Having enjoyed building the Station Building it really should have something to keep it company.
This time I`m going to be using 99.9% of the resin kit but fine tuning the entire roof section to look more finescale in appearance as well as matching up to the station structure.

As before,I have engraved the stonework again prior to assembling the main shed walls.

One of the end castings seemed to be on the soft side and was also bowed outwards.

I used Gorrilla superglue gel to assemble the main building parts after much fettling..

In my opinion, the roof kit design has too much of an overhang so I set about reducing the overall size quite considerably. This was made difficult as the roof has a skylight which needed some consideration.
I also wanted to disguise the thickness of the roof moulding to give a much finer profile and this I did by `feathering` all visible edges to make them look thinner.

The guttering and fascia are one complete moulding......

....but these had to be de-constructed for me to use just the guttering in a closer finer position in relation to the roof tiles.  I then fitted a new fascia from Evergreen plastic strip.

The remainder of the modifications were quite simple. I fitted the same roof capping to match the station and tidied up the roof skylight. The next item was to fit new drainpipes to the end of the building as in the prototype. The the final task has been to Milliput all of my corrective stonework .

And so, finally I have gone from this...................................................................  this........................

And now she is ready for painting.....

Another fine construction.  It looks wonderful: I love those ridge tiles.  Look forward to seeing it all painted and in location.
