Warehouse Wednesday: Veron Building

Vernon Building

Despite it's outward appearance, the Vernon Building in High Wycome isn't a 1960s office block, it's a series of industrial units. A quick check on-line shows a number available for rent along with a video walk-through that starts with the muppet driving around and filming at the same time...

Anyway, another good modelling opportunity here. The pre-fab construction means lots of repeated sections. Steel windows have virtually no depth so could be scribed on a sheet of perpex and the lines filled with paint. Despite the age, there's very little weathering apart from a few streaks on the end.

Best of all, it has no style so changing the location won't be an issue. You could even just use several end views along the back of a layout instead of a backscene.
