That came out well - love the run down appearance and the huge ads.

Not sure how I missed this one.

Nice work on those buildings.

Slaters embossed plastic card is great stuff. Those granite setts make a nice wall texture. The 7mm scale paving types make nice concrete block walling.

The little robots look great.

The back alley behind the parade of shops is taking shape. Had fun building a sci-fi door out of various bits. Will dress it with a few bits of rubbish, but it will be a lot less cluttered than the front!

Largely Crooked Dice resin: used the short walls from the Block House, buttresses from the Pipes and Pillar set, a couple of sets of Jersey Barriers for the canopy, the door is from the Shipping Container, minor gubbins here and there including the bonnet from the Interceptor!

Just one wall left to do!

Last exterior wall finished today. Then lots of cladding and extra detailing to hide gaps. Roof blocked out too, but need to paint the inside before fixing that down.

A bit more cladding needed, but nearly done, so I hope to get an undercoat on it tomorrow.











Also built a container stack from some damaged stock and hid the gaps with other bits (including some ancient miliput) and some Vallejo black lava.
