Modern Industrial Units
« on: November 25, 2010, 11:14:27 AM »
Rather than spending 60-odd on a jot lot of the Farish Scenecraft industrial buildings, I decided to spend a few quid on some plasticard and make something more suitable, and so this 4-unit block was formed.

The basic shapes were cut from plasticard sheet and constructed with internal walls for strength (and possible future internal detailing), then the Evergreen board and batten roof, and metal cladding were added. The shutters were then cut out and back with grooved plasticard. Once the shell was sprayed with grey primer, the lower half of the unit was lined with brick-paper, then doors, windows and company boards added using photo-paper pictures.

Very nice job Chris. Did you make the signs yourself?

The left two are Google images downloads. The right hand two were knocked up in MS Word using Clipart images and WordArt.

Very nice job there. Where did you source the plasticard and corrugated sheeting?

Very impressive.

Decent sized industrial units seem to be tricky to get hold for any country. My Japanese layout makes use of Kestrel and Pikestuff kits, and even they don't have enough presence for my likeing. If you don't mind, I may have to filch your technique some time in the future...
