Having had the day off work today, I have managed to finish the basic construction of the station building for Par.
When I was down in Cornwall last week, I dragged my fiancee down to Par to measure the station building so as to make the most accurate model possible. I checked permission with the station staff first.
So permission granted, and a half hour later (with a very embarrassed wife to be!!) I had my measurements.
The main structure is made of 1mm thick card which I collected in my previous job and has been sitting in a box for the last 8 years. I knew it would come in handy one day!
I'm still not sure how I am going to represent the stone work as I am struggling to find stone/brick papers with this colour stone printed on. Any ideas would be most welcome.
There is still plenty of work to do but here are a few pictures of the progress made over the last week and today. I've also included a few prototype shots.
As always, any comments and tips for the rest of the model greatly appreciated.
