I realised today that I've not actually posted here a build I've been working on for my O scale layout, Piedmont Blues.
I wanted to see what I could do with a small Clevermodels kit - in this case the Brick Garage with Loft - and changing it into something totally different.
The idea is to use Clevermodels textures for the brickwork, and the roof, which will be sheet metal. The rest will be made from card and wood.
At least, that's the plan. We'll see how it eventually turns out at the end!
I'm not sure what industry this could be, though I doubt it will be a rail served structure. The layout is set in 1965 - any suggestions on what it could be would be most appreciated. :)
The idea is that the original garage structure has been built on top of, the roof removed and a new, flat work area with an enclosed staircase up to both it, and the timber and clapboard tower structure.


The intent was to build the structure in the way it would have actually have been built in "reality".
So, the garage structure took centre stage at the beginning of the build. On top of that, I've added timber cross beams, and built upwards from there.
This is as far as I've gotten to date:






I'll post further progress photos as and how it goes. :)

Yesterday's progress on the garage/tower building.

Today I'm going to be building a few boxcar kits, so I'm not sure if I'll get any more progress done on the structure for a little while.

It's all basewood - other than the card bits, obviously! :D

The walls and decking are made from basswood sheet that has had planking lines laser cut into it.

It came in a pack of about 50 sheets that are approx 8"x4".

I got it from Hobbycraft once upon a blue moon, but I've never managed to find it there since.
