Goods Shed………….

The next project I’m having a go at is, the R009 Goods Shed in brown brick from Scalescenes. It’s an old one released back in 2008. I don’t know how I’ve missed it until now. It’s a simple box build, but with all of the detail I’ve come to expect from Scalescenes. Before I show my progress, I have a new laptop and I’m using new editing software for my pictures, so apologies if the quality isn’t quite there yet. It’s quite a learning curve. Right back to the build. First the gable ends. They consist of  sturdy external and internal base layers cut from 2mm grey board and cover layers, which I print onto A4 self adhesive labels.

A little tip for when you have to score a fold. Cut out all of the piece apart from the fold marks. Put a small cut at the fold mark, flip it over and fold along the cut marks.

It’s at this stage I like to colour any hard to access raw edges. It’s a lot easier now than later.

Repeated for the internal gable.
The sides come next. They come together just the same as the gables.
The windows are put into place at this stage. I can’t print OHP on my laser printer, so I have to use an inkjet to print any windows. The detail on these windows are brilliant. These get sandwiched between the internal and external layers.

That’s where I’m up to now. Still plenty more to do. Call back soon to see where I get to.
Oh! before I go, don’t forget the new Scalescenes Gift Certificates. Perfect for that ideal Christmas present.
Until next time………….
