Hardware store and adjoining building
A hardware store and a similar style building next to it. The side of the hardware store with the tiles is actually my first attempt at this weathering effect. I am really happy with it. These two buildings fall within the 'older, industrial section of my in-progress layout. The last picture is a 'view from a tiller' shot I decided to take.

Quoting Andy D This is amazing! You are my favorite builder on here. May I ask what pieces you used for the weathered wall for the outer layer and inner layer? I see that the outer layer sticks out a little further, but it only looks like it sticks out just a little bit. I can't figure out how you did it, and it's driving me crazy! Great work. :)
Thanks, Andy. That side wall effect seems to perplex many people but it is really simple: The wall is two studs thick. On the areas where the 'exposed brick effect' is, the inner row of studs in the wall is a 1x4 brick with studs on the side. Affixed to the studs on the side is a layer of plates and then a layer of tiles (facing out) which creates the subtle indentation and the brick work effect. Might be tough to understand in writing, but the piece that makes it all work is the 1x4 brick with stud on the side. Hope this is helpful!

I just said I'd love to come over and see your urban landscape, I just saw all your stuff from the my creations view. I changed my mind I will bring food and a pillow and blanket and sleep in the hall, I'll need a week and at last 4 8mb memory cards! I am a linguist and I am tongue tied and cannot find a descriptive word to tell you how much I am in love with you and your work! God is Good!

If it was not already obvious, these realistic building prove that you are the master at portraying urban grit in LEGO!

You have a unique style - there's a clean simplicity underlying the grit and detail that drives the realism in your models.

Jonathan, this is a great example of your amazing building technique. The weathering effect on the side of the hardware building is just perfect. Regards, Eric.

Wow... great work on this build... I think the "weathering" on the side of the building could be a little more random, but the technique itself is nothing short of amazing. Great work.
