Modern Fire Station Scratch Build.

Modern Fire Station Scratch Build.

After looking for a few weeks and not finding any kits in OO for a modern fire station i had to design and build one myself. Now i am no expert or anything like that but have built a few items in the past but never anything this size. So after a long time thinking of the design i came up with this. Its not based on any particular place. With being modern it needed to house 2 pump ladders and an aerial ladder rescue pump. I made the roof on one area with slop which was a bit of a nightmare even though i used 1mm plasticard. All the bricks were downloaded from here and also the inner pictures from the fire station on model scale scenery. After also looking through all the amazing stock they hold i also bought LX266 and LX268 to try and build a training tower. Again i had to put pen to paper to see what design i could come up with. Anyway here are the results so far from the build and hope you enjoy pictures.
