More Buildings…

More progress has been made with Tarring Neville. I was going to finish the loading dock area but I decided to crack on with the last of the large buildings. This will sit at the front between the loading dock and the quayside. The building is loosely based on the old Star Brewery in Lewes.

Like other buildings for Tarring Neville I made a basic shell out of foamboard and fixed plasticard over the top. Some etched industrial window frames were fitted and the covered roof walkway added .

Roof tiles are cut from paper in strips and stuck on with PVA. Once this was complete the guttering was added from half round plastic rod. Metal rod was used for the down pipes and are held in place with split pins. For the lead flashing I cut some strips of tissue paper and glued it in place around the small window on the walkway and along the tile edges that meet the walkway cladding.

The building has had a coat of primer and had a base coat of brick paint added. I’m thinking of putting a white wash on the two end walls and leave the side with the windows and doors as plain brick.
I have also made a start on bedding in a few of the buildings and been playing around with a few pictures.
