins.

Well there up lol , sorry about the order but cant be bothered with editing them again  as nearly gave up the will to live to get this far with uploading them , but you get the idea  even if in muddled order  the multiple upload kept jumping the screen about so that'll have to do for now . The signboxes are only blue tacked  at the mo,  so a bit of fettling and gluing on. Then  some more prep, primer, paint and weathering to do , quite chuffed with the result so far .

Bit more prep today with mr surfacer 500 and 1000 and knifing putty. Also started to add texture  to doors with acrylic paint applied with a stippling brush . also removed the sign and window on left handside to shave the inset to adjust the depth within the recess.51197108645_c997e1914b_c.jpg51196040651_17c313d251_c(1).jpgNo message is associated with this attachment.No message is associated with this attachment.51196253273_3c25ba9b47_c(1).jpg51196252448_b1721cb3e5_c(1).jpg

Getting there , layered up some different lightness patches of base colour and some white highlights applied with a dry brush . needs some detailing on the yale lock , frames  and decals to go on then some laquer and a black wash and maybe some weathering powders.51211464033_a89e8aa2de_c.jpg51212007639_f9f4a128f3_c.jpg

May have to redo the glass , the panes look a little wrong and unrealistic  ,may try removing the  factory paint and using some washes. Any tips on getting an authentic look ?

 More or less done with the highlighting and applied signbox decals , just a black wash and detailing on windows and the lock to do .51214214617_85877085cc_c.jpg51214929161_6f327d3369_c.jpg51214213372_8b67996fed_c.jpg
