Yep advice installed within brain.

I have used PVA and Varnish before but only for a canal and a pond, so it didn't take many layers, its the ripples that I am after.

Nice weathering on the brake van too.

Is that a Sherman 'funny' Jim ?

Does it come as a kit or did you have to adapt one?


Ed

PS Sure I recognise the 25pounder with limber, didn't know they still made it.

The Sherman is a lot as a mine clearance vehicle although I did cut off all the plastic moulded chains and changed to proper chains which rock ages cutting each length of chain but the finished result is most pleasing

so i have decided that as i have a few days off work i would make a start on some buildings.



i decided that the first one i would tackle would also be the scenic break.



i started off by making a cardboard template, i'm used to building little stone cottages so the sheer size of this confused me but i'm fully aware that factory buildings are not small.



once i had the template, i started off cutting the rear and side wall (the ones you will never be able to see) out of 3mm ply wood for strength and also i had some laying around.



the front walls where built using wills plastic card.






next onto some paint, now i have never built a brick built building i always work in stone so like the water in my harbour this is very new to me. i practiced on lots of off cuts until i was happy with the finish. it actually looks better in natural light than it does with the flash on the camera.








i then moved onto the windows which are very thin wood already cut purchased from a online auction site. i am really pleased with these windows. they have been painted and installed just awaiting glazing.



then finally for now i moved onto the sliding door for the workshop. i built the doors using very thin balsa wood and the runners using evergreen scrap angle left over from another project.






so this is where i have got to, what do you think so far.

Looking good Ron.

Nice tight work on the edges and windows.

The bottom door runner needs to be recessed into the ground doesn't it? Or maybe put in a floor inside and a ramp outside.

Otherwise it'll be a. It of an impediment to traffic!

Cheers

Marty
