New Guy, old stuff. Aircraft hangar
#1
This one is a little more recent. I wanted to try some aviation based work.

This is loosely based on the hangar I work in.

This looks good, but I do notice one thing that is common with N-scale. Working with the thinner sheet material, seams can be more noticeable. Try, when you can, to have the front always extend over the sides, making the seams less prominent from the front. In this case, with the building complete, you can hide them with thin wire downspouts. Small paperclips work well for N-scale.  Good job.

Thank you Don. Yes corners are definitely a weak spot for me. This is especially so when I get a new idea and I just want to get it done. In instances where I take my time (which is hardly ever), I do work to hide the corners. Thin material can sometime be mitered, at times I have used other extrusions to cover it. Another option I haven't worked
With in a while would be filler putty. Testors makes one in a tube for scale models.
