Basic Structure Finished, more Detail Parts to come...


Well today I had a very productive session building the first structure to grace the JL&T, so much so that I managed to complete the remaining portions of the roof.  This means that I have finished the major portions of the structure.
The roof is now installed and tied into the commissary building and modular kit, the left hand modular section is glued and attached to the commissary building too.  This required a small section of 1.0mm sheet styrene to be cut and shaped to fit the shape of the modular kit were it tied into the commissary building.
I had to make some small sheet shims to fit under the modular roof, these were glued to the top of the commissary parapet, then the whole modular section roof was glued to the styrene attached to the parapet, there is also a series of 90 degree angle pieces of styrene down the vertical join between the modular wall & commissary wall.

The next step was to make the extension piece of styrene roof for the Commissary roof, this was again another piece of 1.0mm sheet styrene cut to fit the commissary kit and extend back to backdrop.  The existing roof that is provided with the kit was used to help support the extension piece.
