A WWII Theme

After having taken delivery of some stuff for the layout I opened the parcel which, amongst other things, contained two WWII narrow gauge bogie rolling stock opens. These were promptly constructed and now await painting. Inside the box were 2 more packs of corrugated iron (the shop had run out of corrugated asbestos so I decided to go for the wriggly tin instead as it is a close match). This allowed me to spend this afternoon building the hangar. This hangar has caused me a lot of grief so far - mainly because the doors keep falling off despite internal bracing. Therefore in the shots below they have all been balanced and are not glued hence any funny positions. Also, the roof has been a pain to build due to silly mistakes I kept on making and has also been balanced on top! The hangar does look a lot better than yesterday and once a coat of paint is on it it should look a whole lot better. The Plastruct sections from my original radar tower will be used as detail for this hangar. Still quite a bit to do but it's slowly getting there...
