Looks great, especially set against the backdrop.

That is a very rare piece, I think I've only seen one other, and that was a long time ago.

Regards

Brilliant paintingwork and fotoshopping Astro!
The building is a masterpiece!

I know where I want to stand to look at your next race!

Can you give me some details about the figures? There are a few people I haven't seen before!

They are mostly from the mrrc sets with the exception of (as numbered from left to right in the first pic)

1 - pit babe girl made from preisser eve kit
10 - girl in red - preisser passenger
11 - bloke in yellow shirt - preisser
12 - teenage girl in pale blue - preisser
15 & 16 (although 15 is hidden in that pic)- couple from preisser

Thanks for the comments. I made some tables for the top room but was pondering what to put in the large ground floor room, and finally figured: am currently working on a 1/32 scale 1/32 scalextic layout!

oH NO! Astro, you've taken a rare collector's building and PAINTED IT! You've then gone and actually placed it in FULL VIEW on your layout! The nail in the coffin is that you've had to REMOVE IT FROM ITS BOX!!

Good Heavens, Man! What were you thinking?!!

Joking apart, that's a great job Astro nice one, friend!

Thanks...

I thought they were Preiser's, but I had never seen them on a track!
Please say hi to them from me!


Cheers

You've done a very nice job of it, Astro! Hard to believe that its the same building that I sent to you!

Kind regards

Russell

Very nice job - I`m green with envy I`ve been looking for one of those for years.

Not applicable in this case but I "tarted up" some old Scaly buildings by painting them with white textured Weathershield and they looked good too! Sort of cement rendered.
cheers - Phil B.
