Small Shop Box - 1/24th scale

What a bad blogger I am, I can't believe it is a month since I last posted here. I have been really busy but I don't seem to have too much to show for it. Now the kids are on holiday and between keeping them happy and sorting out orders there's not much time left.

I have only done a little more on the caravan so I will save the update until I have more to show. I have also been working on a couple of shop boxes which I will be adding to my online shop, hopefully in time for Christmas sales.

This shop box I have had in a box on a shelf for quite a few years an it is really good to finally see it getting some attention. It is 1/24th scale and I will be selling it empty so I want to keep the shop type option fairly open so the buyer can decide the type of shop but I am trying to aim for a Victorian look.

After an undercoat of white paint and a base paint of a mortar colour, I used brick stencils from Bromley crafts to add brick work to the front and 2 sides. I used masking tape to mask off the areas where the door and window frames would go and the moulding above the front.

I have now added windows and done some painting so will get some fresh pictures today and post another update asap, hopefully before another month has passed.


  1. Hello Angela, thanks for visiting and following my blog :)

    I'm interested to know what you think of the Bromley stencil system, was it easy to work with?

  3. Hello Norma, Sorry for the delay. I have added a video I found on You Tube to my next post. They make it look "very easy", I found it "fairly easy".
