I did wonder about that, Andrew, but you had written that it was going to be weathered so I thought it would not show when you had finished.

After their success with the horton sphere & distillation towers, the construction team turn their attention to building a garage for the tanker fleet that will distribute supplies to the local area

As with previous Greenmax kits I have built, this was a well detailed set of parts

Thanks for the latest estimate. That should be a very attractive building when completed, Andrew.

Thanks Chris, hoping I can do it justice, this is one that I was going to try & take a leaf out of your book & try some internal detailing.... posters etc. on the wall......

That could look very attractive, Andrew, but you'll need to incorporate some overhead lighting for the interior to be seen. I bought some LED strips for ceiling lighting for the loco. shed and other buildings but have yet to use them!

PS If you want the image files (JPGs) for the non-railway pictures on the loco. shed wall, just PM me.

The kits look good. I've never built Greenmax kits. I buy led strips from our local Chinese shop. They can be cut into threes and if they are too bright a touch of black paint will dull them down. They work off 12 volts and sold to embellish cars!

Still not wholly convinced that the painting crew picked the right colours off the shelf....... but at least it has a coating

Thanks for the photo., Andrew. Shouldn't the walls be painted a concrete colour though?

Morning Chris, yes, I did deliberate about that, but elected to use pigmented concrete on the final build, the Chief Executive of the Blackford Petroleum company that is building the refinery will be able to see this yard from her "big hoose on the hill" and wanted something that blended in more to the surrounding landscape - her logic was that a green roof & brown walls would look more like a low tree from her dining room bay windows

The roofers have been on site

Thanks, for the update. Ah! That makes perfect sense, Andrew. Sounds like the Chief Executive of the Blackford Petroleum company must be a relative of Lady Penelope of Trevelver Castle, another successful businesswoman known for her forthright opinions! 8-)

There are rumors around Perthshire that the family fortune was built up several generations ago from the tin-mines of St Agnes

Does that look square to you.....?  Where is a good surveyor when you need one!

Hoardings & signage will need to be acquired, but given it's Japanese origins, the garage does not look too out of place .... and while she has not done a site inspection, it is understood that the Chief Exec has found the colour scheme to her liking
