shelf layout


North lights

Posted by hayfield , 07 December 2009 - - - - - - · 245 views

I have started to build up the north lights

A backing piece of 15 thou, then 2mm strips to build up the window bar detail. I then cut out the window blanks then added 1mm bars on top of the 2mm bars. Hopefully once the bars are painted they will look a bit thinner. Only 40 more to make.



slow progress

Not much has happened recently, like everyone else work and social life has got in the way.

The shell is now stiff enough for me to finalise the position, I have also now worked out the track positions.

I was hoping to be able to cut out the inspection pits today but have been distracted and it is too dark outside to...


Starting the detail

Posted by hayfield , 26 November 2009 - - - - - - · 179 views

The walls looked a bit stark, so I decided to see if a plynth at the bottom of the walls would look better. It breaks up the wall quite well (looks better in real life where depth is more apparent), I will bevel the tops once the solvent fully drys.

Window sills have been added , and will also be beveled. Windows are tacked...


A bit more work on the roof

Posted by hayfield , 25 November 2009 - - - - - - · 200 views

As the roof grows the structure stiffens up (thankfully)I have enough roof pannels to complete 3 out of the 5 tripple spans. I have also started the capping on both the roof tops and brickwork over the entrances. I will carry on with the foofs until I use up the pannels. I will then order some more along woth some 1mm microstrip to make the north lights...

roof starting to take shape
A bit more progress on the roof.

The first 2 bay roof is installed and this part of the shed is becomeing quite ridgid. I have started fitting both roof and wall cappings. It look like I am going to see if Wills will sell me some extra roof sprues as I will need some more roof capping and if I use them the smoke jacks. I...

Over the past few weeks work and other things have got in the way of progress. The first turnout is built and tested, this was the easy one as it is a straight B6, nice and simple.

Over the past couple of nights I have worked our where each wall meets the sides and fixed them together. Now on to the roofs.

I have started...

A second kit arrived yesterday so I could continue with the build. I have started to built the third bay.

I have tried to load a photo but its not happenning, still nice to have the web back. Will post a photo once I find out what the problem is.

The track will be SMP flexi track and (C&L) copper clad built turnouts all in 00, I thought about making them from C&L plastic parts but I decided against this


Shelf layout update

Posted by hayfield , 14 October 2009 - - - - - - · 1,504 views

I am building a shelf layout in my workroom as a test bench for my locos, storage for them and to play trains. My main interests in the hoby is building whitemetal loco kits and building turnouts.

The space I had available was 5' 3" long by 12" at one end and 18" at the other. Locos would enter the layout from the right from a fiddle...
