progress...of sorts...

Good morning,

 

Little bit more progress on the station building however watching 'catch up versions' of Spooks 10 has got in the way a little (two more to finish next week...no spoilers please!)

 

The station is a reduced version of the building as the prototype is significantly longer and probably to scale would stretch to meet the fiddleyard, so this is trying to capture the essence of Kyle. Whilst I am not trying to replicate it to the exact detail, if when I finish, the model can be recognised as Kyle, then I will be happy :yes:

 

I have used the evergreen sheeting cut into strips with a small 10 thou spacer between to try and create the sill and give the elevation some relief. I used a piece of clear perspex as a base to overlay on and the idea was to create the windows on this perspex but I will think that one through again as I have a little MEK-PAK creep.

 

The base profile is in place and now I will look to add smaller framing details, chimneys, canopy and windows and doors.

 

The station has been in various liverys(?) over the years including Blue and Green however I think the one that suits my period is a rather dull grey :blink:

 

More to follow when I have it...quick pic below...

Base shell in plasticard...excuse the twist in the canopy which I only noticed after photographing :blush:

Two more epsiodes to go still Pete.. so you haven't found out yet that the baddies are actually aliens intent on actually taking over the CIA after destabilising MI5 and the KGB ? Ooh, it all gets very good!

The station building looks good. I'm sure that twist will come out easily. Looking forward to some more detail and a little colour albeit "gatwick sky" grey.

Aliens :O Now you have really spoilt it Jon!

Thanks - The twist is just a bit of delam between the the two slivers of plasticard - A paintbrush and a glug of MEK PAK should sort that.

Gatwick Sky Grey - Like it...Like it...You should talk to Wilko about a new range of matchpots... ;)

Actually Pete, within 24 hours earlier this week we saw three double and two single rainbows all meeting the ground at the South terminal gates - not so much a pot of gold, more a tail or orange!

 

Aliens... only kidding... as if I could spoil this one

Its hard to believe that is reduced in length so works fine for me.
