The first edition of the warehouse of Roope & Voss is demolished.
I have decided to make Northall part of Greater London. In one of the books of Ruth Rendell inspector Wexford is ‘recovering’ in Kenbourne Vale, Postal district W15. Northall will be Postal district W16.
After this a wanted to give the premises of Roope & Voss a more London look.
I found a nice description of a famous warehouse in Wapping High Street. I used this description to create a guide for the design of the definite version of Roope & Voss.
Using the same basic design I started to build the warehouse.
Creating stone surroundings was new for me. It also took a lot of time.
After finishing the cottage I liked to give the doors of the ware house a more ‘derelict’ appearance. With a picture from internet and a bit of working with Office publisher I created this doors.
Then I started with the card building of the ware house.
I hope the picture below will give you a first impression of how the premises of Roope & Voss Wine and Spirit Merchants will look.
I still have to do some windows before I can show you the final appearance.
Also have to give some thoughts how to create a believable inside of the warehouse at the other side, were I have the open doors.
