Thank you Zak.
Start made on the front of one of the shops, bricks and tiles painted, the inner part of the roller door made and distressed just the outer parts of the door to add.

Thanks Zak.
Have found this old Letraset "word positioning system" in the loft and have given it a go. 
You put the Letraset  on the paper as normal. then put this on the clear tape and damp it down, this transfers the letters onto the clear tape. You then remove the wet paper leaving the Letraset on the clear tape, and rub the whole words down as normal.

It's really good what you have done so far. The shopping mal is coming along nicely. Is Horatio at the top of the stairs?

No Horatio at the moment Chris looking through the stock to find the correct 3 figures to go at the top of the stairs.

Some ideas for the Gin Palace window, with different colours and fonts.
The top is printed on paper and the bottom one is a trial on acetate, before you ask it did not work, my printer is not the type for this so will try and hand colour or just put the acetate on top of the printed sheet.
