You are a magician. As the others have said in some pictures it looks so real. Well done and please keep inspiring us.

I like the abandoned factory a lot Allan. The things I like are the attention to detail, like the roller shutter door falling apart. Great work as always!

Thought I'd explain how the broken windows were modelled.

The backs of the windows were sprayed with carpet adhesive ( candy floss in a tin ! ) which ends up everywhere but, in this case, to good advantage.

Next a very thin film of  clear packing plastic, as used for example for packing Scalelink Windows, which is laid across the glue then when set, turned over and the odd one or two panes cut out.

The semi clear nature of the plastic combined with the transparent overspray of the carpet adhesive results in typically dirty factory windows.

And how did I discover this ? Two things. Desperation and luck !
Allan.

And a not so derelict factory.

This was meant to be a creamery but could be anything.

Beautiful models.  :thumbs

The derelict factory is amazing. From the broken panes of glass, the delapidated roller doors to the decaying timber piles, it is what I would call attention to detail. As for the creamery, it certainly could be mistaken for a photoshopped images.

Cheers, Gary.
