Par Station in N Gauge - The Station Building (Part 2)

Good afternoon all,

 

Not much progress has taken place over the last few weeks but I have managed to get the stone papers cut out and attached to the cardboard base structure. Thank you Pete and Tom for your tips on how to produce the stonework in my last entry, I used a good photo of the station itself and then cut part of the stonework from the photo, and copied and pasted it several times to get a strip of stone work. Then this was printed onto good quality paper and I carefully measured and cut out the door and window apertures before attaching each section to the card structure using PVA glue.

I feel the end result has given a fair representation of the stonework.

 

It all looks a bit bare at present and there is still plenty to do on the model and hopefully I can spend a few evenings this week getting the doors and windows sorted ready to be glued into position.

 

Anyway, here are a few progress shots of the building with a temporary roof, which I will have to redo as it is slightly too wide. D'oh!! :banghead:

Well done Jeremy - Found myself by chance standing on the bridge overlooking this very building 48 hours ago...if you are missing something let me know although am only armed with iPhone camera.

 

I think when you have finished the detailing of the building it will really come together...perhaps some weathering powders to help blend in some of those verticals? Nice work...

Thanks mate! The building does look a little basic at present, think I'll take you're advice and give those weathering powders a bash. Never used them before but the results on your moorswater layout looked great!

Thanks also for the offer of pictures, I'll keep you posted on that.

I'll let you know how I get on.

Oh, by the way, have you got JV's Cornish Railways book now?

Best regards,

Jeremy
