I am very interested in seeing your method of doing the row of shops. Thanks.
I have always wanted to make some myself for Singapore or other Asian settings.

Oh sorry meant to say "the method" rather than yours. ::) the pictures you have posted are enough of a hint, thanks.

Rows of shops  or  three storey buildings are more difficult to plan and to get the proportions right, especially Chinese structures

Just great builds.  Beautiful.

 Now, for "filler" shop/tenement street rows, I found a couple systems to crank out good looking stuff quick and easy. 

 Ill find my massive Peking stuff pics and post said (hurricane "Whatever/Postponed Hurricanes vs CrimiNoles game storm?" in Sept. 2016 made me box and secure whole project when 99% done)    Probably should give the 50+ buildings and @500 painted, based figs to someone who promises to use 'em?  Anyone do 15mm?

Trying to find accessories to enhance the project especially interiors is quite difficult, I have been liaising with a contact in USA and now eagerly await the arrival of some 3D Chinese furniture.
I preview it here and when it arrives hopefully it will fit in scale wise, and I will be able to show it next to a Gringos40 or Steve Barber Models figure!

Are the files available for the furniture? I have some Vietnam buildings I would like to enhance.
Cheers,

They were drawn for me and printed in the USA, I am getting a trial set to check true scale, I am assured  they are 28mm . I am hoping they will arrive by next week.

Just to advise you guys the next build has just started, here is an initial taster, as with most of the builds it may adapt over time

Excellent, is there any further news on the furniture. I could really use an ox yoke chair or two.
