I don’t like the overscaje corrugated roof so will charge that for something better otherwise just Paint and no doubt 3D printed finials to fitted to complete. 
 

Signal box next..

Ooops! Having re-checked my post, it seems some of information has gone askew. The Taff Vale rooms had a different roof structure and outline. 

 

Apologies for any confusion caused, and I'll delete my previous post.

 

Cheers,

Ian.

Getting all the brickwork looking right including sloped brick coarse around the base.

 

 

 

Engraved roof slates. No fiddly strips to worry about.

Just had a look through catalogue of the kits. Must say they do look good, but my goodness what a price!

 

Quality does cost ..... but it looks good.

 

Or have a bash yourself, this hobby has never been so well supported these days, the range of kits or materials seems almost endless.

 

Best regards

Craig.

That does look a very nice and compact box but with the outside toilet, finials etc.  Very nice.

I may well drop you an order early next year for a kit, even though it will probably only go on a photography plank with a couple of Crosville buses parked up by it. 

 

A rather nice LNWR box, sort of one size down from the Bachmann Scenecraft version would like nice too. 

Wouldn't be a commission though.

Straying off topic , as a Shirley (solihull) resident would love to see the Bentley Heath images of they are shareable

I’ve got several LNWR style boxes in 7mm so they will be available in 4mm at some point. Not sure when though. 

 

 

are you able to let us know which LNWR ./ LMS / LMR boxes for 7mm as a "taster" please ?

Totally get your sentiment.

I spent 21 years working at Bescot and lived and breathed the place particularly in the 1980s when I was single.  To see the infrastructure from that time be progressively demolished - new TMD, old steam shed, Down Tower, upside admin block etc, it was quite disappointing, but I am a philosophlcal bloke and I tend to accept that new HAS to replace old, even though it is not necessarily better.
