After a bit of cladding, I have laid out the final section of the Colony 87 shop front. This bit took me a few attempts, but happy with it now. I have a robot junk shop and a street lawyer’s hab/office. These are using a few bits from the upcoming KS. Also found the perfect canopy for the general store from a bag of ancient bits - originally from a GW tank I think.

Nicely done Karl. Looking forward to seeing them painted & the Kickstarter later in the year.  8)

I've used EMA reliably in the past:

Be warned; looking around the site can be expensive, acquiring all the shiney bits you didn't realise you needed.  :D

A dangerous place indeed :)

Nice clutter  8)

The canopy is from the dozer 'blade' of the IG tanks.

Noodle Bar painted. Prefer a minimal colour palette, so worked off a grey base with a primary colour, to let the colour in the detail pop. Lots of weathering fun too. A few bits to touch up, but pretty much done.

Damn that is sweet. Really great work, I do enjoy a retro vibe inserted into sci-fi :)

Superb job hiding the MDF skeleton too, I'd not have guessed that was the base model.

Fantastic, so inspiring. Can’t wait to see the parade of shops finished too, and really looking forward to the C87 Kickstarter!

Thanks for the sharing all this, including the WIP shots, the roof texturing has certainly got my brain juices flowing for where I can steal/apply the technique. Cheers!
