    As the Scalescenes free silo & creamery can be seen in the background of the last pic in the post above I’ll move on to some other bits. I’ve loved the idea of the same designer’s canal stuff, so had a bash at the lock & bridge kits. Suddenly realised I didn’t have a close up of bridge, however it’s there in the photos of the overall view of what could become a railway. Scratchbuilt the paddle winding gear on the lock from styrene, partly because it was easier than cutting out the card versions!

    And there’s some interior detail too

    Thought I’d change supplied canopy for one scratchbuilt from various styrene parts.

    Then added an office based on the one in the free Scalescenes L/R warehouse.

    Last of this set of freebies was a warehouse/transshipment shed. Chopped an extra door on one end.

    Thanks both! This is just a beginning, a new layout may be in the making...

    Next was a workshop. Delighted to win an eBay auction for some equipment As I couldn’t print transparencies at the time all the roof lights done with Wills corrugated clear styrene.

    Thank you! Photos a bit cruel about the finish, & of course firebox door would need a giant to stoke the thing, but I was pleased!

    Next up was the boilerhouse from this set. Decided to make a boiler using various types of styrene & an old tube which had held sports hydration tablets. I did all the buildings with a skeleton made of styrene profiles. The idea is that when this goes on a baseboard the buildings can be lifted off to show the interior. I’ve also been cutting out the bullseyes in the end walls & fitting scratchbuilt fans & vents.

    Been a while since I’ve been around for a lot of personal reasons. Modelling went on, but only occasionally. Then when winter hit & I was locked down & even my charity shop closed was delighted to gone across some free Scalescenes kits from a magazine. Thought I’d get building again!

    That roof is the Wills bike shed! Many thanks, I was really pleased with all the little bits I could add to the scratchbuilt side, some dustbins to go in next.

    Building has been there from early on, Julian, it’s one of the modules of the Scalescenes medium station. I have been gradually adding to the scene, though. Sadly something seems to have gone wrong with the lighting. I fear a dodgy soldered joint inside & have no way of getting in & fixing it short of tearing up the station...

    ...thought so, there he is. Must be late meeting my mother off a train: He’d better not have been in the pub or he’ll be in trouble
