A handful of times a year I drive through St. Reathem and Norwood in S London. And every time this corner grouping catches my eye. Urban buildings such as these make up most of our lives and fit the usual modelling periods and yet are rarely tacked. These two adjacent blocks with the alley between would fill hours of modelling and yet less than six linear inches in 4mm. But there is such a challenge, and therefore a satisfaction involved. We pass this sort of stuff every day and take no notice, and yet careful study of these three shots should bring out the modeller in all of us - the varied rooflines, pipework, different window designs and angles are a gift to those long on time, but short on modelling space.
Maybe we should stop all those competitions like squeezing a railway into a pizza box and instead encourage people to aspire to reproducing everyday - but highly complex - work like this.
