Oooh, you got me thinking - how about a ScaleScenes version of Dr Who's Tardis?

Probably not though because of copyright issues?

 

No, the trouble's getting the interior to fit.... ;-)

I'd like to see backs of Victorian-era  terrace housing  and their garden walls, - so common on the linesides approaching big towns and cities. 

 

Also, the backs of Georgian terrace houses - they make great  view blockers. being several stories high.  They backs often varied when the fronts didn't and that would make them interesting  to look at.

I would like each page of the kit to be numbered and location of each part, when introduced, to be noted in the build instructions.

Sort of like:

"Glue the Buttress capping base layer (3, MR) squarely into
the centre of the back of the cover layer."

This would be page 3, middle right.  Would save me a great deal of searching for the right bit of the kit.

Another one to go along with his lineside clutter series - how about a sheet for industrial machinery and control consoles - something to populate the interior of the Boxfile kit, perhaps?

 

Hi Daniel

 

I realise you posted this back in January, and this isn't Scalescenes connected, but have you looked at www.anyscalemodels.com? Resin castings, they do a number of industrial machines suitable for workshops - lathe, pillar drill, press etc and also workbenches and cupboards. The may not be as crisp as those from Preiser, but at least they are chunky enough for 4mm/foot and I don't think anywhere near as expensive.

 

No connection - just a happy customer.

And also check out 3D printed ones from Shapeways.

I have indeed. I am in fact using some of their wargaming scale casting for O scale. :)

A modern station footbridge please, like modern enough to comply with DDA and have a lift and all. 


Funnily enough I was thinking the same, having ordered and downloaded the small modern station I was wondering how to get the passengers from the roadway down to the platforms!

Looking at the railway buildings recently I notied that not all of the kits are available in all the brickwork colour options. It would be nice to see these offered so that people building a station area or similar can get everything in matching brickwork.

John is very good with this, buy the kit in any of the available options, email John and he should send you the kit in the texture you require :)

Putting in a first "wish" for 2021...

 

Having created ships, docksides and buildings suitable for a quayside, I wonder if John could turn his hand to creating a typical Stoller & Pitt level luffing crane? He has already done a container crane, but this is one item that nobody does - and I have looked!

 

There are many different looking examples, but a generic older style (rather than the newer, tubular constructed versions) would, I am certain, sell well to everyone with a quayside! The old Airfix/Dapol dockyard crane stands out, and perhaps John is the person to finally make it easier to model the more common type of crane found in the UK before containerisation?

 

Just a thought...

I'd like to see Georgian terrace backs.    Bilteezi sold one and Scalescenes could do a more 3-D model.  So useful for modelling approaches to town and city stations and tall enough to be an excellent backdrop.

I think that is a hole in range at the moment. I am looking for something tall, older and with not much clutter behind so it can come almost up to the railway fence. the high street backs are quite nice, but are much deeper than I would want.

 

Another wish would be for the other half of the multi-story car park . To my mind most model railway would have the road to the car park off-scene, so just a low-relief multi-story car park would be ideal.

I wonder if a crane jib, particularly a lattice type one, would be suitable for constructing from cardboard wrapped in printed paper? Personally that's the type of item I'd look to scratch build from styrene strip or etched metal and paint the finish.
