Adding another block to the dio,  need opinion on which set of buildings I should incorporate.

Option A



Option B



The building on the far left had a major piece missing. The front of the 2nd floor, so I added this.



Also this block won't be quite as sleazy as the original.

It will be 10x 30. Will fit up nest to the other section. Eventually will be about 10-15 feet altogether.

Okay I think I finalized the new section of town.



I may even add another block to it also.

The work continues, I got the base assembled, and a couple pics of what it should look like, I HOPE!!! :blink:

The length is 48 inch's, by 11 3/4 wide.


Here you can see where it will match up with the old section. I left room for street, and sidewalks.



This will give you another feel for it. Alleyway will be in the back like in the old section.

Interior work for one of the buildings. The walls still have to be decorated.
These will be the inner walls, and counters.



Outside looking in.


I know it's a wild color combo, but then this is a hippy district of town.

Just about done with the new addition.  Got the walls up, and the roof ready The roofing material I will use a piece of sand paper.



Outside front, and side wall. I used a body skin for a Pine Car Derby kit.



Making some stools for the counter. Used a paper punch, and some  square brass tube for the supports. These will be glued to sequin pins I installed from the bottom.



Finished the walls in side.



You can see the pins in the above shot.
