I'm sure I saw those metal bars in one of Frank Lloyd Wright's places. Another piece of architectural wonder coming to light. Bravo

Hey mister Architect,

That is looking really good. We rarely see dios with height and so this is going to be more than impressive.
Metal blocks look to work well. Mine have not arrived yet but the magnets have. They are incredibly strong.

Not many tall dios recently except for one by Mr Forrester.
Great scaling and construction on the buildings.

Well firstly thank you all for commenting, I would have thought as there is no plastic at the moment the views would diminish, but thank fully not.
Peter...... One of your chaps is making an appearance, so some quality at last.
Scottie........ Very kind of you to say mate.
Steve.......... That made me laugh, I'm going to put something in just for you so you will have to watch closely
Si......... How could you Sir. That is a hand crafted layout, I never know next what I will unearth. After many years of working on a 8x4 Ft work bench I have now to compress every thing in. Mind you I could never find anything then either. I shall attempt to be a tidy boy from now on, and set a good example to you all.
Gregory......... Thanks, long way to go so make your self comfortable.
David..... just a little thing
Peter........Thank you for your support.
Kevin......... Not done many really, but I love the construction side more than the plastic at times.
Andy........ Thank you, glad your enjoying it, If you see anything wrong please shout out.
Simon...... Cheers, Nice to see you, fully awake I hope
Marcello.........Why of course, just ask Steve to take his meal off the seat next to him.
John............. Mrs R was able to enlighten me, yes they do ., thank you for your support.
Fernando......Your welcome, just hope it works !
Sjors........... Your too kind,..... cheque in post.
Jim..........Cheers, yes I thought I needed hight with some thing a big in base size. The bars seem ok, having fun with the magnets, they grab hold of any passing metal.

Part 3 . Didn't like a long post.
Richard......... Thanks, I shall have to see If I can find that.
Well after all the thank yous mI have one photo to post, but have been busy. Paper removed on the larger of the internal wall, and filler applied, leaving some exposed foam to brick pattern. I need to make some internal doors, all to be blown into the rooms , so resulting in some damage in side the rooms. Not that much will be easily seen, but feel it ought to be there. Iv'e also cut out from the 5 mm foam board the ceilings / floors for all the rooms, this will help keep the whole structure square.
The side of the building has a single door set back in an entrance. So I cut some 5 mm foam board and cut out the door. Gluing some Evergreen strip on to the face to make a closed door. Iv'e used one of Peters donated figures to give a hight ref.
These Russian buildings were built to impress, having massive windows, main doors and stone cladding over a brick structure . Stalin put foreward designs for big cities, wanting wide streets, impressive public building and having certain areas for industry.
This will be glued to the inside of the building, isn't he a fine looking chap
Thanks for all the support, It certainly helps on something this long winded.
More windows in the pipe line, and then some painting. See you soonish.
