The model, Miller Welding, (it is built in 1/4” scale and the foot print is 4 1/2” x 5”.)
was already an idea because of the two car stone garage by John Kosma. I resized the structure and wanted some doors and windows to create a shop (a very small shop that fits on my 1940’s Chicago traction layout. I used windows from other buildings I already had of yours and made all the extras such as table, box, barrel, trash cans, trash out of the sheets such as the roofing, original doors of the garage and the picket fence printout. I paid a lot of attention to detail and found paper works in reproducing almost anything and perhaps quicker. I still want to do a 1936 Chevy pickup for the shop(a challenge for sure). The chains that hold the sign up are a work in progress and the Miller Welding lettering almost did me in. I got smart and typed up the other two signs. I used Z56 glue and gulp, some elmers (my grand daughters). Tools were a steel ruler, exacto knife, razor blade, set of fine point markers and some chalks.
Besides the glue, the entire model is your paper, even though I copied several sheets for extras. Note the gutters on the roof along with the smoke stack and stand pipe. The sky light is from your industrial window sheet.
Thom adds, Wes created a great sense of story with this model. I especially like the interior shop.
