That’s looking very nice Phil. A lot going on in this build. You’d think building a pile of rubble would be easy, but I know how difficult it can be to make it look authentic. Doing a great job, keep it coming.Love Love Drool

Some very imaginative ideas going into this build Phil and nicely executed too. As Mark says, not easy to get it to look realistic and convincing, but something which you are skilfully achieving throughout the build.

Very well done indeed. Cool ThumpUp

As i have said looking at pictures of the plant i noticed the rail line behind the factory Blink so i decided to put some track in here BigGrin then just built it up and tried it along with the plant itself and the perimeter wallBigGrin

Looking good, very impressed with your work Phil, adding a track will also improve the build and give you more room to place even more rubble, it will also make the eye look through the build to the rear instead of stopping short. Keep it going I wish you well.

Really coming alive now Phil and adding that railway line is a bonus that really improves the overall scene and makes it even more believable?

Brilliant stuff, looking forward to the next update already! Cool ThumpUp
