As I said before Mike really nice work.  I have started using Brassmasters windows with my scalescenes kits they look even better.  Trouble is I tried to order a load of them before Christmas and my emails went unanswered...   :veryangry:

Jon Wiffen (Scalescenes) has stated that he intends to make his own pre printed windows this year.  That means we will be able to have white window frames which will be an improvement on the black.  Meanwhile I have 3 x rows of 12 terraces all with the origanal black framed windows and I think they look fine.

Oh love the use of the "second hand" items out on the pavement.

Some days its just not worth gnawing through the straps.

Thanks for your kind words Jerry.
I will be eternally grateful to Nick for introducing me to Scalescenes after I bought some of his low relief buildings. I tried one, and immediately scrapped nearly all my plastic ones! I don't like Metcalfe, especially the flat one piece roofs, they look awful, and you see them on virtually every exhibition layout.
I'm now starting to gain a bit of confidence, enough to kitbash them a bit to make them look slightly different, less like a kit.

This factory/warehouse/mill/whatever is going to take even longer than I thought!
I was planning on building it 1.5 times longer than the basic model, with an extra floor level. It has taken me three x half days work just to build the floors and roof, with all the floor joists and supports there are to do. Now I have had a measure up and realised that I am going to need an EXTRA three floors for it to do the cover-up job that I need :(
I have already printed about 30 pages of parts, I am going to need a lot, lot more for the complicated wall sections......
Oh well, it will keep me out of mischief I guess.
Without a doubt, the most complicated build I have attempted to date.
I would have loved to have built it L shaped, but I think that would be a bridge too far  :smiley-laughing:
