Next task is to join these two sheds together to make one long shed.

Not as straightforward as first envisaged...

So why not deliberately add an access roadway between the two buildings?

Because we want a long engine shed and are really belligerent that way...

The gaps were filled with thick plasticard strips cut to shape.

 

I scribed thin plasticard to match the roofing sheets and glued them over the aforementioned filled gaps.  They will be painted to blend in with the existing roof.
 

I will add embossed brick piers to cover the gaps in the walls with matching piers to the ends of the shed.

 

Followed by a re-paint of all the masonry.

 

Cheers

Decided to build a “lean to” building on the side of the shed to house a boiler, switch room, crew room etc.  
 

Couldn’t find embossed sheets to match the Bachmann moulded brick pattern so am scribing my own on thick plasticard.

I may need to lie down in a dark room for a bit after this...

I plan to tone down the harsh brick colour with light grey acrylic paint wiped in to fill the mortar joints.  The roof cladding will also be toned down and weathered.

Working on a control building using a downloaded kit from Smartmodels.co.uk.  First time I have tried building one of these kits -we have a few Scalescenes kits downloaded for other parts of the layout.

External steps assembled.  Each step and the landings were supposed to be wrapped in a paper “concrete” surround.  This is too much like hard work so I am going to seal them with Klear and paint them.

Thick card base added (not part of the kit) to form an external paved pathway around the building.

A really enjoyable kit to build.

Pardon me for being pedantic, but why would you pull off a spare lever?

 

Good point.  Luckily the roof is removable so I can paint the offending lever tomorrow.
