The best part of a scratch-build has to be the final steps when all the wiring, pieces, and (most of all) the wild guesses about how it will all work come together (or not!)!
So I here I present to you the (almost) complete "Canon" building (formerly known as the 'modern flatiron building')
Pictures say more than words.,,,most of the finish work involved adding pieces of trim around the back side windows and over the corners of the building.
I am really pleased with how this one turned out...if fits the strange shaped area I had and nicely integrates with both the modern Kato buildings and the other structures in downtown. The only thing I might do is add some resistance or something to the entire structure as (you can probably tell) the LED's are quite bright!
The interiors, as I mentioned in the earlier parts of this project, are composed of some manufactured detail bits, as well as pieces of painted foam core and bits of styrene with some simple printed backgrounds on the walls. The interior figures are all the very cheap Chinese made ones found on eBay.
With this project done, I have to start thinking about my next project. I really enjoyed this technique and would encourage anyone to do the same. Using the transparencies for the windows along with bits of styrene is really quite simple but gives a great effect.
That's all for today! Thanks for reading and please feel free to leave a comment (and for you other bloggers out there, I'm always interested in other work as well, so please feel free to share your blog!).
