Manufacturing Warehouse Shadowbox Update

Definitely the darker (can't tell from the pics if that is black or a date brown). The blue is just too bright for me and looks out of place on a warehouse - more a color for a Victorian painted lady!!! 

Look forward to seeing your products in person at York next week.

Paul-

I look forward to seeing you next week, also. I have another poll going on my social page. That vote is four gray to two blue so far.  We also have a window and door set for the first floor that gives the building a storefront look. Perhaps the blue goes well with that scheme and the gray goes with the warehouse scheme. If I can pull it off, I'll make versions of both facia colors and the buyer can select at the time of purchase.

We use primarily Benjamin Moore paints. The gray for the facia is one tone darker than gray for the windows on the same chip.

I will also have a new item for shadowbox buyers- thin magnetic strip and complimenting metal strip. Each have peal and stick tape on the back for easy application. You put the metal strip on your layout and then place the shadowboxes on top. They stay upright, are secure short of a Level 5 earthquake and can be moved from one strip to another.

 

Last interaction of color studies. A darker gray will be used for the fascia, and first floor windows and doors for the warehouse version. A lighter blue/gray will be used for the retail version. The windows and doors on the retail version are "streetscape" style versus "warehouse-like". There will be five or less of each version available at York......

I will have a number of the 3- and 4-story shadowboxes, available initially in 1-, 2- and 3- piece sets.

WH-1 is modeleled after a Union Pacific trackside warehouse that was 2-stories, the first with a loading dock. There may be a couple of this original shadowbox available as single-piece sets. I also will have WH-1 available in 3- and 4-story sets, with and without the loading dock. Brick color and window styles & colors are varied between the different versions.

WH-2 is modeled after a concrete warehouse. They are all the same textured concrete color. This time there is a twist. We have produced alternate window styles that take the standard 4 over 4 window framing and fill 1, 2 or 3 of the courses with either brick or concrete block. You will also be able to choose between clear and translucent glazing. I  will be able to customize your model with a variation of these window styles while you shop elsewhere. 

All WH-1 and WH-2 shadowboxes can also have building names applied- as you shop elsewhere. Please plan to allow me several hours to complete the customizing as 1. It takes a little time and 2. I hope there are interruptions!

There will be 1" wide magnetic  and metal strip available. This is a great product to hold the shadowboxes in place while allowing the flexibility of moving them around from place to place on your layout. It is low profile, about .045" in total. You apply the metal strip to the layout and magnetic strip to the bottom of the shadowbox.

I will also have an array of laser cut window kits, letters fonts and sizes and bench kits. Random items will include smaller- scale brass etched fencing, Nichiban masking tape and Excel Hobby Blades knife kits.

That sounds great Doug. I'll have to be sure to make you my first stop on Thursday. I have a perfect open spot of a WH-1D-2 and a 1E-1... probably won't have time for customized signage though due to two wonky knees - can't stay on my feet too long these days!!!

Thanks.
