The Old Compressor house belonging to the previous owners was destroyed in the great storm of 1902 its now under restoration for use as a small workshop for the Huffkins mine - the idea is from a building using 1 brick wall with everything leaning on it

Its early days for the model - lots to do - the brick work on the main end wall is individual bricks by Stacey's Miniature Masonry (1/24th scale) an excellent product and true scale size bricks - the side low wall is from a sheet of 1/35th scale bricks but very much over scale for 1/35th this wall will be covered with undergrowth and rusting junk.
The inside of the main wall will be a rendered finish and the rear wall is planked

The interior of the work shop will have a used look but not over weathered (only been in use for about 2years)

The wiring and fuse boxes were left overs from the old Compressor House just tided up a bit for the machines and the left overs of the old belt drives can be seen on the main brick wall

Stacey's produce some very useful stuff - bricks, floors and so on in the larger scales. I've kept some photos for reference from a number of web sites showing Marcel Ackle's modelling which is truly inspirational. Just type in of a search engine "Marcel Ackle" and a host of photos come up.

Nick built some structures with individual bricks. As I recall, he actually made his own bricks. His results, as yours, are superb. Please keep us up to date on your progress. -- Russ
