well i have finished it!!! all i have to do is paint it. here are some pictures of it. i hope you like it and are impressed by my work. all this was done by pictures counting bricks and mathamatical guess work. the hoods are slightly different to the "original" !!!

it will be a work of perfection when it is painted and has windows in it as well.

maybe i should start to do this for a living!!! anyone want buildings doing? there will be a small charge though :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

i use model glue that is used for aircraft etc it is the one with the brush in the small jar. I think it is Levell glue.

ahh that will be the shinyness of it when the flash went off. it is actually clear but when the flash went off it made it reflect off the glue causing it to look white.

well i have painted it. in brick red, it is a lil bit darker than what it was, the roof was done in grey to represent the corragated roofing after a bit of time of weathering. the loading platform was done in dark grey all i have to do now is paint the inside of the building.

I will post some pictures of it soon.

Hi Ian

By 'eck, what a cracker! It looks like a job very well done. Look forward to seeing the paint job a bit later :D

Have you thought about what level of weathering you will be applying to it?

Cheers fella, keep it up!

These are the very latest pictures off the press (so to speak)!!

I think it looks alot better now that there is no shiny glue when the flash goes off.

So what do you all think???

Hi Ian

I'd stick with the same shade for now, though it might be an idea to make it a thin coat! Then you can create the weathered colour variances to suit. Certainly looks good so far though :)

Cheers

Looking good - that's quite an ambitious project for scratch building and you've done well.

In answer to your question - I'd be inclined to give it a spot of weathering, a thin wash of sooty-grey and little dry-brushing here and there perhaps ?

all i have got to do now is get some windows for it, then it be complete. i may put a spot of green/brown here and there to represent moss growing.

Doing a great job there!
Look forward to seeing it finished.
Have you thought about finishing the inside in a different colour? Lots of these type of buildings sometimes get a coat of "off white" (cream) washed over the walls!
Also Ratio do some great gutters and drain pipes.
