Did you turn the cup upside down to check the back stamp? That's what Stokies do.


Of course! if its not made in Stoke-on-Trent it’s not proper tableware :lol:

Well the station masters study is now in place

Apologies for the poor photography, it’s much clearer in the flesh so to speak

I have no clue how to take clearer photos with my iPhone with the interior lights on

Thanks Steve

 

I admit that I’ve gone a little OTT with the interiors, especially considering you can hardly see them once they’re installed but I’ve enjoyed doing them which is the main thing

Just walking away is the best thing.

Well Done.

Have you "glass" in the window, Chris? Some people use microscope slides.

There is glazing in the windows although it’s just clear plastic

 

I've tried to take a photo to show it’s reflectiveness

Unfortunately it also shows how dirty they are :(

I have indeed just walked away from it

Are you planning to have steam rising from the cup?

 

If you say yes, or indicate the possibility of even investigating such a step, I think we may have to have you committed!

I appreciate my Station building build has been a long drawn out process, for which I apologise, however I’m nearly there now


After having to wait what seemed like an eternity for the nameplates to arrive the doors are finally on

only jobs left to do once the glue on the doors has cured are to install the interiors, finish painting the chimney flashing, weathering the chimneys and a general going over it touching up any areas that need it

 

This has been my first ever kit bash so thanks to everyone for being patience, although everything I’ve done thus far seems to have taken me twice as long as it should have :lol:

Thank you, very good of you to say


Although does this mean I’ve got to cut my ear off and die before it’s appreciated by a wider audience? :jester:

Since ordering the etched nameplates my plan to put a door on the gents loo had changed

 

So I wondered if positioning it here would be acceptable?

I realise this looks brutal but one thing that bothers me is light bleed

 

I’m quite sure that in reality when someone has the lights on they don’t get a line of light under their house!

 

Although I will try, I can’t guarantee that my platform will be perfectly flat (plus there is mortar grooves in the platform top)

 

So to this end I have sealed around the base of the booking office with my favourite* automotive knifing putty, once cured I’ll make sure it’s sanded flat and give it a coat of black enamel as belt and braces

*knifing putty is my favourite because it’s only three quid and I have an Halfrauds within walking distance to my house :lol:

No need to apologize, it's been a fascinating build! I've not even started mine...

As with everything I do it’s a little OTT but why break a habit of a lifetime

It’s not all filler, I’ve glued plasticard to fill the large voids and then just skimmed over it

I’m pleased to report (despite poor photography) that you can actually see more of the interiors than first thought

You’ll just have to take my word for it that it clearer than the photos suggest

Great stuff fella! Really excited to see what the rest of the layout will hold!! But I fear with this much attention to detail, It could take a very long time... Mind you, with this self isolation malarkey, I’m sure you'll get a lot more progress done :)

I was once told a layout is never really finished....and at this rate it won’t be :lol:

 

I’ve managed to clean up the nameplates so they are a bit clearer (it’s been bugging me all day whilst at work) but please bare in mind they are only 1.5mm high and close up photography is very cruel

The window cleaner has done a terrible job :wacko:
