Thank you Marty and Owen.

Final instalment...

Gutters were made from half-round 2mm Evergreen strip and downpipes from plastic rod.  The brackets which in real life secure the downpipes to the walls, were made from paper.  The water butt is a commercial product.







Finis.


 


Thank you for following this thread and for the encouragement and kind comments.


Terry

Just the job, you can feel justifiably proud of the results! A real encouragement to anyone thinking of scratch building something.

I'll second that Doug.  A great build Terry and an excellent "How I did it".  :thumbs

Now - how many buildings were there in John Ahern's book ? ...........Don't you two build them all before the rest of us get a chance. :roll::roll::roll:

Thank you Shaun, very kind.  I am about to start the small country station but I wasn't thinking of doing a thread of the build as the techniques will be the same as the cottage.  I might just show pictures (eventually) of the finished building.

If you have the time and patience Terry, I think a 'how-I'm-doing-it' thread would be great. Everyone has been following your previous threads, from the hardened scratch builders through to novices. It's entertaining as well as educational.
Go for it!

Shaun.

Oh, a 'How to do it', definitely. How else can I learn the tricks and discover the new methods (the Scalescenes window bars were new to me). Besides, the longer I can read of other people doing it the further off I can put my own start, though my drawings of Halton Holgate station are nearly complete now, so it won't be much longer.

O.k. you win!  Nothing succeeds like flattery!

I'll start a new thread for the country station.

Congratulations on picture of the week Terry.

I've said it before but I'll say it again, it's the exposed brickwork that makes it for me. Nice touch :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs
