What, no kiosk?! The reception kiosk of our Carnation Cafe' has been removed and will be relocated. The process for removing it is the same I employed with the removal of the piano from the Coke Refreshment Corner project. Our Carnation Cafe' piece required realigning of the sidewalk edge in order for the storefronts to be parallel to Main Street. The edge was corrected by adding strips of styrene and then sanding to the proper angle. Also, the sidewalk needed to be raised towards the Penny Arcade end to keep the curb somewhat even along the entire edge of this piece. Styrene strips were again added and then sanded to the correct contour. Auto body filler was then used to fill and blend the sidewalk level from the storefronts to the new curb edge. Once this was sanded, the sidewalk was now ready for the adding of details like the fireplug, tree gratings, and gas lamp base. The hole shown here is for the gas lamp installation while the X marks the location for a tree to be planted.
