Thanks guys  :D Realy missed you all  :-[

Here is an updated pic  ;)



I added snow in the "fans" too to simulate the snow falling on the grill, melting under the sun, running inside and then freezing again, packing in over time.

I know it wont be much visible with the grills on but it was still fun to do so...
