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

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.

Cheers, Gary.

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:

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.

For the age of the film, the special effect are quite incredible.

This is pre Star Trek and the moon landings.

Also remember seeing Gene Barry in Burke's law.


Back to the shop, I can remember one like that but it wasn't in a village, and it was painted a horrible dark brown colour.

Always remember standing outside looking at the peeling paint on the wall.

Thanks, Chaps!

I'm currently trying to adapt the Scalescenes model to give coloured guttering to match the down pipes, not too difficult I think, this really is an adaptable model, might stick a 'sumfin' else' on the other end too.

Doug

Nope, it was darker than that, like a dark chocolate colour.

Probably 'left over' paint from something else, the shop keeper got hold of.

Well, to colour the guttering proved easier than I thought, I simply replaced the Scalescenes black-edged overlay with two matching strips of paper




....and in response to a pm asking about chimney details on the green cottages, here is the way I did it....




to achieve this effect, as you are only after the edge view of the brick paper...




and here the first view of the newly renamed 'Bear Street Stores'....Off licence and tobacconist....

Looking at that shop reminds of my time as an errand boy for old Mrs Bennetts shop, working after school and Saturday mornings, on my bike with a basket full of bread etc. Now that's going back a long time, must be at least 50 years ago. good modelling, I like it.

Continuing the shop saga, Aladdin Pink Paraffin tank, made from a 3-pin plug earth cover, a funnel from doweling and florists wire.

That blocked gutter looks like a prime candidate for a few house-leeks and a bit of green overflow.....

Slates are Scalescenes [as are all other papers] printed in Greyscale to do away with the blue tint and bashed about a bit at the ends.





Vesti la Giubba!

Ahh yes, the old pink paraffin, remember it well. Keeping that area clean & tidy used to be another of my jobs in Mrs Bennetts shop. The memories come flooding back! Another fine bit of modelling using what's at hand. like it a lot Doug, keep them coming.

Thank you, gents for your kind remarks...

'Ere, Barney, better get round to Bear Street, looks like that yard could do with a bit of tidying too!




Poop poop

Doug

PS I'm in the dog house [or "Semper in caecendi etc] as this morning I was wearing my modelling apron and as usual was wiping my watercolour/acrylic brush on the front in between colours......after lunch I didn't put it back on, and, yes, I was wearing a 'good' shirt and forgot. Several 'wipe-wipes' later and a another shirt joins the collection described as 'Gardening clothes'.
