New video: 1/35 scale scratch built scale model warehouse

Blimey, I've been rather quiet lately. I've been in the zone, utterly concentrated on building a commissioned miniature of a local warehouse. Because I've been so intent on that project, and I had a rather tight deadline to work to, I didn't record the process as comprehensively as I have recently.

As a result, my latest video is composed of still photography rather than video - you still get narration, and a pretty solid idea of how the build progressed, but it's not quite as comprehensive as my recent 3-part series on building a model house.

I've not really built much in 1/35 scale recently, but as the client wanted the entire structure, including the interior, I had to choose a scale which would give a reasonably-sized final result. This ended up being about 40cm deep, which is about the maximum size I want any of my miniatures to end up. Any larger than that and it is just too bulky to display for any average person. Plus, in choosing 1/35 scale, I was able to use a Tamiya bicycle kit for one of the interior items, which saved me from having to entirely scratch-build a bicycle - phew!

I added a few elements like brake lines, wheel reflectors, etc.

Video is embedded below, but in case that doesn't work here is the link:
