McCarthy Park

Post by blues.bass » 15 May 2018, 00:44

Here are some photos of my latest attempt at building a passable stadium model.
The rebuild starts with what will probably be known as the Derek Trotter Stand, at the fictional McCarthy Park - home of the mighty, yet equally fictional, Braintree United.

Construction began by building the stand superstructure frame in pine:

The internal back wall was painted, and a beam added to support the LED lighting that will illuminate the stand terracing once the roof is added:

The first section of terracing was then added, to allow the installation of the step hazard stripes and the seating:

Very productive day today (at least I thought so - the Mrs thought I was time wasting).
The rebuild of the Derek Trotter Stand continues...
Still a few more details to add, but the lights are in and the process of adding the roof has begun.

Things have moved on slightly since my last post, but work has temporarily ground to a halt once again while we move house.
Here are some of the latest pictures:
