|Not to be confused with any other store of a similar name|
Some of my UK followers may recognise a similarity with this store and a recently defunct chain of stores of a similar name - it's purely coincidental I can assure you (ahem).
|Twilight Street building from Set 1|
|Front of building|
The building has been increased in size along the front by just one width of upper floor windows and similarly for the sides (an increase of one window width.)
The footprint of the converted model is approximately 11"w x 8"d x 6"h (about 27cm x 20cm x 15cm), whilst the original is about 1"-2"shorter, but the height of the building (to the parapet is the same as the original.
|Boring side view.|
I re-scaled the shop signs in three sizes, the one above the front door being the smallest and the roof-top one being the largest.
|More interesting rear view,|
The rear of the original store hadn't got the shuttered entrance that can be seen on my version, that was cut and pasted from another of the buildings in the same set.
The sign is of course one of the larger scaled signs that I had made.
|The other, equally boring, side wall|
All the signs aren't actually flush with the walls of the building they all have a single coffee stirrer strip (what else) to make them stand out a little way from the walls.
Finally here's a shot of the roof "furniture", the access door is part of the model but the HVAC unit came from one of the many extras that come with the set.
Next week I'll be posting some of my latest toys and a couple of exciting "finds"but that's it then now for another week and as always, your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
