Well Ladies and Menfolk, here we are again with another cakebox (mainly because I can). I'm calling this one Return of the Grot in reference to my first CBC 'The Grot Box'.

The main difference here is the base (being a 3 ply lamination of card rather than ply). The shed is a cut down metcalfe kit (so as to fit into the box), the coal staithes and hut are from a Wills kit and the wagon is a Parkside Dundas kit with appropriate transfers from HMRS and a real coal load.

 

I hadn't actually intended to go down the route of heavy weathering again, but it seems to work, and offers something of a USP (so to speak) to my work since weathering (especially heavy weathering) doesn't seem to be much in vouge atm.

 

Any thoughts please?

I think it looks very good and I particularly like the detailed weathering on the shed roof. The only slight problem I can see is that the track has fairly large structures on both sides which makes viewing difficult but perhaps you are viewing from the end looking along the track.

Well, I'll be honest, I'm none too happy with the quality of this picture. I may attempt to get some better ones at some point in the future.
