Pantiles extension.


About fifteen hours into the build and, as yet, no change of ideas thus making Plan B redundant  but, there's time yet !


Allan


This will sit up against the right hand gable end of the main building and, if it's not too happy there, then there's always the left. Failing either and it'll end up in the graveyard out in the shed.

Hi Stephen.


The base is Evergreen tile sheets glued over 3mm MDF.

The Pantiles extension finished.

It could have butted up tight to the main building but it would have meant some dangerous hacking about so I left a small alley way between the two buildings.


This lot was build in about 9 days but it was long on hours and short on coffee !


Anyway, here's the finished job spread over two posts and if you have any questions, just fire away.


Allan.

The reason why I spread the pictures out over two posts I found out that if you try and upload too many pictures the post times out and then I loose it.


Anyway, here's the rest.

Guess what ? We've expanded on those Pantiles once again !

The model now stretches to over 4ft and, realistically, doesn't represent the protoype faithfully to any noticeable degree if, indeed, it represents it at all !


I seemed to have got carried away with all the character that was built into the original and in consequence spent two weeks trying to capture it in plastic, cardboard  and glue and probably failed miserably on all counts if you compare it to the actual and  captured it if you don't !


Anyway, here's a few pictures taken indoors for once as it was raining in Immingham, the Riviera of the North East !

Thanks Max.

It'll probably gather dust, spiders and moth skins outside in the shed.

You ran out of 'O' rings for the 4th section? 
See we are paying attention :lol:

Lovely work as always, truly inspirational and one of these days I'll have a go at using some of your techniques.


After I've bought shares in Evergreen that is :roll: :mutley

Cheers

Marty

I forgot to slip the 'O' rings down the columns again Marty before I glued them in so I'm going to have to split them again.

As will probably come as no surprise, I'm extending them even further after which I will seek therapy !

The above building is now finished but I've yet to photograph it as a commission suddenly got in the way - a station that's now finished all bar the shouting - so 'll take some pictures later.

Allan.

Blimey that is really something, Allan. Your work leaves me amazed. Didn't think anyone would notice? You could sell custom made buildings for a handsome price, sir.
