Goods Shed Part 2…………..

The second part of the R009 Goods Shed from Scalescenes is coming along quite nicely. The buttresses and the plinths come next. Simple base layers with cover layers wrapped around.

Once the buttresses and plinths are in position, it’s time to add the small detail of the window sills.

Time for some interior detail now. The interior platform and doors are put into place at this point.

Fix the gables, the back wall and the gutters at this point.

It’s the small detail added at this point, that gives great dimension later in the build.


Next comes the roof trusses. I like this detail, as it is so simple but intricate and looks fantastic when the model is finished. Quite a bit of intricate cutting out, especially with fingers like mine. But the end result is worth while.

Before I put the trusses into position, it’s good to run a marker around all of the raw edges. It adds to the fine detail and looks very authentic.

Well that’s my progress so far. It doesn’t seem much that I’ve done, but there was a great deal of intricate detail to cut out. The next post will show you the final result. All that is left to do is, the small office to fix to the side, and the roof to fix in place.

Don’t forget those Scalescenes Gift Certificates for those “hard to buy for presents” this Christmas.

Until Next Time……………

Although I don't usually leave comments here, I thought you would like to know that I have been following your activities and projects for a long while now and have a look at all your postings. I love to see how you make these lovely intricate models and although I am more into making doll's houses, I find your tips invaluable. As you say, "it's all in the detail". I can't wait to see all your models displayed around your track one day. Keep up the good work, it's brilliant!
