Having the book for Kalmbach done frees up a lot of time for modeling. This week’s projects involved two structures along First Avenue. The one shown above I call the “fire escape building”. I wanted the sculpture effect of the escapes as you look lengthwise down the street. The building itself is a kitbash of The Hilltown Hotel. I shorted the model two stories so as not to block the site lines done the street.

This structure is the finished version of what I shared in my last post. The sides have been curved to match the spur. This is a scratch build using parts from DPM and Tichy.

It’s hard to believe but the end is in sight as far as completing the bulk of the layout. Just a few structures and some detail work remain.
