Bristol Barrow Road - Roundhouse Roof

barrowroad

558 views

It has been a while since I did any work on the roundhouse roof so I recently added the smoke hood support wires, 4 to each hood, to the 22 that are inside the shed.

The roof is entirely scratchbuilt from brass section and nickel silver wire.

The smoke hoods are of two types - 3 older wooden types which are ex Midland/LMS in origin which I scratchbuilt from plasticard and brass angle, and 19 'asbestos/concrete' units which are cast in resin by my Friend Morgan from a 3D printed master. Morgan also produced the etched supports on the lower edge of the units.

I have used Markits WD handrail knobs - 4 per unit - as hood anchor points for the nickel silver wire supports.

Once finished I sprayed the complete roof with Halfords grey primer.

Great piece of modelling.  Love the accuracy and how dead square you have got everything - great craftsmanship and attention to detail.  Beats my wire efforts hands down.  All that brass must of cost a pretty penny?  How much has been your outlay so far?

Already has atmosphere, just wait until it gets weathered.

 

I wish i knew folk who could 3-D print, or draw for etchings.

Just keeps on getting better and better. Can’t wait to see the first loco moving int o the finished shed and being parked on its stall. Congratulations.
