Here is a newsstand I built for my 1940s N scale city -- scratch built from strip and sheet styrene with printed details and awning added. The newspapers on the bench are individually folded papers.

Very nice work. Showing it with that bottle of paint as a size reference really shows how difficult it is to add that level of detail in N scale.
