Default Ben's Pawn and Loan Office

Hello Howqua

I've been away for a long time. So sorry to hear about Shamus but I'm glad that Qube is continuing the tradition.

I'm posting one of many models that I've completed over the past few years. It is in HO. I would be happy to answer any questions about its construction.

Thanks for viewing.

Is that a 4 or 5 string banjo in the window? (You said any question...) Seriously - beautiful work.

Howqua: Your name is the only one I recognize. Not like the 'good old days,' but the site has a nice, new, slick look to it. I'll be around from time to time posting and commenting.

Rick: Thanks for the kind words. I'm not sure whether it is 4 or 5 string but I'll bet the 5 string is more expensive. You'll have to ask Ben about that.

Beautiful small building! And a lot of nice details. Do you scratchbuild it all?
My focus in the MR hobby is mostly to the buildings, but my only experience in scratchbuilding is a house in 0-scale, H0 must be much more difficult.

Oddvar: Most of what I build is scratchbuilt although to save time and frustration I might, in some cases. add a kit part. Yes, of course, depending on age (eyesight problems), I think HO building is more difficult.

There's so much detail there adding up to an outstanding model.
One question: is the guttering and downpipe also scratchbuilt? if so how?

I'm thinking that with so many instruments in Ben's window the local musicians must be having a hard time.

SimonC: Thanks for the kind words.

The downpipe is made with aluminum pipe and thin slices of tape as straps to hold it to the wall.
