Signal Box

The signal box is made from the excellent Severn Valley Models etched brass kit. The kit is assembled using cyanoacrylate glue and goes together very well. I used Deluxe Materials Glue'n'Glaze to attach the window glazing. I struggled with one or two of the small parts, particularly in the stair case but that was more my one-eyed ham-fisted approach than the kit. Once complete it was primed and then painted with Precision Paints light stone and dark stone plus Humbrol for the walls, windows and roof. It was then weathered using pastels and weathering powder.

This is turning into a very convincing and VERY well thought out little layout, all those years of visiting exhibitions have not been wasted. It is not that I thought you could not do it - it is more that I thought you would never get around to doing it!

Still progressing at a snails pace but the snail has gathered a bit of pace recently.

That is a nice box.  It is the same type, or similar to the type used on the Cambrian.  I was quite taken with it when I saw it sometime last year.  I probably will not be buying one as there is now a book of plans for Cambrian structures.

 

I thought it was beautiful when I first saw the kit and your rendition has certainly done it justice.
