One of the most common questions I get asked when I tell people I am going to model the shopping centre is ‘What will we actually see?’  So far I have had to try to describe that the intention is to leave off the rear wall of Platform 12 to give the viewer the impression that they are standing on the platform.  With work complete on all of the canopies for board three I can now just show you what you will see if you ever come to see New Street at a show somewhere.

A few signs of life!

Hopefully these views demonstrate why I felt I have to have the roof on as it just wouldn’t be New Street without it.

Looks great Jim you realy have have captured the ‘feel’ of New St. Looking forward to seeing upstairs take shape.

Cool. Really captures the look and feel of a real railway station.

I assume there will be lots of indecipherable announcements and door slams etc!!!!!

Simply stunning work. Really captured the whole place perfectly. It’s just like being there, standing on one of those platforms in the mid-eighties, waiting for the train to Perry Barr. I always remember what you once wrote; model what you see and not what you think. P4 New Street is living proof of the soundness of that philosophy.

Still think you ought to model the over bridge though!
