I'm onto the second to last scratchbuilt building for this layout. This is the station building itself which as mentioned previously I have wanted to build in the art deco style. Some examples I like are as follows:

Firstly I completed the platform to give me a base to build up from:

(supports put in place behind the Peco edging)

(Thin balsa sheet laid on top of the structure) 

 

I then started to construct the canopy out of 3mm ply and checked to get the height right.

(and from the other direction) 

 

I then started to cut out windows and walls from thin balsa for the waiting room and platform offices

Need to finish off the other walls and then there will be a second level with the canopy acting as a viewing platform for a restaurant/cafe for passengers awaiting their ferry. 

 

Thanks for reading

In my own plans I have a traditional station building but then an art deco ferry terminal. How do your miniature passengers reach the ferry from your station? Will you show a link/footbridge, or will this be off scene futher along your ship?
