One of the more prominent structures seen in some of the LAJ YouTube videos is the faded gray two story on the southeast corner of S. Everette Avenue and the Horn Lead.  The colors and weathering are complex enough that I plan to use the photo laminate technique.  What makes that method a little more challenging here is that the windows are noticeably inset from the structure face.  To capture that relief I’ve modeled the insets in the core.  Since I need perfect alignment between the holes cut for the windows in the photos and the relief in the core, I had to print the photos, cut the windows in the photos and then use them as a guide to cut the openings in the core.

Shown above is the completed core.  Notice that I’ve painted the edges of the insets the same light gray as the structure.
