Looks like the local paint warehouse with all that Humbrol inside... ;-) 

Then again, looking at the last pic you posted, it could be the local lock-up ! :lol:  Looking forward to watching this one develop.

Cheers, Gary.

Slightly cheating - using windows from Scalescenes diesel depot - the D&S is a frugal private railway anyway !!

I like the idea of your latest building Ron
"A Farm & Fuel depot - with possible deadly chemicals inside"
Can you get, or did they use, "Dangerous Chemical" signs I wonder?
Keep them coming please.

If you were modelling current day, you would be prosecuted for having fuel and chemicals in the same store. Lucky for you it ain't 2015 on the D & S ! :lol:

Roofing slowly progressing.. timber ends are strips overlaid to represent cladding - a door to allow access to the flat roof which will have a water tank on it.

Near the previous building will be another build - Devan Carpet Co Depot & this is the footprint


brown brick & a tiled roof.

No such thing as a straight forward unit  -  with curved platform & angled walls

Good One Ron :thumbs
In my experience....which doesn`t mean much:roll:...I can`t recall ever seeing other model railways where the buildings are really made to suit the site, as would be done with the real thing when you think about it. I mean you see low relief mods to squeeze them into a tight space and modifications in general, however your buildings are different.....they are actually made to suit / fit the site.
So for me, that`s quite a refreshing approach to buildings, when you come across someone thinking outside the box as it were.?
Dare to be different Ron.......I like that...:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

Well done Ron........I`ll notify the O.H & S....they`ll give you a clean bill of health now.
And Ron??.....Tell that forklift driver to put the blades on the deck when the fork is unattended....thanks mate.:thumbs




I see your roof is coming along. Do you just take a stab at the pitch of the roof and go with what looks right or are you working off a prototype from somewhere.????

forklift - not sure it that model allows the blades tit on the deck  so I better put a driver on it!  ( Job #875)

Roof pitch , just so it looks right.
