Got back to work on this a bit.
I have all of the angled roof apron bits Installed.
Just need cleanup and painted.
I'll have to put white trim around all of the facade first.
Getting there !

The flat roof and gravel are a nice touch. Good luck moving forward Clay. How are the eyes?

Well, I have a lot of touching up to do on the facades and I hope I won't just make them worse (I have another shot in my right eyeball due next Tuesday. The first one helped, hope this one does also).
Meanwhile, I have been working more on the free standing Shell sign. I had to use some artistic license to place it on the base  but off of of the driveway .

This is on the reference photos, and I'm guessing that it's an air hose, so, that's what I'm going with. This is the last piece I'm making, so the next post will probably be in the NMA section.

Good to hear the injections seem to be working. The mods and admins might need to have a council meeting to see if 'dopping' is acceptable. LOL

That painted shell is awesome, this is looking good.
