Yeah, looks more like professional architectural modelling rather than hobby stuff!

 Hello all.

Today i am starting a new project : A glass and steel building

To start the construction a was needing  ...  tinted glass.

After two week of research, i have found the way to do that :  tinted glas film for tunning cars applyed on clear styrene sheet from evergreen.

Quite simple when you have found this way but some technics needed to aplly the film. Glad if the Tip can help someone.

Here is a video of the tip. Sorry it's in french but you will see clearly how it work's :

I also have made an acces rampe in styrene for the tramway station :





To be continued ...

Thank you very much for taking the time to make this excellent, detailed video. Your scenery is superb. The realistic (multi-shaded) grass and vegetation and rocks look highly realistic. I look forward to watching progress on the extension.

More strips .030 have been put together (46 pieces in this structure)



Here you can see the face verticaly with the entrance :



Starting the structure "Heavy Duty" whitch hold the buiding. It is composed of horizontal .080 sqare strips and vertical 3/16"  H columns. At this point there is 27 pieces on this heavy structure (73 part for the total face).



Some details. The ajustments betwin the light and the heavy structure need to be very precise.



Tomorrow i will start the reinforcement parts. To be continued ...

Thank you 

Here is the construction of the base of the building: the base has got 2 levels with a ramp and a stair between the two.
It's realized in 2mm thick styrene sheet for hardness.



The future concrete is engraved with wide rectangles at 45 of angle.



Realization of the stairs. Stairs are difficult to realize because the size of the steps need to be very precise to looks good. Here the steps are adjusted at 1/10th mm:
