Lipton Tea Building

First part of the Thomas J Lipton Tea Building mock up (white, 3/16" foam core). This 12 story building served by the HBS is 165ft tall in a U configuration around three tracks. This is a good candidate for laser cutting, since it has a relatively flat facade from its concrete frame and glass infill construction.

The scale of this is impressive. A happy coincidence that there is a large building on the railroad. I like big buildings, but this isn't the reason I chose the HBS to model. This is the tallest building on the layout.

I am being deliberate with all of the buildings (along with everything else), so there will be mock ups and iterations before final models are constructed. At this point I will scratch build every structure. We'll see if that actually happens. 

Off to the store for more foam core.
