Flinders Street Station, which has been my inspiration for the Bank, supposedly has the longest facade in the Southern hemisphere. I do not have the space or time to model the entire facade, so I have skipped the middle part and gone straight to the far end. Even with this smaller part the space is not quite right, so I have had to do a bend around the corner! So in reality this part will be very loosely based on the real building. I do hope, though, the shop in the basement will be recognisable.
I team of ‘brickies’ cam around during the last couple of days. They did a great job but either forgot to consult the drawings or just working too fast. Any way they didn’t leave any openings for doors and windows! As the photo possibly reveals their mistakes should easily be rectified with a sharp knife.
