Bob and Bill, thank you.
The extra supports just looked like it was necessary.

The grass was an inspiration from one in real life.

I have colored the cobblestone road, and glued it onto some blue insulation foam, along with the building, and some dirt. I'll get some pictures when it looks more complete.

One thing I thought of a few minutes ago was the lights the kit supplied. I don't remember at what point in the instructions they were to be added, actually, don't see that part at all, so I may have gotten ahead of myself.

No worries, though, the lights can be used around at the other doors.

Tony,

I have been away for a while, and come back occasionally to view this project again. I like the addition of your cobblestone road and its coloring. I think it fits in there perfectly, along with the new brick and stone wall. It makes a better look and feel to something original. Way to go!

Thank you Philip. It was a thought I had rather than make a mold to make a cast concrete wall, just to be different.

There are very few castings available to use for external exhaust vents on industrial buildings. I have searched Shapeways with no avail, which if there were some, would probably be the most detailed. Strange why that hasn't been made yet (that I know of).

Anyway, the few castings that do exist are not very big, and really, to be totally honest, leave a lot to the imagination.

The one in this kit is a prime example. It isn't very big, and for a building as 'elite' as this one, deserves to have something better.

So, fortunately, I have made a thing or two (no I don't work for Farmers ) and decided to make my own vent. After much thought, I came up with a decent design that looks good, but not too over the top for a structure of this size.

I hope you like it. I also show what the kit casting looks like along side the unfinished vent I made. I spray-painted the vent a light grey by Reaper paints, not having an aluminium color that would look right, and I was going to weather it anyway. You can see I made it out of styrene.

Tony,

I really like the vent you built, particularly the way it comes out of a boarded-up window and is supported away from the wall.

You did sort of go on and on about the lack of appropriate castings before you got down to work, but I guess you had to vent.

Mike

Thanks Bob. And I take it you are referring to the model and not my venting as Mike so aptly put it!
