Here is what is underway at the moment (there are five buildings not pictured that are being assembled on the bench - another "block" like is pictures in the middle left of the below photo).
|4Ground is my friend! Getting ready to|
finish building and mount all of these lovely
buildings to MDF bases.
The layout will include the factory (three stories), police station (two stories), and brick three-story houses from the "Whitechapel To Baker Street" range, the hotel complex, and almost every building, some in multiples, from the "World At War" range.
I have finished the basic assembly of the hotel complex, now on to the details.
|An AWESOME hotel complex.|
|As awesome as the outside is, the inside is|
The "details" now are to use the 4Ground roof strips to overlay the roof and make it look even better - and to use the 4Ground base paints to patch up the corners and such with paint. I've managed to finish the stone coaching stable and you can see the results below:
Hopefully you agree - as good as the base building looks out of the box, the added time to enhance the roof and touch up the paint is well worth it!
I'm cutting all the MDF bases for many buildings this weekend (including some buildings for Muskets & Tomahawks from 4Ground) ... I'll be posting progress regularly as this project is in full swing! In addition to the many 4Ground buildings, I'm adding extra scenery for my WW2 layout that includes:
- Custom bocage (I'll be posting a how to on making it).
- Custom smoke markers.
- Custom blast markers.
- Customer pin markers.
- Signs, telephone poles, and other odds and bits.
More updates to come, tons of progress is getting made.
