Unsuspicious building

Back with my Besenval buildings again :). I still have a couple of kits by LaserCutCard, here it goes the first of them. Sooo, another good time with card and glueeee...

From 2D to 3D. Trying not to sniff to much glue in the process
I did quite a stupid thing. I thought of painting the locks first and the rest of the building later. But as soon as I did that and ended glueing all the stuff I realized that was nonsense, I'd just paint the whole thing with a primer spray, that would be the quicker way. D'oh.

Anyway, here it is. Blame my lack of planification
These are the two bodies of the building
And now you get an idea of how it's gonna look
OK. Grey primer spray. Once I was high on glue, it was time to get high on paint. You noticed the pink elephant over there? Cooool, duuude...

So I had to paint the locks again. Sigh...
 This wouldn't belong to my port district if it was going to look so good, would it? Right, time to get dirty!

Looks more like my project now...
Of course, some signs were needed. Keeping it the way I used for The Sparklin' Pulsar, I made these, both in English and Chinese (according to Google Translator; please any Chinese speaking reader over there correct my mistakes). What name could I choose for this obscure, gloomy, suspicious and most probably illegal business running inside?

This is reverse psychology. No cop would fall for that obvious sign... :D
 This is how the full kit looks like when finished:

Totally inconspicuous
Stuff added for dramatic purposes
Hm. Nice neighbourhood
Just as I'm posting these pics I realize I haven't added the a/c unit that is supposed to be on top, oooops. I'll have to take care of that, but for the moment I'm good with the result.
If I liked the card shipping crates, I'm totally delighted with this building. Seriously, pretty nice stuff, I totally recommend the kit.
I still have another one... wink wink ;)


  1. When I grow up, I want to be like you. Suspicious busisness... XD

    1. :D That's the kind of stupid things that come to mind from time to time. Now I think I should have written 'unsuspicious business', but well, what's done is done...

  2. Looks like the perfect spot for all manner of dodgy dealings!

    1. Hehe, that's the idea! I like the building and how it is designed. It can serve as office, shop or whatever, it's been quite a nice purchase :)

    1. Thanks! I'm afraid I cannot give proper credit, can't remember where I took them from! But they are truly delightful.

  4. :D Thanks! Silliest things are definitely the best additions, haha!
