Diagonal brick joint crack ?.

No problem - in fact, superb modelling detail !. It is subsidence due to mining. Trust me, I know these things as a qualified Chartered Surveyor (amongst other things).

Now why didn't I think of modelling subsidence in one of my mining area buildings ?

Cheers,              Michael

Hi Michael.

I would like to retain your services as consultant...
...on train-wrecks, crashes & subsidence !

I have a feeling 'extreme brickwork' might feature in the future...
...with my stash of spare 'placky bricks'.

The Mysterious Moose Mountain enginehouse isn't gonna look like your 'crooked boozer' for now though...
...I HOPE !

All the best.

Cheers.

Si.

Hello Si,

All you need is a wee 'Moonshine' plant at the back of the locoshed then you could have subsidence & (liquid) sustenance !

For consultancy I only accept cash by the way - £, $, Ying, Yang, but not Euros please.

Cheers,     Michael

Hi Michael.

Is GOLD all right ? (not the fools Euro stuff !).

Been investigating 'placky CACTUS' ! as well as bricks.

I think there could be a few growing here & there...

...esp. near the still, out-back of the enginehouse !

Cactus might draw water out of the ground & cause subsidence...

...but am not qualified to comment.

Darn good booze though !

Cheers.

Si.

Thanks by the way Michael for the 'How Not To Do It' photo !



I figure the tall dudes stand at one end of the bar...
...and the shorter ones at the other !

If you want to feel less 'woozey'...
...you can always enjoy your pint at one of the tables outside...
...looking AWAY from the pub !

:Crazy:

The Crooked pub has been causing me nightmares !

So the Mysterious Moose Mountain bricklayers in addition to weights...
...developed the 'flying buttress' cementing technique !

Running MEK into the joins on these has worked well.
But due to the possible moving while soft, have been only glueing 3 or 4 pieces at a time.
It has taken quite a while to do !
