New Building...Amercian Hardware Supply

Greetings Blog Followers,

This past week I was able to paint and assemble a new building for the New York Central Train Layout. The building is a Walther's Cornerstone background structure. Background structure meaning that the building is shallow, has no rear walls and meant to be placed against the back of the layout. The building is marketed as "River City Textiles" but the kit included decals for other names including American Hardware Supply. Here are a few photos...

A close up shot of American Hardware Supply. The building was brush painted using hobby acrylics. The doors and water tank were spray painted with standard rattle cans.  

The American Hardware Supply sign is a decal supplied with the kit. The decal sheet however was damaged upon receipt and the additional decals for the building were ruined. The manufacturer's customer service has been contacted and a new sheet of decals are on the way.  

A 50' Boxcar ready for loading has been spotted in front of the building

American Hardware Supply is now ready for additional decals, weathering and final layout placement.
