Excellent - thanks Barry. It strikes me that there are a lot of scenes railway modellers make (perhaps especially in the UK) that do not have corresponding OO figures.  (I had some HO figures I thought I could use, but they just made the warehouse and freight look enormous. Or the freight made them look small!)

Dock scenes - how many different 4mm figures?  Pubs - how many people drinking?  Brewery - the occasional man with a barrel.... I could go on!  

And another thing, most models I have seen are set in at the very least, a warm seasonal climate, yet most figures are in coats carrying umbrellas....  well, you know what I mean.....  Maybe this is for room 101, but it is frustrating that the options are so limited.

Rant over!

Michael

Very nice Michael, I notice that you've left out the overhang parts of the building.

Thank you Phil.  I wasn't really making that particular building, it was more a reference for colour and location.  I do plan to make it to sit beside the creek, when I eventually get to it.

Great work. I think you should have a garden railway! ;)

Readers of this thread may remember I built this goods shed, on the left - A Wills kit.  Well, I decided to repaint it in a weathered London Brick finish, add some lights and a photographic interior.... so it went from this...




To this...

Just starting to decorate the buildings, working from the rear of the layout.  This is for the Faversham Brewery store...





And in place.  The figures are some HO white metal ones.  Not great detail but they don't really need it being at the rear of the yard scene.



Ignore the backscene here, it is a test piece which was propped up but has  fallen forward!

The warehouse will hide some of this scene, except when looking down the track between buildings.  I've done a test fit and I think it will look quite good in the background.

Followers of this thread will know I have a wooden post to hide.  I originally had a warehouse covering it, but I wasn't particularly happy with the build.  It was my first attempt at the Scalescenes model and I generally need to have a go at a model a couple of times to get it right.  Following some advice from John Dew and his warehouse builds, I did a bit of kit bashing and have now created a slightly larger version which will hide more of the wood and I've done some tests with adding a sky line above it, so may give that a go too.  Here is the current progress.  The left hand end wall cannot be fitted until it is ready to be put into position.  So just working on some detailing which is easier to do away from the layout.





This is the cut for the beam.  To make it a little more complicated, the beam is at a slight angle, so the cut out has had to compensate for that so that the platform will run parallel to the track.  Lighting has been fitted, but I cannot finish the roof until it is in place.

The top of the roof is finished although not fixed in place as it is too high for the cross beam in the loft.  I will have to fit the warehouse in place and then glue these on after.  

I find the scalescenes capping less than convincing, so have cut down Metcalfe paving slabs for the capping here.  These are also textures I created, more in keeping with the rest of the building and I could make them long enough for the full length of the warehouse.  I say created, I really mean sourced, through a website I use for all sorts of architectural features.  I just put it all together in Word.

The doors are in place too.....

I've also made a crossing for the road entry to the goods yard.  It was a kit - not my own!! It's laser cut one, just paint it and glue parts together.

This photo clearly shows the angle needed for the cut out for the wooden post.  I didn't think about this until I tried to fit the platform to the original warehouse.  It would have needed to be an odd shaped platform.  Although I could have gone with that, my own aesthetics required the warehouse and platform to be square to the track, hence the cut out.

I'm sure there is  a proper way of working out the angles, but I did it by trial and error with waste card templates until it was right!

You really have sorted the post problem with the new warehouse Michael thats time well spent.

I must say that laser cut kit of the crossing gates is very good and you have painted and weathered them very well.

Do you have more than one post to sort?

Brian

Hi Brian, and thank you.  Thankfully just the one post to hide, but it is quite a prominent place. 

Michael

The warehouse is now in position and mostly finished apart from some detailing and the platform.  Then to disguise the rest of the wooden post.

The original name of the company was Faversham Co-Operative and Engineering Society Company Limited.  I shortened it!

Brian suggested adding a small building on top, perhaps as a lift shaft or something like that.  I have done that, in red brick as though it was a later addition.  This means the rest of the post can be sky blue to disguise it further.  I will try that tomorrow....

The scene is beginning to take shape now Michael. What was a problem with the post not long ago is now starting to look really good.

Thanks Brian.  The building has certainly done much to disguise the post - or at least have it so that it doesn't appear to be part of the scenery.  The blue sky above..... hmmm not sure it is working for me at the moment.  I will give it a few days to get used to it and assess.  From the point of view of taking pictures and my enjoyment, it is much improved.

Michael
