After a month of working on the Crushmoore building I think I've reached a point where I can call it good and move onto the other buildings in Malvern. There's still a lot of smaller details left to be added such as piping, weathering and misc items which I can do at a later time, but at least now I can get it located and start in with ground cover. I still need to add a small parking lot on the right side by the office, this I want to try using some roofing felt for an asphalt lot.
The last thing I added was the roof top details. These were all made with LEGOs except for the Air Conditioning unit on the office, I think this was a Burt Industries detail. After gathering all the pieces I wanted, I glued them together and painted them an SP Lark gray and added silver to some of them for a bit of variety.
Using LEGOs for details is a great alternative to buying pre-made details and the possibilities can be unlimited. What a great idea!
While this may not be a masterpiece of a model, it has taught me that scratch building is not as hard as I once thought. It can yield a unique structure that you can't otherwise find on the open market and one which you can fit the area that you have.
This was a fun build and I'm looking forward to doing more of the same throughout the layout.
Thanks for following along.
