Some Edwardian style postcards. These have been made using a free program on the internet called Be Funky. The new store shed is made from coffee stirrers and matchsticks - I used the Scalescenes free upload of the same shed as a template to stick the cut wood on. Can't say enough about the versatility of Scalescenes products - brilliant little kits to make.
This is an ordinary shot of the new store shed. It took about 4 hrs to make start to finish. The nail effect was achieved by digging the end of a scalpel into the wood and giving it a half turn. Black pastel was applied over the wood then scrapped away with a glass fiber pen. I've only recently discovered the glass fiber pen which is a really handy weathering tool and has now become an indispensable item in my tool kit (thanks goes to Horsetan who uses it in his weathering technique). The roof was made by using strips of masking tape then painted in black acrylic.
Note the blocking placed in the bogie of the Dean Single. It's only a piece of plastic that has been cut to size and glued into place then painted black - not exactly graceful modeling but it does take the daft look off the gaping space between bogie and frame on the Hornby model.
