:wow What a improvement Mike

Like the weathering and all the added detail, have you taken a close-up of the inside desk etc, as that looks the bees knees, Are you going to alter the ground around the sliding door to allow trucks etc to unload ?

Love that interior work, and the 'electricals'.

Will you be 'concreting' the track inside (that would take out the difference in angles too)?

Thanks very much for the comments, fellas. Good to hear from you BobK.

John B youre probably right about the colour of the door - I expect it would be blue - but I like the variety the current colour gives it.
Yes Alan I'll have to do some earthworks outside to make the vehicular access at least a little believable. I'll get a closer shot of the interior after I repaint the walls with something lighter.
ddolefin yes I will concrete the tracks with my old favourite water putty.

I've found some small cast metal smokestacks that my dear sister bought me a couple of years ago. Planning to add one to the wall of the upper level. Working on a clock too, and I have to come up with something for guttering and downpipes.
 The electrical details were fun to do. Thinking about adding just a bit more somewhere.

Mike

As an electrician I'm really impressed with the conduits and switch gear, I do hope they are all properly earthed!:mutley:mutley

Mike I really like the looks of the electrical boxes, could you perhaps take a bit closer picture of them. I know what the camera can do to close up pictures, truly I do, but I would still like to see more closely what you have accomplished there.

Thanks
Wayne

Now there's a product I'll bet only your Dad has ever thought of Mike. :pathead:pathead:pathead  Well done Mr Mike Snr. :thumbs  There must be dozens of potential uses for silver clad cardboard but I wonder if the "wax" coating on the outside would allow glueing. :hmm

This unit is looking really great Mike.  Everyone has already commented on how good the electrics look so, other than to agree with them, I won't repeat it.

I just love that faded colour on the sheeting and the rust stains - you really are turning out another "Mikes Masterpiece" but don't let me stop you - carry on,  I can't wait for the next installment. :cheers:cheers

Great stuff!

Personally I'd make a false mezzanine sticking out perhaps 1/2" on the wall you look at from the entrance, with a ladder leading up to it, lighten the wall below it and stick light coloured crates on the back wall of the mezzanine, as though it is normally approached from the 'other side' but ladder is a quick way up.....

Sorry Mike but that clock was at least 25 minutes slow.  You will need to rip it all out and start again. :twisted:

Terrific inspiration on those little details.

(There appears to be a First Class stamp missing from the desk).

The image of the desk and the light coming though the open door is just brilliant, it just needs a couple of workmen, and some crates etc laying around, and for me it will be the best inside photo of a working building that I have seen :thumbs
