The latest scratchbuild in G scale. there are a lot of these 'Antique' shops
all over France where junk is sold,mainly to Brit tourists,for double its worth! Not a lot different to UK and American tourists.

Looks good, Mikey. I like those paintings :lol: and the furniture outside. How long is the building? It's hard for me to get a good idea of G scale.

Very nice and I like the detail on the furniture outside. Look forward to seeing it incorporated on your layout. Is this for an indoors or outdoors layout?

One of the advantages of g scale is that you can include a lot of interior detail. I like doing scenes within scenes on smaller gauges as well, it keeps it interesting. thanks its just charting progress on the layout.
