Almost finished: the factory building for my 'Army Men' project that I have been calling 'Jono's World'. I don't know what the factory makes, but it seems that Horatio Cogg, William Sprockett and Abraham Splyne hold several patents in their home country for machining machinery. The Kiivar Branch has been established, of course, for tax avoidance purposes...
As the thing is a shoe box clad in brick paper and roofed with corrugated cardboard, I could have called the firm Fibb and Lye Cobblers Ltd, or Shoehorn, Last and Sole Co.
|Early in the construction. Brick cladding yet to be completed.|
Windows for natural lighting drawn on card strips and glued on
before the roofing.
|Another view. The corrugated card will not this time be drawn|
as pantiles, left as unpainted or maybe painted dark grey or near black.
|The shoe box lid built up into the factory roof. |
It comes very close to being large (high)
enough for 1:72 scale war games.
|The factory very near completion. my original smoke stack|
looked too short and spindly, so I remade it.
The stack and burner lean-to was left unglued to the main
|Factory front with inwards and outwards loading doors.|
I had intended a raised loading dock, with the doors
accordingly raised from ground level. But I forgot.
|The view of the other side. |
The hinges have been added to the double doors because I'm quirky.
I'll probably add a loading dock with a ramp down to ground level
|The building disassembled. The space inside is available|
for storage of figures or terrain pieces.
|Another view of the disassembled factory.|
The corrugated cardboard is what I have been using
for roofing my Sideon IV buildings.
My thanks to 'Maj. Guiscard', Governor General of Sector Six, as the 85th follower of this blog.
The Maj. Guiscard has developed a fantasy world peopled with some strange but engaging personalities, including the eponymous Major. I recommend a visit to this place.
