Old Layout Construction I
finally got a chance to do some work over a weekend at home.
This is the weekend where I took the vine clinic pictures and started
the wall clinic. I also had a chance to work on detailing
and weathering the Sellios Building. I pretty much finished off
the roof and added a great water tank that I put together from some

here are some pictures showing my progress. You also get a view

Pretty much the whole building is cut from Magnuson
sections. I love those Magnuson kits! Most of the
weathering is chalk powder or charcoal.
I still have some detailing to do and I have to finish up the
columns on the front side. That'll come over
Thanksgiving.... Any comments are welcome!
You can also get a feel for where I model by these
pictures. My workbench is great, but the A frame
structure drives me crazy. You can also see that I have fluorescents
