Ok in between shuttling to and from the Hospital...no Nobby, not A&E. I have been busily building the scalescenes office block. A tad modern for my layout but I need something to hide the canal as it flows out of town.

The first pick shows the full 13 storey with the second section built as half relief but unfinished. One look at this monster made me reduce it down to the basic 7 storey but full sized. Overall this has taken about 60 hours to build.






It will be moved to its final position when I finish the canal.

There is a law in the UK entitled 'Right to Light', and I think the poor buggers behind that flock of bats would be quite right in protesting :goggleeyes:

I'm sure glad you scaled that down.... you don't realise just how big these things are in real life, but they seem way too big as a model. The scaled down version looks heaps better.

It's sorta like model trees... we often model them undersize - real trees are big.. but it's a matter of what looks right, I reckon.

Either way, you've done a great job on the structure.

I'm just wondering... if it's only a canal going off scene, why does the building need to be that big?  :confused2:

That's an impressive build Jerry. I think it would look imposing and impressive as the full height version where there are some other tall structures, but the shorter version is excellent and more in keeping with your skyline.

Very impressive it does show how big real buildings are and how n gauge are scaled down I think.
I like scalescenes buildings I am just building the large station and looking at it seem to a smaller than you might expect but still fits into layout

I suspect if we built most structure full size there would no room for trains

I've just built the winding head for my model of Beamish colliery. I must admit it does look blooming big!

It's on page 10 of my construction thread:

http://www.ngaugeforum.co.uk/SMFN/index.php?topic=18410.135

I'm having fun at the moment making all the stilts that it stands on, the winding gear and loads of steps and walkways. On earlier pages there is a picture of the original.

Unfortunately there is going to be a brief pause in construction as Mrs W wants to go off again on the caravan.

Hi all  :wave:

After having a think about the look I have in mind for my new layout, I had a bit of a spending spree on the Scalescenes website  :hmmm:
I did end up spending around 40  :o
But at least I have nearly all that I want for the layout  :hmmm:

So here are a few of the kits that I have built so far  :hmmm:





And the next two have been put together for "proof of concept" and if I decide to use them they will be built to a higher standard





And there are plenty more to come  :doh:

One thing I would add is DO NOT try to save a few pence and buy Asda's own PVA glue sticks to build these models with  :hmmm:
As it is rather variable in its sticking power and releases if "Rocket card glue" gets anywhere near it  :headbutt: :veryangry2:

 :beers:

dave  :thumbsup:

They look very good indeed, Dave :thumbsup:
I think I'd have to replace the door on the goods shed with something a bit more 3 dimensional, though :hmmm:
