Hi guys, Rich from RS Laser sent me some Ply sheets, so, I cut here his store in 0 scale and a bunch of details for this. I designed new windows and doors. Interior walls are cut in 1mm MDF.





I have drawings of a variety of furniture and other stuffs, like chairs, fruit cases and ornaments. So tried to cut them in thin ply. Here are they...





I cut about 20 fruit cases for less than 5 bucks.




I hope to do some justice to the drawings sent by Rich.

This is excellent Lucas!

Those laser cut detail bits are exceptional as well.

I look forward to seeing what you do with all of this.

Some of that laser cutting would be near impossible to do with "conventional" tools.


Very impressive!

Update!!!! :glad::glad::glad:

A month ago, we moved to a new home, and they said...new home...new life...

Well, I was so happy and took an old project to finish.

Firts thing I did was a stone foundation, I poured some plaster in a mold and scribed all the stones with a knife. Then I did a wash with ink to the wood sides and painted the interior white and brown.



 
The front windows was perfect for add a complete interior, so, I had to add a lot of stuffs to those empty shelves you saw in the first pics. I add a couple of castings outside from Rusty Rails.

The old posters was printed in a laser color printer and glued to the sides. Fruits and more was modeled with putty.

 





 

Now, I´m working in adding some lights and the exterior terrain, still needs a lot of work, but am very happy to back to the hobbie with this kit.


More to come... :2t:

Outstanding, Lucas!!   :moose::moose::moose::moose::moose:

to the best of my knowledge, only the second time that 5 moosies have been awarded.

If that R25 BMW was full size, I might be tempted to come down there and steal it.

  This is nothing but top notch work. Can't say enough about it. There is much to see in every picture. Wish I had access to laser setup. Of coarse you need talent to go with  the products and you have both.

Fine work, Lucas! Wonderful detail everywhere you look. I especially like the porch roof.

 Love the look of everything in the pics. One thing I like is that it appears that you high lite everything with the white or a lighter color. My question is how you do it. Is it a brush on technique? Gives the appearance that everything aged about the same rate. Next question is how or where do you get the items for the shelves inside the store. Are they commercial or home made? I like the idea that just a small portion of the overall building has interior detail. At first look you think the whole building interior is detailed. What I mean is the full depth of the interior.  Again great build!  :2t::2t::2t:

Lucas, very well done. I'm assuming this is O scale just from the quality of the details?
I have a little thing to suggest, the great laser etching you did or someone did would be really white(coca-cola) since the rest of the machine looks to be in like new condition?
Thanks for sharing this wonderful project, Pat:glad:

Clif, I drybrushed everything after I finish each stuff, because is my final touch, this is why you see all with the same air... problem will be when I build something really big... like a roundhouse LOL

Belg, yeap, you´re right, today after seeing more pics noted that you said... the Coca machine looks newbie than the rest, will try to fix it.

Here´s a video that a friend did for me in youtube.
