Warehouse Wednesday - Concrete at Ipswich

Concrete Ipswich

We're in Ipswich docks again this week.

There's lots of things I like about this photo. For a start the quayside building sticking out right to the waters edge providing cover for goods to be transhipped as well as making best use of space for storage.

Behind, we have a giant, concrete silo. These look simple but are tricky to model . I've always found concrete a difficult colour to pin down. It's creamy with a hint of brown but often made up of panels with subtle variations.

At York this year, there was a superb model, I think on a layout called Canada Dock.
