It looks terrific Max and a very solid build as well. I made a start on a low relief warehouse but made a bit of a pigs ear of it. The detailing in these downloadable buildings is really good though and I will make another attempt at some point.

I have the industrial unit which is really impressive.


Anyway, carry on it will be the Bee's knee's once it's finished.

Cheers

Toto

Thanks, Toto.  I have to be careful not to use to much "Corporate" downloading as the projects are to qualify for my Structures Certificate in the NMRA Master Modellers' degree.

They will accept the use of printed brick papers for example, but won't accept anything which could be construed as a "kit."

I thought Sol was one of the judges Max. :roll:  He MUST need a carpet doctor on the cheap ......................:lol::lol::lol:

I think you are probably right about the window cills being a tad overscale.  Once they're muckied up, they will probably disappear - that's where all the crud would land so they were usually very grubby. :thumbs

A degree no less ......... Go yourself. I did not realise ther was such a thing. Unfortunately mines is in Building Economics & Quantity Surveying ......... A bit boring in comparison. I'm sure you will fly through ........ With honours........ Good luck.

Cheers

We don't do things that way in the NMRA, Peter.

I call the Master Modeller a degree because I can't think of a better name for it.  It is at least as challenging.  I've been working on mine for several years now and I have secured three of the seven required Certificates.

The Structures Certificate will make number four. I hope I will achieve it before the end of the year.

On the way I have achieved the Hopkins/Bone Award for service to the hobby and I hope to receive my Golden Spike - maybe within six months.  Neither of these carry points for the MMR, but I value them nonetheless.

I know from past experience (what other kind is there?), that the NMRA is an anathema to British modellers; so I shouldn't have referred to it.  I deserve to be mocked.  ;-)

The windows have been barred and the whole unit is being weathered with powders.



The inside lights and the security lights are on separate circuits as ultimately all lights in all buildings - and yard lights, will be controlled by decoders.  That will allow the Railroad & Co software to switch the lights on appropriately as darkness decends.

Another qulity build Max. Very nice warehouse and I like the yellow interior lights and the white exterior security lights. The yellow interior lights help make the windows look a little 'grotty' from what goes on inside. :thumbs

Cheers, Gary.

Thanks, Gary.  I CA glued tissue paper on the inside of the panes as well.

They are short lengths of styrene tubing slipped over white high intensity LEDs, Peter.

Excellent Max. I'm sure you could come up with a way where the lights come on as the available light in the room changes. Like they do with street lights. Good work anyway. It looks great.

Thanks, Mick. 

The whole layout is controlled by Railroad & Co software, which should be able to control the down lights over the plank.

Theoretically, the total operation should run continuously.  The decoders for all of the buildings are planned as sound decoders, which will switch the lights on and off, as well as playing sounds appropriate for that building.

The down lights are 12 Volt, so it should be fairly simple to fade them up and down with the software.

OK.  So this is how it looks in situ.



Sorry about the photo.  My skills have deserted me for the present.  :oops:

Here's one with the lights off (daytime).  :lol:



Cheers

Good One Max,
  It must look good in a darkened room with only the layout lights on. Very atmospheric I would imagine as your eye would be drawn to the lighted areas.
