Who you Gonna Call? Hobby Lobby… I wrote that…


Here I took a sheet of 1/2" foamboard removed the paper (both sides so it lays flat) and traced a pre-graphed scale drawing of the front of the Movie GhostBusters Firehouse. I went back over with a sharpened pencil and traced all of my graph work scoring the foamboard with the pencil. once the entire surface detail was established I started to built out with the ledges and cut out he windows. Then I primed the whole piece and used the window knockouts as patterns to cut out my window panes from 1/4" foamboard (adhesive on one side to later attach the plastic for windows)

Once primed I laied in my dirty brick red and saved enough for the door (cardstock) The window panes were spray painted black and then the plastic was applied… THEN i masked of the lower parts and sprayed the plastic to black out the top panes. Now of course I know I left out one HUGE detail but I'm working on that.


Thanks for looking!! I plan to put a step by step WIP series on my blog spot: TheGeekSummit

Thank you all very much. I would have loved to do the entire building but as you can tell this hardly fits the standard Target $29 bookshelf as it is. I appreciate all the comments!

Absolutely amazing, it's near perfect. Just needs the neon sign, and the little banner above the door. "You don't think it's too subtle, Marty? You don't think people are going to drive down and not see the sign?"

Yeah, I'm still working on the sign part… Don't know if I'd to a lit version or not… banner?

The banner was that long white banner that read "ghost busters". It was like it was announcing their grand opening! It might have been in only one scene?
