Thank you. The light does make a difference. Printing at 90%? Not really and it made the pumps look too big so 100% would have been fine. 75% on the church and farm was spot on as they are much further back.

That's great Ian. I don't normally like card buildings, but is really looking good.

The Scalescenes card building are superb and with a little extra weathering and detail they can really look the part. For buildings away from the front of the layout, they fit in nicely and the lack of relief isn't that noticeable (in my opinion, others may disagree).. I have scratchbuilt my prominent buildings such as station, goods and engine sheds as they are at the front and the most noticeable, plus its a railway and I want the focus to be on those areas, with the scenery adding to the overall picture. 
Details such as curtains, lighting, guttering and downpipes I think make a difference and help "personalise" the building and make it unique from others. I haven't seen many of these garages on layouts though. They are so easy to construct and they remove the guesswork/measuring need that comes with scratchbuilding. Most of my buildings on "Jencaster" are Scalescenes. I have used the terraced houses, row of cottages, church, farm, garage and corner shop/pub. 

They also lend themselves to being clad in embossed plasticard. You have the basic structure with cut lines to follow, just overlay with plasticard instead of the paper texture sheets and you have yourself a very nice building indeed. Dirt cheap as well!

I was asked on another forum to get some more close ups of the interior. I took these and thought I would post them here. Close ups are never going to be great and show up every little mistake and error, but some are too late to fix (pulley shaft fell down after knocking the building and I need to remove roof to fix it).
Items used for interior detail:

Wills SSAM102 Workshop Kit (incl lathe, drill, workbench, pullies, figures) - https://railsofsheffield.com/products/13888/wills-kits-ssam102-oo-gauge-metal-workshop-set-tools-etc-

Oxford Austin 7 - https://www.oxforddiecast.co.uk/products/austin-seven-saloon-black-76ass005

Scalelink Village Garage 1930's - 1950's Set (jacks, oil pump, tools) - http://www.scalelink.co.uk/cgi-bin/sh000002.pl?WD=garage&PN=Scenic___Scale_1_76__OO_%2ehtml#aSLC127

Severn Models Workshop equipment set (hammers, saws, spanners, brooms, tool chest, ladders etc) - http://severnmodels.com/epages/eshop1179816.sf/en_GB/?ObjectPath=/Shops/eshop1179816/Products/D.6

Excellent Ian - a great little model all round. :thumbs

It's given me a few ideas whilst I'm deciding what to do about a new railway room for me.

That's really good Ian. What about a small lorry parked outside with people fixing/repairing the shaft. Just a thought.

Now there's an idea. I already have an LMS promotional van, a motorcycle, rotting tractor and a car getting fuel, but always room for more as this is the only garage in the local area so will of course be busy!!! Need a suitable donor for 1939ish. Any ideas?

I have a couple of trucks which were built from the WWII RAF Bomber Re-Supply Set from Airfix. Along with the tractor and motorcycle it contained these:
    Standard Light Utility Vehicle - Standard 12hp 4x2 'Tilly'Bedford Truck build as either MWC or MWD
[size=
]

[size=I could sacrifice one of those for the cameo scene I guess. You can see one of the trucks I built below heading out of the goods yard.]

I can see either the AEC or Bedford suiting the role very nicely. What about a scene where I kidnap you and bring you to Oz to work on my excuse for a layout. :)

Now there's an offer I couldn't refuse!!!! my wife might have something to say about a train modelling trip for a few days/months!!!
Holiday to Oz, some modelling with some great folks and all i need to do is agree to be tied up, thrown in a van with a hood on and dont say a word to anyone - some people pay good money for that sort of thing!!!
