Well... it's been an interesting last couple of weeks after my father in law was taken into hospital, so there's been little progress recently. But after some free time yesterday, this is what PB currently looks like:











Hopefully I can get the trackwork finished before I go back to work on Monday night.

As I'm on nights this week, I've been unable to work on the track any further, so instead I've been building a craftsman kit - Broach Supplies, by Kitwood Hill Models.



Verdict - it's a lovely kit, very interesting design, but it's been fiddly as all hell (even N scale craftsmen kits are easier than this!) and the instructions could do with a couple of improvements here and there. The functioning sash windows are definitely a highlight. :)



I've also added some of Kitwood Hill's furniture items to the annex of the building, make it look a little more interesting. :)







































Not much further to go on it before I can start painting it up. :)

It looks very rustic, Daniel.

What is it?

I'm not sure what it's supposed to be, a freight house/warehouse I guess.

The stock model comes with a loading dock underneath the 'stilts', and a pair of staircases coming from either end of the building down onto the loading dock.

I'm omitting one staircase and the loading dock, and using it as a lumber merchants, with the office/warehouse being sat on top of the lumber storage racks.

The staircase and loading dock will be repurposed elsewhere on the layout.

The original kit can be found here:

It looks good in conjunction with the larger building.  :cool:

Well... it's been a while, but I've not been idle.



Trackwork is done done. I've soldered the power droppers to 2 of the boards, however Ford has taken the board that will house the sector plate away to build and fit that, and he's also working on building some servo-actuated switch machines for us. As such, the rest of the wiring will have to wait until the layout is back together.



I've also made a start on the scenics, and have used lightweight filler to build up the ground contours on one of the boards. One down, two to go.



Structures have been started and the majority of them are in a state of the basic walls being complete, I just need to get some wooden beams that I can use to brace the corners before I build them up, but I need to wait until payday for that.



I have, however, been working on one of the buildings that will hide the sector plate from view - a mixed media version of the Clevermodels music store. I wanted to ensure that - in O scale - any part of the kits that should be wood are made from actual wood. I figured this would add to the overall look of the layout.



So here's the version of the kit I built in HO scale:







Whereas here is the progress so far on the O scale version:
