Hi All,

 

Finally build the baseboard, and got a few pikkies. Meant to post yesterday but internet went on the blink!

Finished board. Not the best looking thing but should improve ;)

Proof of size,

Proof of size.

 

The baseboard is a tad small, due to the backscene to be added, making sure the board is in the 20x11x11 size limit.

Thank you for your kind comments Pete!

 

My apologies for lack of updates so far, but made a bit of progress. The walls have now been painted and ready for weathering, support beams have been made up and sprayed black, and will be fitted after the walls have been weathered.

 

Now then, the right hand wall (i.e the one without the doors) I'm not sure what to do with. It will currently have 2 coaches chopped in half and stuck on the wall to give the impression the shed is bigger. My idea would be to paint the wall black and put some girders in between the tracks. Bearing in mind the wall was never intended to be photographed as a backdrop for models, just wondering what I can do with it?

 

Cheers

Good Afternoon!

 

The walls are now weathered, the second coat is drying on the beams, black stripes on the doors added and the pins have been fitted to the right hand wall to 'hang' the half coaches on. Here is a few photos for you.

Doors. the middle one will have some of the top painted sliver, to replicate replacement section of the door. The runners will be painted grey, and some gunmetal will be added to represent grease.

Overall view. you can see the brass pins that will hold the coaches up.

Little bit of fun! A dustbin with a bin bag in!

 

Thats all for now, the beams will be ready to add later and will add the grey to the door runners now.

 

Cheers

Hello All!!

 

Thank you all for your kind comments, it really gives one a boost! The doors have now been weathered, just need to spray the remainder of the beams, weather the floor and add a few little details!

 

Just over a week to go!

 

Thanks for following!
