I’ve finally got round to posting this build. It is the R003b Station and Goods Shed from scalescenes. It’s based on the GWR Staverton station, and those kind folk at scalescenes are donating £1 from every kit sold to the Staverton Preservation Group - South Devon Railway.
It has been built for the last three weeks, but I’ve been so busy I don’t know whether I was coming or going. Anyhow, here are all of the pictures from start to finish. I must really post as soon as I take the pictures. It would make my life so much easier.
The detail never ceases to amaze me. This detail down the right hand side is for a part of a drain pipe. It will all become clear shortly.
The main walls. Interior.
The detail inside that no one ever sees. If you look where my lump of a thumb and finger is, you can see the rest of the drain pipe cleverly built into an oversized interior wall. So when the cable end is fixed into position……
……..“Hey Presto” you have a drain pipe, that can’t be knocked off.
The fine detail seating under the covered area.
And would you expect anything less than some very intricate roof detail. These amaze me every time, how effective they are.
The finished Station Building.
And now for the Goods Shed. It is a simple sturdy box construction.
The roof is an effective slated design. The same as the Station Building. Cut into strips and ever so slightly overlapped.
The picture on the right shows one of the downsides of printing with a laser printer. When I wrap the sheet tight around the card, the print cracks and rubs off. I can live with this as it is just a case of touching up the damaged section with a corresponding coloured marker. I’m very lucky in that I have at my disposal, a wide range of markers that my wife Jak gave me, and if I haven’t got the right shade, I can usually find the right one in her pens as she uses a wide range of markers in her design work. If I can’t find the right shade in the pens that she has, I never will. I will post a picture of the pens that I have at my disposal in a future post for you to see. I still prefer using the laser over the inkjet. The images are so much sharper.
Some delicate wall awnings for above the doors finish the job quite nicely thank you.
Well, that’s that post done and dusted. I must, like I said earlier, post as I’m going. One it’s got to be easier than sitting for hours, scratching my head wondering how I done a particular fiddly bit weeks ago. And two, you don’t have to wait weeks so you see just how quick and easy these scalescenes kits can be.
The next build due out some time early March, is a 1930’s style Semi Detached House. Can’t wait.
Until Next Time……………..
