I’ve started the coils for my scalescenes T009 Modern Industrial Building, and I think I have got a production line going.
The process started by taking a photograph of the coils we have at the docks.
Next, my darling Wife Jak took the image and worked her jiggery pokery to come up with a sheet of one hundred and forty coil pictures. I then printed this onto an A4 label sheet.
With a couple of Jaks hole punches it’s a cinch to pop out the coil images.
Next came the tricky bit. I started by buying a length of wooden dowel from my local hardware shop. I am fortunate that I have a small workshop at the back of my house (my sanctuary)where I have a built in bench saw and a pillar drill at my disposal. This made it easy for me cut the coil blanks to length and then drill a hole in the centre. A quick sand on the sander, and I have some coil blanks.
Then a quick touch of colour with my marker pens…….
……stick on the ends pictures……
…….glue them all together and da daaahhh……
……a row of coils.
I think I’m quite happy with the result. Do you agree?
No, these are not my coils, this is one of the coil sheds at the docks.
If I can replicate this coil shed with a few more rows of coils, I will be a “happy chappy”
Until Next Time……..
