Herewith an initial photograph of the building I'm making for my Bear's End station. 'Bear's Valley' station became a terminus, renamed 'Bear's End', following the collapse and closure of the western tunnel to the Wheal Gravey pasty mines. The lower seams of the richest pasty fillings were flooded with salt water making the line unprofitable and the redeveloped station was subsequently absorbed into the G.W.R.

 



 

Poop poop!

 

Doug

I feel another bout of jealousy coming on.

That's looking awesome Doug, I look forward to more pictures.

Nice start Doofer but I hope you aren't overdoing it with the eyes. It's only been a few days since the treatment.

Nice to see you back on the horse, Doug.  :thumbs

Another masterpiece on the way.  You must have a collection by now.  I can't bear to part with my "restored" locos, but they don't take up much room by comparison.

Like Bob says, look after the eyes.

Superb Doug and am looking forward to seeing it develop.

Incidentally I only just read about your eyes but hopefully they are on the mend.

That has all the makings of a superb piece of scratch building Doug but please don't overdo it with the eyes. Like Peter I would also like to know how you've created the arch and cornicing. It looks absolutely brilliant.

After seeing this I think I might have to scrap all my buildings and go lay down in a darkened room :sad:

Thank you all for your kind remarks, we can all do it if you are as daft as me and have time to spend to keep on doing it until it's right! I'm being rationed  on computer and moelling time by Cruella DeVille at the moment!

Herewith some answers/sketches, the arch assembly is all card apart from the little curved 'brackets', fabricated from 3 fibre washers glued together with poxy resin and sawn up, the square uprights are 4mm stick from a firework rocket I picked up in the road years ago and sprayed with white car undercoat.




 

Below a sketch to show how I will try to make the booking hall and canopy, basically I shall try to make a rectangular roofless building, lay a piece of 2mm purze-pecks on top and then put a roof unit on top, where the purze-pecks sticks out the sides, it will form a porch and a canopy....Hey Ho! as our chum says, we'll see if it works....


 

 



 

T't't'that's all for now, folks,

Keep safe,

 

Doug

Apart from the skill in executing the thing Doug, it's all in the planning I see.

Whoever would have thought of rocket stick and fibre washers ......................:shock::shock:

A brilliant idea about the "purz-pecks" - I can see that being featured on many future stations ........... :thumbs 

I'm planning to build the Scalescenes large overall roof for my terminus station at Maxmill Town and have been pondering about how to make the roof removeable whilst maintaining the strength of both it and the walls.  Any ideas ? :roll:

A little progress, cutting the 1mm blue brick wraps is a PITA, 288 x 1mm cuts to a 4" length, which only does 3-4 windows, if you don't mess it up!

 



 

Taking it easy,

 

Doug

Yes, but it sure is worth it!   Looks great Doug.
