Cafe Corner 13th and Walnut Building

Cafe Corner 13th and Walnut Building

Post  Shuppiluliumas on Wed Feb 02, 2011 1:24 am

I haven't posted pictures on flickr or anything yet because it's not done, but here's my new building made using the last LUGBulk and a Tower Bridge set.



It's inspired by this building at 13th and Walnut in Philadelphia.

Hopefully I will be able to bring this to the meeting this week for feedback.

That looks awsome. I like that we are building more buildings based after or copies of real buildings.

Cool. We can definitely use more corner-buildings on the layout.

Very nice. How did you make the angled windows going up the sides of the building?

Wow, this is just incredible! the angle on the windows is very well done, and the tan and dark red really accent each-other nicely. Good work mate!

I have to agree with every one else. Awesome work so far. This will be a welcome addition to our layout when finished.

What color are the plates you used: dark red or reddish brown?

Thanks everyone. Obviously I need a couple more 1x2x3 windows in black, and I was originally thinking of making all the upper storey windows tan, but the white has actually started to grow on me. Thoughts?

Dark red. They're a mixture of older dark red, when the color control was really bad and the new, darker, flatter dark red. I have a pretty good sized supply of 1x2 plates in that color.
