Looking good  :thumbsup: Sorry If I've missed it but what's the length of this beast?
Alex, not very big really.  285mm long x 105mm wide x 75mm high  not including the stack. ;D

Upper level  just finished. Curved corners next to fit (the bit I'm not looking forward to).

Auxiliary building that I scratch built is 170mm x 95mm x 50mm high.

A few more shots. The white sheet is a sheet of A4 to give an indication of size for those who cant visualize the dimensions in mm. ;D

View looking down on roof.

Other shots are the two levels not yet stuck together.
















Wires for the LEDs in the upper level pass between the two center supports.

Still got the stack to finish .

No more updates till stack secured and the 2 levels are one piece.

Really annoyed with myself, thought I had cracked it with this build.
Had to wait till it was dark to fully test the interior lighting. 60% happy, there is a bit of light bleed from the edges of the roof. Will try and cure it
The curved ends could have been a couple of mm taller but I shall live with that, the only other option would have been file down the arched walls. Not the easiest task as everything had been covered with the detail covers.

Overall will give my self 7/10 for this one.
Pictures after I have tried to cure the light bleed tomorrow.

Final pictures.  Just need to sort out baseboard and plant structures etc  for the final effect.








Lights do not show up very well in daylight.

Walkway fits fine.  More brick stacks on order.

Excellent piece of work Mike.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This has inspired me to have another go at the main building for my wagon works.

A major bit of work nicely done.

Hope you'll post a few pics with the lights on, once the sun's gone down.

Think I may have cured the light bleed apart from a couple of tiny places.





 
The above pictures were taken with no flash,just the internal LEDs.

Going to be a challenge to  model complete with the narrow gauge link as well

Looks like total footprint of brickworks plus clay pit will be 860 x 300mm  excluding std gauge sidings which have still to be decided.
The narrow gauge line is going to be a short single line using unpowered  stock.

That's one BIG building!

It would dwarf my little 1829mm x 762mm board (72"x30") but I'm sure will be a brilliant item to see.

Thanks for the update.
