Hi all,

Basic painting and weathering of the box is now complete. Stairs and detailing still to be done...

Stairs have been cobbled together using Plastruct stairs, micro strip, plasticard and some Slaters brick sheet. The photo cruley shows up the mismatch between the Slaters and Peco brick as well as the slight misalignment of the stairs - I might have a go at redoing these in the future using an etch. However for the moment they will serve. Stairs are not yet attached to the box and a slight amount of fettling is required to get everything sitting level. The base is simply a couple of layers of 0.75mm ABS sheet with a hole cut into the top layer to accept rodding etc (when I think I'm insane enough to tackle this!). The base has simply been painted with Tamiya 'Earth Brown' which was subsequently attacked with some Humbrol 'Soot' weathering powders.



I think I'm going to have to make some kind of plinth for the brick stair support to sit on....
