Well I built the building (Downtown Deco Kit Addams Ave Part III) some time ago and decided to put it on a diorama and then it sat for a while and awhile longer … this fully lit with with color light change in the interior club, flashing sign on the Club Atomic. Static light on the Check Cafe and rest of the interior with window silhouettes and details.
All decals are Dave’s Decals and HO Newspapers
Highly detailed exterior and custom decals with lots of detail parts and populated with handpainted Preiser people. Footprint is 7.5″X8″ and 6.5″ tall. Lighting is all LED on 12vdc barring the one 12 vdc incandescent warm street light.
Build from Hydrocal, styrene, white metal, foam board and resin.
Generic industrial building designed for back or side walls of a layout or you could butt it up next to a larger building. Comes with assort details on dock which are permanently affixed to the dock. Lit with two 12vdc LED bulbs a warm yellow for the second floor which the light color looks like old style bulbs and a slightly brighter warm white on the first floor.
Footprint (INCLUDING DOCK) is 6.25″ wide, 2.75″ deep and 5.5″ tall
Did a series of videos building models, it was me first shot at it and frankly I thought they all pretty much sucked and I really need to redo them on another one later on … this one like all of them will be up for sale soon and in the shop. Have a look …
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.
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.
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!
The latest build a kit from Downtown Deco it’s Addams Ave Part II and all the decals are mine and the kit has a few modification but not many … this one as many of mine are from the wrong side of the tracks, guess you have to build what you know.
This is my version of Downtown Deco’s Addams Ave Part III kit, it’s made from hydrocal (plaster) and comes with assorted signage and stuff that I opted not to use. Most of the detail parts I made and the decals are from my line. The fire escape is from Tichy, one of the ladders is from Central and the short roof pipe is from Walthers Roof Detail kit. Overall not a bad kit you just have to be careful since it’s plaster you could break it, best to glue it up with Epoxy and to prime it before painting. There is no building divider between the buildings, I used some foam board topped with masking tape. Hand painted in acrylics and sealed with flat clear sealer.
