So for my new entry I'm going to do a low releif retail park, looking at it from the front.
For the past week or so I've been making some plans (I started planning it before I took the decision to scrap the last project).
Designing it is a difficult one. I'm trying to get that right balance between it being interesting to look at, but also interesting to build. Make it too interesting and it could be hard for me to construct. Make it easy to construct and it could be boring to look at. I'm also going to do it in a 'modular' sort of way. I'll build two, maybe three (time dependent) blocks of two shops. These can then be fixed together or arranged however.
I'll use big name shops you often find in retail parks. I might also give it a late 90s early 00s sort of feel to it (so could of course use some older logos). Such store ideas include: NEXT, Halfords, Focus (if I go for current scene I'll probably have to hang a 'for sale' sign on this one ), Screwfix, Toys R Us, Argos etc etc.
So here is the first draft of what it might look like. Insperation for this particular design comes from Waterside Retail Park in Ilkeston.
Dimensions will be worked out when I've decided what I want it to look like.
All for now,
