Very nice Rik.
The mortar in the ridge tiles really adds 'life' somehow. I'm with Graeme about the need for a chimney at least, low relief or otherwise, though.
If I'm being picky, some flashing would finish off the joint between the brickwork at the LHS of the engine house and the adjacent roof.

As for clutter, a couple of wheelbarrows and/or 4-wheel trolleys on the platform? Perhaps a ladder? I wonder if things might have come in or out in barrels rather than sacks? Just thoughts to play with.

I did wonder about a few barrows or trolleys loaded with bones. I did a quick search on Thingiverse for 'bones' and found the vast majority available for 3D printing are of human origin, with skulls being particularly plentiful, though there is also the occasional dinosaur skeleton......

Maybe I should rename it "The Burke and Hare Boneworks"

Not quite as far-fetched as it sounds....... Look up 'coprolite digging' which was a uniquely UK industry in the 19th century. It was used for fertiliser though, not bone china, so wouldn't have been seen at Etruria I should imagine.

Graeme

Sorry I have missed this fantastic thread of your Bone Works build Rik. Don't understand why :scratch:

Still I have learnt some more on how to use materials in a way you explain and show them. Thank you Rik for a very interesting thread. Will pop over to your Bookmarked Blog and look at it there also. :thumbright:

I'm late to this party too, but congratulations on another lovely model Rik...

I look forward to seeing traffic to and from the boneworks appearing in future pick-up goods video*

All the best,

Andrew.

*Apologies if there already is one and I've missed it, I've not been around much lately...
