This is a nice little project for anyone with a weekend to spare and would sit just nicely alongside the station level crossing.

It wwas built as part of another small railway orientated diorama which I'll put up when it's finished in a few days or so.

Allan.

Very tidy, please will you give details of how you have managed to make such a neat job of the windows etc...and that excellent render finish, what scale is it, G...?

Hi Doug.

The windows are brass etched from scalelink, sprayed with white acrylic and very carefully glued behind the apertures with just a smear of Evostik Impact then glazed by applying the glue aroung the edges of the glazing strip only.

The black inner window surrounds are 10thou black styrene where a whole sheet the same size as the wall is used, but it's cheap enough. The window cills are also black styrene - 1mm thick chamfered at the leading edge.

The bay window was cut from 1mm white styrene and overlaid onto 10thou black styrene again allowing for a 1mm inner window surround - very carefully.

The render finish is a thick coat of well stippled brilliant white emulsion - just get a couple of matchpots instead of a tanker load !

The scale is 7mm

Allan.

Don't bother to wrap it up Allan, pop it on the layout and I'll move in tomorrow.!

Shirt box acetate or similar for the conservatory windows?

"Anyone" ???? :shock::shock::shock:

You jest Allan - maybe anyone whose called Allan Downes ................;-)

Yet another brilliant piece of modelling from an expert. :thumbs  It gives the rest of us something to aim for. That first photo really does look like the real thing - it's only when you see it sitting on the deck that you realise it's not real.  Wow !!!

The house SWMBO has always looked for to live in. She was certain it was a real full size house. I had a devil of a time trying to convince her it was a model.

Thank you gentlemen for your kind comments - excellent for the ego, so don't stop now !!

Anyway, here's a barn I started this morning to go on the same diorama as that cottage and signal box but because of the length required it will have to be in two sections.

Allan

So here's the pics then I'm off to tile it.

Great work as always Allan but I'd really like to see you do something in "N" scale as it's a whole different ballgame than "0" or even "00"!    Mind you, you'll probably come up with the same results anyway!!!!! ;-) :cry:

Ken
