Another scratch build building

I've made a few scratch build efforts in styrene so far, but I have not taken the time needed to REALLY do things correctly as of yet. So, on my next build I'm going to try to raise the bar a bit - taking more time and being more careful all around.

I've been looking at this Sankei paper structure for a long while. I love the design, but I've worked with these Senkei kits before and the complexity of it will pose several "I WANT TO BURN THIS KIT!!!!" moments based on what I've done previously. :::grin::::

 I love the overall design and I think I can manage to create it from styrene even though I'm no pro-builder for sure. I think it will make a great addition to both my layout and my skill set if I can pull this off. I'm going to simplify some aspects of this design as well. All in all, it will be a fun challenge.

I think I'm going to try my hand at this simple parking structure first. Again, it seems simple, but I'm sure I'll find some issues once I start building.

 If I can start building structures instead of buying, my layout and my wallet will benefit!

As always, I'll post progress photos as I go along.




  1. What a coincidence, I just want to try to make this kind of Parking building. It looks really simple, but it is really common in Japan area. I saw many of this Parking tower in the last Japan trip.

    1. Nice! I have a feeling that it's going to be harder than it looks, but I'm going to give it a go! :)
