It all looks very convincing.

Just a little work on the building this afternoon. Still lots to be done - progress seems slow. The pic below shows the latest state - it should be possible to work out what has been done by comparing with the previous:

The red brick building, is there a door on the other road side? Also what are the small arches at the bottom of the same building, is there a basement to come?

Yes, the red brick building is the back of the Psychosynthesis Trust property who have a front door and shop windows in Tooley Street.

The small arches are how the real building is. Presume they are ventilation for a basement although there is nothing more and it doesn't extend out in to the pavement so there is no basement to be modelled.

Here's some more progress including bending the front wall around the floor formers and gluing it in place - and it held. Plus starting on some of the details.

Lovely piece of construction. How did you make your chimney pots?

That is a real work of art and even more so for being in N scale.

Thanks.

The square ones are Scalelink cast white metal. I had a number in my spares box but only 6 of each size. The smaller ones look too small so I've ordered some more to replace them.


The round ones I make from styrene tube or the Peedie 3D printed one are very good.

I must declare an interest in Chimney pots. I make a range of 3d printed chimneys (amongst other things) for sale via Shapeways. The chimney pots are mainly OO, and have focused on Scalescenes primarily at this time. I was interested to know that even someone with your modelling skills still "buys in" some of the fiddly bits.

I don't have your skill or patience, so my thought was to model and sell pieces for people similar to me, so the that we can try and emulate your sort of quality using lower skill levels and less time.

I particularly like your chimney stacks and the general three dimensionality you have brought to the building facade.

I'm always very wary of buying things from Shapeways having had a few bad experiences. Many items I've purchased have had very obvious stratification lines on them (which are quite obvious in N gauge scale) and are almost impossible to file smooth without damaging other detail. A lot is to do with the orientation of the item during printing which can change from order to order and the designer has little control over. Then there is the difficulty to clean and paint the material, and the finest quality stuff is very fragile (will break easily - almost shattering - if dropped). Plus Shapeways are rather expensive now and the postage costs (from Eindhoven) exorbitant. 

However, it is possible to get better quality 3D printing - I had a resin casting from a 3D print produced in a UK based laboratory (where I was able to inspect the 3D print first) and that was fine. And Peedie produce their own prints which are pretty good.

Anyway back to the building project. I've finally got those pesky windows done on the right hand end building so that the wall could be fixed in place. Now the finishing touches can be started.

These final pics are as far as I'm going to go with the model for the time being. There is still a few bits and pieces to do like adding details (such as burglar alarms, signs, vents and so on), weathering and scene setting. But I've other projects to be getting on with so these can be held over for the time being:

That is one very nice set of buildings, I alway think this type of 'real life' buildings can make a layout rather than indivudually plonked single buildings with gaps between them.

A stroll down most High streets has sets of buildings all joined up.

I love those buildings as they certainly have a lot of character about them especially the curve and in 2mm scale as well, also plastic is one of my favourite mediums to build in though I have also used card outside the station area on my layout.

I will try to keep an eye on future posts though I am guilty of being a rare poster due to time constraints.

An N Gauge masterpiece.

Five star modelling. Nothing less.
