So I ordered some extra parts and added a scale 5′ “lift” to get it so the bobby can see over an engine immediately in front of the box.
The parts were
- A new back wall (which I made a new front and rear out of)
- A new staircase,
- A new door set (to get a new lower door that I added onto the existing one – giving a 10′ high door to the frame room (or so it will hopoefully look when painted.
- A new floor – to make the “lift” much more rigid
But this looked a bit stark – especially as I had chosen not to add new windows for the frame room – and my cutting skills had made the join pretty obvious.
My hope is my crack paint team will work wonders to get this box into good order.
I have left the roof detachable so that the interior can be fitted out and maybe lit..
