Finally installed in its rightful place.

 

Took most of today filing away the aperture for it. Quite pleased with how it looks with the platform facing.

No sure if this is right but I did make the ScaleScenes low relief hotel into a full hotel by putting three units together and then scratch building the third side and back and put a roof on a roof

I also converted the Garage into a three bay taxi garage

I can't remember if I posted this scene or not, although this particular pic is relatively recently taken:

 

972144127_Pre-fabred.jpg.fe9cb20b30073225b50ec13ad9cb3e3c.jpg

 

It's N/2mm scale and based on the entrance to the Old Kent Road Gas works from around the mid 1970s. On the left is the gas showroom facing the OKR (building now demolished), then the single storey concrete pre-fab building is the medical centre (now a multicultural liberation ministry church - whatever that is), the yellow block is the district offices and the low relief red building is the area offices (also now demolished).

A good example of why it isn't a good idea to work to a deadline.  This was originally intended to be a model of the watertower at Moorswater, on the Liskeard and Caradon, but getting bogged down trying to work out what the dimensions should be (and never getting it right,despite this being the third attempt) meant I had no time to include the window-shaped opening that should be overlooking the coal stage, another one under the pipe pivot or the doorway in the other side.

After a bit of a pause on the building front, whilst I finished wiring the layout, I’ve finally finished the row of shops that are now attached to the Hand and Flower pub. Just chimney pots to add when the rest of the block of buildings are finished……as I always knock these off.

Here's some N/2mm low-relief building models from Tooley Street (unfortunately they still needing finishing).

 

At 29-33 Tooley Street, just to the right of Colonial House, is this building which was originally shipping importers offices for the wharfs and warehouse behind. It still exists, although changed a little, as the well woman centre clinic of the London Bridge hospital.

To the right is Dominion House, at 37-45 Tooley Street, but this building has long been demolished and replaced with the Cottons Centre:

Further along Tooley Street, at 81-85, was this row which has also been demolished and replaced with a lacklustre glass block. The pub needs branding and windows added but I do recall having a couple of pints of Bass in there many years ago;

I'll follow up with an unfinished building of my own, part way through painting and detailing. It's the station building for my layout Aston on Clun, inspired by Vowchurch on the Golden Valley Line, with a canopy added.
