As far as I'm concerned it is fit for purpose though I'm stll uhappy with the roof and there is a perspex panel still missing from it (to allow me access).
There is also the internal gantry assembly to do and instal, but as that's another sixty or so pieces of MDF (and yes that's 60+) to glue and paint, The gantry etc. is not essential and although I will be doing it at a future date I'm just too sick of this model atm to do any more of it.
|Side view (spot the poster)|
Internally I did want to add more posters etc. and a bit of detritus - oil drums and so on.
The side with the 'annex' now fits tightly and the roof removes easily, though there's no photo showing the boringly bland empty interior!
The original intention of this 'annex' I presumed was as some sort of boiler-room - hnce the chimney. I've obviously omitted the chimney and intended to use the 'annex' as either an office or maybe even a toilet (I'm pretty sure it'll be an office though).

|Obligatory boring view|
|The roof (duh)|
I now need to find it a home, which will require a bit of reorganising my shelves - this really does need a more secure storage space because of the fairly fragile stairs.
That's it for this week, next week I'll be giving some thoughts about MDF in general and this model in particular.
Thanks for taking the time to visit and as always all comments and criticisms are welcome
That is truly great work!ReplyDelete
Thanks HW, it's turned out almost as well as I'd hoped.Delete
Looks great Joe!ReplyDelete
Thanks Colin, always nice to hear from you.Delete
That is a very nice looking building. Well done.ReplyDelete
Thanks Chris, I did try to make it not look brand new.Delete
Thanks Tito, much appreciated.ReplyDelete
The Factory looks the "dogs2 mate I have enjoyed following the build and enjoyed the finished result as well.ReplyDelete
Thanks Clint, I didn't really think that I'd get such a good response for such a run-down filthy looking building.Delete
Love it. With the paint and the finish on the planes I think it looks splendid and also with a british look. Great work Joe.ReplyDelete
Thanks Ptr, I'm just pleased I got it to this stage; I'm now curious though why it looks 'British'Delete
The shape of the windows and also the colour of the door.Maybe its just me but I get a atmosphere of hard work and a cup of tea. :) / PeterDelete
Also the colour on the socket brings out the feeling.Delete
I guess you're right, I thought of dull and uninspiring - very BritishDelete
...and what a fecking beauty! Excellent work Joe!ReplyDelete
Thanks AL, it'll certainly make a good centrepiece to a game.Delete
Quite a nice bit of modeling, Zab. I can hear shuffling and shells being loaded into chambers.ReplyDelete
Thanks Jay, sound effects would fit nicely intothe building, once it was fleshed out with the usual crates etc.Delete
A very fine factory, Joe! Although tempted, I've yet to pick up any MDF kits. This one looks really nice, I also like the roof. The factories and train buildings of yesteryear had SOO much better styling than those built today! ;)ReplyDelete
Thanks David, I'll give my final thoughts on MDF buildings sometime in the fututre.Delete
This model, I'm sure, could get away with being used from the 1920's onwards.
A fantastic piece, Joe - and if it looks almost as how you imagined it, it is probably a lot better than it looks on the photos!ReplyDelete
THanks Mattyoo, I have to say the photographs make itlook a lot better than I thought they would. There are many things I would do differently if I was to build this again, despite first 'practising' on the smaller version.Delete
It looks marvellous Joe. Well done it has been a pleasure to see it come together over the previous postings.ReplyDelete
THnks Brummie, I do hope that my 'take' on this model has helped others to envisage their own individual builds.Delete
That just looks fantastic. I'd love to game around that. Look forward to seeing a report with it in.ReplyDelete
Thanks David, I too would love to have a game around it, but I'm not holding my breath.Delete
Awesome job! That will make a great piece on the table. Add a couple of warehouses nearby and you have a nice little industrial zone. It's a fun building, I really like it!ReplyDelete
Thanks N667, it was one of my targets this year to add some warehousing this year to go with the containers I amde a while ago.Delete
