    Now that would be something. :scratchchin: could have potential there.

    Toto, these pics show how I adapted the Scalescenes warehouse kits to fit an angled area up against the backscene. Ok, it isn't as deep as the triangle section you have to model in, but it is achievable.

    By stepping the warehouses, it allows a little variety to the shape of the face of the warehouses.

    [​IMG]

    In this pic below, I had to file down the left hand end of the warehouse to get it to sit flush with the backscene, in the limited space I could fit it.

    Cheers, Gary.

    Hi Ian,

    I shall accommodate the challenge. I'll give you the before when I get home on Friday.

    Gary,
    I've your version. My area is deeper but I want to have a reasonable platform area in front of it so the relief of the building does not have to be much deeper. It's something to get me thinking. Also the flat roof looks good.

    Relocated to my new digs last night ........ Nightmare ...... Driving around at half past eight last night trying to find a hotel. Everywhere is full .... Got one but not impressed. Seen better days I think and wifi is very intermittent. Could be in for a rough ride I think.

    Anyway, I'll try to log on tonight when I get back in.

    Cheers:thumbs:

    Distractions,
    not at all. I am continuing with the tenaments for Vicky Road. Good practice for my own build. gary's warehouses are looking good.
    Anyway, back on the practice pitch,
    [​IMG]

    and there is some progress being made, some doors and cills are in place.
    [​IMG]

    and another, drain pipe walls going in place. ingenius idea.
    [​IMG]

    and another,
    [​IMG]

    some of the elements glued and clamped awaiting drying,
    [​IMG]

    Damage to the middle door but that can de disguised with some coloured pencils. Thats what happens when you dont give the finished paper time to dry properly on the cardboard. The scalpel drags on the paper and rips it.
    however not to be disheartened. we carry on.
    [​IMG]
    and one last one for the moment,
    [​IMG]
    The front fascia being test fitted into the carcass. It was taken back out again as I still have windows to fit and the side door.I'll need to print the windows off onto acetate tomorrow. I also need roof tiles to do the roof and barge boards etc.
    Then its onto two single tenement blocks and another double.
    After that I'll see what the messiah says. He still needs other buildings made to complete the set. I get all the ones that are partially hidden ........ probably just as well. :avatar:
    I am looking forward to seeing what I can do with the Highbridge warehousing build though. Some really fantastic examples from Gary.
    cheers for now.
    Toto

    Hi Ian,

    If only ....... :avatar: this god needs to go and wind his printer up to be able to print windows on to acetate.

    I am also looking at corrugated roofing as well for this build.

    This will be where I find out my ink cartridges are low even though they were not long replaced. I have an issue with both gremlins and that famous old chap " Mr nobody " who never uses the printer of course.:scratchchin:

    Cheers for now

    Toto
