Lisa O LuLaRoe
Posted by chocho willy on Monday, January 01, 2018 3:05 PM

   Early in the summer I wanted to make buildings that represented my friends and children I had previously made a Texaco station for my son "Barn" and a mower business for my son Michael. Barn's Texaco is because he is well known for having good gas, enough said, and Michael has a lawn maintenance business and when young his brother "Barn" couldn't say Brian (given name) so he called him MIKEMO. I will post pictures on that later when I take a few more pictures. So as talking them In order it was my daughters turn. Lisa is a RN and sells Lula Roe on the side. The building when I got it was in pieces and all 4 walls were detached, But it had a nice store front look to it, so after cleaning it up, regluing the walls(it is concrete) repainting and making a roof for it, it was ready for details. Bought a Lula roe stick-on decal and added it to a styrene sheet for the header, vertical letters from a sign shop. Then made a shadow box window and copied some colorful pictures of Lula roe material on to cardstore frontstore litesolar panel stock and sealed in a laminating envelope to keep moisture out, left the top of the show box open to allow light to enter and show the goods. I believe this was the 2nd building that I lite with Wal-Mart $.98 solar path lights. Fun build and sure tickled my daughter

I payed $6.95 for that light, bought one to see how it looks on my buildings. If it looks good I'll get 13 more. Nice looking building, look forward to seeing more. Jose Silva G Scale

 Yea Jose they work great and can't beat the price, if you are at all electrically minded you dan also take them appart and just remote locate the solar panel like i did on the "Little Brown Church" it's a little work but on the church I needed to add a light in the vestibule area as that piko build has no opening between the church and the vestibule. You can also add a led to the ciruit and it might be a little dimmer but it makes the batter last about 25% longer. Of course the easies is just cutting a 1 3/4" hole with a whole saw and clean up the edge with a pen knive and seal it with silcone from the end side. I have also done some with 2 batteries if I'm using some thing that takes alot of bulbs like "girl at the top of the stairs". probable need to redue some of the first posts as at the time I didn't know how toput pictures in properly and it upset some as they had to open a web site to see them. Barn's Texaco there are 4 leds 2 in the stars and 1 each in the building and pump area, Hop that helps, send some pictures, Thanks Bill
