This building is part of a set of buildings that I have created as the urban portion for my N-Scale model railroad. The set includes 5 buildings from the east side of Osborne Street Village which is located in Winnipeg, Canada (my home town).
The Village permeates an artsy vibe and features some of the city’s best live music dive bars and watering holes, along with more restaurants than one can imagine. All along the main strip you’ll find swish and bohemian shopping, jewellers, cooking supply stores, a record store with a sweet collection of vinyl, yoga studios, and a gem of a theatre that is known for comedy.
In 2012 the Canadian Institute of Planners named it Canada’s Greatest Neighbourhood – and for good reason.
Building #1 is the Courtyard Building which sits at the corner of Osborne Street and River Avenue. It is a keystone building of the village. Notice the clock up on it's peak.
Osborne Street Village Set:
I always use a fairly wide brim an larger structures such as this to help prevent warping on the corners.
Remove brim and have fun painting.
