Looks great Greg!

Winter is closing in and its getting colder. The positive side though is that there hopefully will be more time for modeling

The dormers and sheet metal roofs look good Greg. Nice switcheroo.

It looks great, Greg. Looks like it may soon be design time for me...

Thanks Frank,Frederic & Don,for checking in,and for your encouraging posts!
I thought I would give you a better sense,of what I am talking about,with the addition of this factory being built onto the back.
I plan on having a rise in elevation across from the Magoun pier terminal building.
So Testard's Mathematical Instruments will eventually be placed up against a piece of foam like shown below.
The foam wall will be covered with a stone retaining wall,with the factory addition sitting on top of the elevation.





I quickly cut some box board into a building shape,this will not be the final design.
Still trying to figure out what shapes will look best for this factory addition.





I just wanted you to see what I'm talking about,when it comes to working this factory into it's surroundings.

Thanks for looking!

Greg

Hi Greg, I've always marvelled at your ability to paint brickwork and make it look so authentic. The Frederic Testard Mathematical structure is yet another shining example of craftsmanship work. Wow, the diorama is continually coming to life!

Greg,

This is looking very, very cool, and like Mike, I love the brickwork.

Just watch out for that first step on the second floor. Or is that the freight door for the giant slide rules?

Thanks Mike & Pete!

Mike, it's nice to know that you like the brick colouring!

Pete,you too!
That door on the second floor,will eventually have a fire escape there.
But For now it's used by the company president,to send out potential applicant's that fail his preliminary math quiz.
You don't want to fail,or is that fall!

The colour of the building is wonderful, in particular the blend of the greens and reds.

Greg, the math building looks great. I especially like the treatment to the odd brick here and there. I knew I could count on you.

Hi everyone,I think it's about time for a update here,don't you.
I've managed to finally get a name on this factory,so we know who this tribute build is actually for.
Testard Mathematical Instruments,is now the official name.
I also thought this front porch added a nice touch on to the front of the Testard factory.
And no sooner did I get it in place,when this guy named Albert, shows up demanding access to the showroom.





I added the Central Valley railings around the side entrances,and installed the fire escapes.
And even borrowed an idea from Bob Santos for the snow & ice guards on the roof.





And to better hide the glue joints in the left sidewall,I covered it in Ivy.
Besides, I love Ivy covered walls!





I still have not figured out what exactly I'm doing with the addition,I plan on adding to the back of this factory.
So we will have to wait for that bit,til later.
I plan on installing the lighting next,onto this structure.
Here is one last shot of Testard Mathematical Instruments.





Thanks for looking!

Greg
