Thanks all! :thankyousign:

I've now put the office where it's going to go & fitted some lighting inside it..



I'm pleased with the lighting in there & I think it makes a big difference having an interior in there rather than it just being empty.

Still loads to do, buildings to construct & lighting to make.

Cheers, Stu.

Nice Stu, very nice! I especially like the glare coming through the front entrance and shining outside.

A nice touch to blend the office block in could be some scrub against the front wall (good technique to mask any gaps between ground and building), or perhaps a small wall to provide a walkway around the building, demarking the office from perhaps a car park infront.

Of course it's your baby so you do whatever you see fit. Nice work and thanks once again for sharing it with us.

Cheers, yes I will probably put some grass around the base & maybe a wall around it when its in its final position, I will do that once all the buildings, fences etc are in place & I'm happy with them & I can see what space I have to play with.

cheers, Stu.

Great! Sorry, just my thoughts running ahead of what's achievable in a day. If you looked at my layout thread I'm sure you could pick out 1001 things that need to be done.

I know you'll make a good job of it Stu and I look forward to following the progress.

Cheers

The interiors look great with the lighting, even at a distance.  :thumbsup:

Great work as usual, Stu :thumbsup:
One thing you might want to consider as Cridmore Yard is a bit 'neglected' is to have the odd cracked or even holed window. It's something I saw on a layout at the Preston Show and looked very effective :hmmm:

Stu, not that I'm a big fan of them in real life (who is?) but some mobile phone masts on the roof might be a nice touch. Trying to think what else goes on the top of office buildings, hmmm, satellite dishes perhaps.

All just suggestions to throw into the mix for you. Question is, we're mobile phones in use during the time period of your layout? Errrr, no.

Just be on the lookout for Newport"Banksy"Nobby ... he might be up to no good with a spray can!  ;D

Or breaking office windows!  :D :P :smiley-laughing:

The layout is based around late 1970's to about 1989-90 so don't think mobile phone masts would be suitable. Thank you for the ideas & suggestions though  :thumbsup:

cheers, Stu.

Righty ho Stu, yes, mobile phone masts might not be in keeping with the era then (they were all the rage with the yuppies in the 80's - remember the ones that came with a rucksack for the battery  ;D but I doubt the country would have been peppered with masts like today). Maybe have a look in your local town or photographs to get some ideas on what else could go atop a building (TV aerials, masts etc.) it would really add something IMO, but it's my opinion only, as you know.

Now that Mckellar yard building in the corner, is that scalescenes (card kit?) What are your thoughts on them? I'm thinking of using scalescenes and modelrailwayscenery kits on Ledgington, but all low relief (less that 10mm protruding). This yard would protrude too much but they have other great looking stuff.
