View with roof removed of 1/43 scale multi storey car park interior



 A couple of suggested layouts built using this kit are shown in the photos (above) . The photos are shown with roof removed - it is suggested that this is left loose to enable vehicles to be easily positioned prior to photography. One example uses the two sets of five spaces facing one another, and the other uses the spaces in one long row. The pedestrian access door may be added in any full height wall. Note that the 'line of ten spaces' model could have the full height wall with pedestrian door omitted to give two extra spaces, or placed differently.


The models shown measure approximately 15" x 11" and 8" x 21".
