Well I'm  a novice, but what the hell,  have to start somewhere. Currently searching the internet for ideas. I have already bought my Scalescenes printable sheet. Tomorrow  is going to be 40 degrees Celsius, here in Melbourne,  so what else to do but see what I come up with. 
Phil the brave or is it stupid? :mutley2:

Go for it Phil ...... The great warrior. :avatar: best of luck, I look forward to seeing what you come up with. Not all the best ideas are the biggest. Sometimes small is best.... More character.

Good luck anyway.

Cheers

Toto

Just a paper mock up just to test concept and scale. Just been using a photo off the net as a guide. The scale is oo by my judgement and by eye. Might have bitten off more than I can chew, but will keep going and see what I end up with. Found that my printer has run out of yellow toner, so at the moment printed in black and white.

Not too much done. Just showing Scalescenes TX46 Random Ashlar. Construction method. Paper prototype and one finished pylon.  Have made the pylons slightly taller and thinner at the top. The tee square and sloop, I made in form 3. Still haven't worked out how I'm going to do the top section, but will work that out using another paper prototype when I have finished making all the pylons. 🤓
