(SOLD) TOP’S LIQUOR MODERN AND MID CENTURY HO SCALE

Here are a couple of example from the NEW Top’s Liquor Set# 7035 where you can make either a Modern or Mid Century building but if you don’t have time to build them the MODERN is for sale and the Mid Century is SOLD. Not every decal on the models are on the set but more are and all are available in the store.  These are lit with 12VDC LED but I for got to get a picture of them lit but I’ll add some later. Footprint is 2″X3″ and 4″ tall.

(FOR SALE) THE WONDER WOMAN MUSEUM – HO SCALE

And now for something completely different … the Wonder Woman Museum HO Scale building … Found some little Super Hero statues at the Dollar Tree and grabbed a few different one Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman and  thought ‘Hey there is a giant Superman in Metropolis IL and the Superman Museum so why not build something like that?’ and since I have Superman and Batman and Might find some more I may do those too depending on if this one sales.
anyway about the model this is all custom sizes and modified decals to fit this building with a hand scribed base and some mistakes at no additional cost. The footprint is 6″X8″ and it’s 4″ tall – lit with two 12vdc LED’s it will come bare wired unless you want it wired for a 110VAC plug than that’ll be about $20.00 – as for price I’m entertaining offers as I’ve never made one like this before and don’t know where to start … might just toss it up on ebay and see where it goes.

Here are the pics …

CUSTOM BUILD FOR DUCKS UNLIMITED CANADA

Nothing super detailed here, limited info, limited budget and a couple of pictures, a couple of measurement and the rest was yea they looks right … This was for Duck Unlimited Canada

(SOLD) NEW BUILD UP MODEL HO SCALE MAMMAW’S GARDEN WINDGATE APT

I’m calling it about 95% finished, I have a few touch up and things to do I didn’t see until I took the pictures but no real big things so I’m going to go ahead and post it for sale.
This is a Hydrocal Building from Downtown Deco with a number of custom decals and hand painted graffiti in addition to decals graffiti, building is lit with 12VDC LED lighting and is ready to be wired into a layout or have a 9VDC battery added which I’ll include (loose) with purchase. Set in the 1970’s and 1980’s which tagging and graffiti was king, MAMMAW’S GARDEN and WINDGATE APARTMENTS … you notice Mammaw didn’t put up with kids tagging her building and painted over the graffiti and a few vines got out of hand in the back, the WINDGATE is a low rent Apartment on the wrong side of the tracks so graffiti pollutes the sides as the slumlord only care about the rent and was too cheap to buy a decent sign and just painted the name on the side.  Few roof details and old water tank with A/C units and wiring and with window decals and silhouettes. Old dated advertising on the sides echo a forgot era.
PRICE is $375.00 plus S/H
NOTE there is a repaired crack in the left wall of Mammaw’s Garden I did that while doing the graffiti on the other side by not realizing I had it setting on a brush, so now the crack is part of the buildings history.
If you have questions ask!

NEW BIGGER 18 COLOR WEATHERING POWDER SETS ARE COMING!

OK did a little asking around and some folk would rather I have names for the weathering powder beyond their “technical name” – something like IRON OXIDE BLACK would be “SOOT, HEAVY GRIM” or IRON CHROMATE might be GRIM, ROAD DUST so I’ve been working on names of these powders but since they can be used on anything I’ve be reluctant to pigeon hole hole them with a specific name … believe it or not naming colors is harder than I thought.

These are all natural 99.7 pure pigment, not chalks, no fillers, not ground up pastels, pure earth pigments ground to 325 mesh.

Anywho … This is the color coming.  For now I think the 18 color set with be $40 in the store. The current 10 color set is $23 right HERE

BARGAIN BIN PAGE

As hard as it is to believe I screw up sometime and make too many, have discontinued sets, forget a setting change, made them too big or too small, or suffer a technical malfunction that good enough to use but not good enough to sell as perfect. So As the pile has grown I’ve started a bargain bin to clear a few out, the prices are a lot lower based on degree of error. Most are “one of” a few I have more than one but generally one per listing and once it GONE it’s GONE …

I have several to list and I’ll get to all them as I have time and check back often you never know what I’ll put there – I know I have a building, some old kits, some N Scale trains that will be going there and again most all if it is one of’s so it you see it and want it, get it as it might be gone next time.

TWO NEW BUSINESS SETS COOTER’S LIQUOR and WHISTLE STOP CAFE

I have two new sets out this week, Cooter’s Liquor which I made for a O Scale build article I’m writing that hopefully will appear in more of the train magazines (I’ll let you know) and the Whistle Stop Cafe which I also made for this build but opted not to use due to the size of the kit. Since this is a smaller kit in O Scale these should kit easily on a HO Scale kit too. Remember the GREEN GRID is 1/2″ so you can get a idea of the size of each image.

(SOLD) MID CENTURY CITY BLOCK – SUPER DETAILED w/ CUSTOM DECALS AND DETAIL PARTS

Well here is  my latest diorama, build with Downtown Deco Coming and Going Kit with some boneyard parts to make the diner. Also assorted other parts, many hand made detail parts and custom decal graphics. Lighted by 12VDC LED lighting and the custom made decals are available in my store (well most are some I made for just this build). The window treatments decals are also available in acetate and clear or white decals. These took a while to build, but I admit I’d work on it awhile and quit and start and quit.

The cars (except for the abandon panel truck) are not included in this diorama, but are available if you want them.

I’ll be adding more pix and info to this post later as I get more time.

DAVE’S DECALS AND DOWNTOWN DECO’S JOINT PROJECT “Worst Block in Town”

It brings me great happiness to announce that I, your humble decal maker will have a custom decal set in Downtown Deco’s latest release “Worst Block in Town” (TBA) from the header of “Pepprock Products” to the many signs and ghost images, all will be included in this up coming kit. This is a full half sheet (5.5″ X 8″) of decals.

While this might be the “Worst Block in Town” but it is one of the best kits and set of decals going out there in the world … this HO Scale (1:87) kit has huge ghost decal for the side to be easily seen even at a distance, plus several other decals to liven up your building including the Pepprock Product headers. As you know anyone that has been into scale structure modeling even for a little while knows of the fine work Randy Pepprock does with Downtown Deco. I have personally built several of his kits and I have really enjoyed them as the hydrocal kits provides a workable dimension not available in plastics from the ability to carve in extra detail and hydrocal takes paint (prime it first) better than plastic or wood any day of the week. If you have never worked in hydrocal, try it and don’t let it scare you, because if I can do it so can you.

Anyway

From Downtown Deco’s Facebook Page (Go there and LIKE it)….

The “Worst Block in Town” inches closer to release. You get the couch, but not the car. : ) This kit will feature a set of signs from Dave’s Decals. HO Scale. Please do me a huge favor & share with your model RR friends.

So do Randy a huge favor and share this with your friend from RR folks to collectors of Scale Buildings.

As of this date (9-30-15) a release date and price point has not been announced, but these will be available exclusively from Downtown Deco and not available in stores at this time. So make sure you get yours as soon as they are available … tell him Dave sent you!
