For some time I've had a few card building mock ups floating around my playroom. They're all buildings from Ghent which have intrigued me over the last couple of visits. Here they're lurking in the background of this photo. Time I thought to make a start on a proper rendition in plasticard. Today I started on the easier workshop/warehouse structures glimpsed between the loco and fish van by transferring the measurements from card to brick embossed sheet, or at least as near as the brick courses allowed. As the front will be the most detailed elevation I started with this. At the moment it's drying under weights in an attempt to keep it reasonably flat. Once the window and door openings are pierced I'll be able to assemble it into a self bracing structure which should resist any desire to curl up.
