You may remember my adventure into Norfolk recently, and my subsequent efforts to chop a row in half and finish in render, well

it occurred to me that further step was possible, and with John Wiffen's approval have decided to open Dooferton Village Stores.





    

My first effort, a mix of card, plastic [sorry] and wood turned out a little too grand....and will probably end up as a little pub,

    

however, Mk II is a little more restrained and will fit nicely [IMHO] on the end of the row.....





You know I can't resist a little 'play' so with my trusty John Ahern to hand came up with the jobby below,







I haven't decided what colour to paint the outside, the great man says it should be 'dark brown or dark green...'

I have sought out 'tween wars packets etc, and now I've hit on the trick of putting a bit of cardboard over the left lens of my glasses have got on a lot better.

Hope you like this, and that it might give you some ideas, more when I have done more,


Doug

Excellent Doug :thumbs

Is that a couple of boxes of OMO I spy before me?  Where's the Vim and Ajax?

Terry - Yup! That's a packet or two of Omo...Prior to its discovery and closure, a part-time house of ill-repute on a Portsmouth Naval estate used a packet of Omo in the kitchen [front] window to advertise that a visit would meet with a suitable reception...it stood for 'Old Man Out'....No Vim or Ajax, couldn't find any Gumption, either!

Shaun - I haven't any green, but I do have some GWR stock brown spray....

Today I've made up the front and back walls and cut out the space for the shop.




Doug

Hullo, Richard,

Here as promised some details  I simply found some suitable advertising material etc., on Google, saved the pictures, shrunk them to an appropriate size and printed them at 300 dpi, mounted them on card of various thicknesses, cut them out and posed them on a very simple interior. Where the white edges of the card shewed, I 'bodgered' them with coloured crayon, I hope you won't be disappointed when you realise how crude it is! The tiled floor [ a personal memory] is from the interior of a local bank statement envelope...

I think it's quite patent, but should there be anything further you'd like to ask, go ahead, if I don't know there are plenty of 'eggspurts' here!









Doug

I'm assuming that by "between the wars", you are referring to WW2 and either the Korean War or the Falklands War Doug. :roll::roll::roll:

I remember most, in fact, probably all,  those products but the two wars normally referred to as being "between" are slightly before my time. :shock::shock:

I remember 'War of the Worlds' starring Tom Cruise.  What a load of rubbish that was? :lol:

It might be between the "War on Terror" and the "War on Drugs."

We've had both of those.  :lol:

Peter is right.  The film was was made by Paramount and starred Gene Barry.  I don't know the exact date that it was made, but as it happens I recorded it from the television recently and have still to watch it.  The opening titles look roughly to be from the 1960's or 1970's.
