Here are a few pics of my recent scratchbuild, completed last night. Its a station building, loosely based on the LNWR/LMS ones found in Buckinghamshire and on the Settle & Carlisle line. Overall I am happy with the results - few little areas I could have done better though. It is fully wired up with LED lights and interior using Scalescenes printed sheets and etched brass items from Severn Models. The model is made from 2mm card, over-layed with Slaters plasticard stone sheet. Roof tiles and ridge tiles are York Modelmaking, benches are Shires, windows and doors and window/door surrounds are laser cut offerings from LCut Creative. Guttering is 1.5mm styrene strip and downpipes are 1.5mm styrene rod both from Slaters. Weathering is mostly cheap pastels from Wilko's (£4 for 12 pastels) plus Humbrol weathering powders.

Hiya Z! thank you for your kind words - the windows are laser cut from a company called L-Cut Creative. I painted them using Precision Paints LMS Buildings Cream via an airbrush. http://lcut.co.uk/

Thanks
Ian

Very nice modelling. I have always been doubtful of the Dapol footbridge; however, it looks just right in your picture - as though it has been there for decades.

Thank you all. You are all very kind!

Re: Dapol Footbridge. I had to remove a section from the middle to lessen its width it and reduce the height by taking out a section on the higher tier of steps. That helped with the looks a lot and to make it fit on the platforms.

In hindsight, the York Modelmaking lattice footbridge would have been a more appropriate model to represent the LNWR/LMS area I am trying to achieve. One day I will get around to replacing it, but have far more interesting things to do such as complete the detailing and the goods/wagon storage roads.

Ian

Great model Ian - pat yourself on the back. :thumbs :thumbs

Do the roof slates come as a sheet or are they in strips ?  I'm just wondering if the apparent slate "overlap" is done at the lasering stage or is it because you laid them in strips ........... :roll:

The windows look the part too. :thumbs

Hi Petermac. The roof tiles are in self adhesive strips so you can overlap them,stagger them and cut them to fit. They are a soft fibre type material so easy to work with and flexible
