Factory as Low relief

Hi All,

Your factory in use as low relief at the back of my permanent way yard.

That is very effective - I love the wire fencing and gates.

There is a huge amount of very skilled modelling talent in this forum. I'm always astounded by the result people are achieving using our kits as a base model. It's very nice to see this, because it makes the very long hours designing them feel worthwhile. Many thanks for sharing your photographs JC. I love the bricked up windows that's something I can remember seeing in my childhood.

I'd also like to add one of your photographs to the front page of the web site, with your permission??

Best Regards,
Purple Bob

Built on a spare shelf, total overall size of 800mm long x 300mm wide, as somewhere to park odd items of 7mm rolling stock as I get them.

I just fell off my chair.... :shock: I designed a lot of the structure of the basic model.. your re-imagining of it is just beautiful. phenomenal work there.

Thanks. I think the factory has huge potential in any number of given situations. A blank A4 (or similar size) panel of matching brickwork would extend those possibilities enormously, might be worth including one in the base kit, or having a couple available as an accessory pack, with industrial downpipes or other industry type fittings if at all possible - then again it takes some of the fun out if you get too prescriptive with the base unit!

Inspiring build. I've been looking for a simple arrangement for a what I call a micro-micro On18/O9 layout. This factory has been considered, but wasn't finding an attractive way to use it for the purpose.
The idea of the courtyard and the shed answered to my doubts.
Thank you for sharing.

Morning ..

Stunning work... and a great idea to create a shelf diorama to house extra railway stock ...
