This was built over the Christmas period between porking out on mince pies and turkies legs for a long standing client of mine.

The original still stands and was built out of red victorian brick but we both agreed that it should have been built in stone and Wills stone in particular !

Here then are a few pics though there is a little tidying up still needed - as there always is !

Cheers.

Allan.

Lovely model Allan, you say this was built over the xmas break? do you not sleep? it would take me a month of Sundays and it would be no where near as good as yours!!!...


Cheers, Pete.

Good to see the hobby still has a firm grip on you Allan... and you still have a firm grip on it. 
Is it 0 scale? I have to keep telling myself "the standard of modelling that Allan produces in 0 or 00 doesn't need to be (and in many cases, cannot be) replicated in N!". 

Even if I wanted to.
cheers
Marty

Now you must have had a very long "Christmas period" Allan but I don't understand why this long standing client of yours would insist you "porked out" on mince pies and turky legs .....................:mutley:mutley:mutley


That's a brilliant model but, as Pete said, to have produced it over the Christmas period makes it all the more remarkable.

The stonework is so realistic.  How did you do the window frames ?  Are they plastic mouldings or some amazing secret method you have up your sleeve ?

Hi Peter.

Well one turkey leg actually and well overated. The mince pies the missus made so no comment.

The stonework is Wills Course Stone sheets, SSMP 200, and the windows are Scalelink GWR signal box windows.

Cheers.

Allan.

Thanks Allan.

It was more the window frames I was asking about, not the windows themselves.

The stone window surrounds in this shot is what I mean (I'm assuming the fancy work on the balcony is fireclay or some similar product):

Ah, my mistake, sorry.

The outer 'stone' window frames/surrounds are made up from Evergreen styrene strip.

The fancy balcony front was a poor shot using something 'whirley' that the missus found in her bling box that was just pressed into fire cement. I'm not that happy with it so I might rip it off and replace it with a more convincing balcony before it's collected.

Cheers.

Allan

Hi Allan
Just found this when looking for something else.
Of all the stations in Clydebank:-  Riverside, Central, Drumry, Singer, Kilbowie and Dalmiur Park, this was the only one I never visited so it's good to see a model of it.
It stood on the south side of Glasgow road and could be seen from the 144 Linnvale bus top deck. Because of the sunken position it was locally known as Clydebank low level. The accompanying goods yard on the other side of the street (behind Simmeones Cafe, the only jukebox in town in 1960, 3d a play or 5 for a bob, was where the "shows" (local name for the travelling fair) were held. You had to keep a sharp lookout for the Scammel " mechanical horse delivery waggon as it would simply launch itself out of the goods yard which remained after the large lump of the yard, we called it a lie, which the shows were held on had had the rails removed.

Nice to see it and a great job.
Regards
Jim
