I would`nt want you to think I hav`nt been busy .....
So, after a lot of thought about an Engine Shed for my ,as yet, unnamed change of layout focus I settled on building  William Clarke style version from Invertrain Models.

There are few if any completed models of this 7mm resin kit on any of the modelling forums that I frequent so the kit has been an unknown entity.

I have chosen the same modifications to the kit as I did for the Station Building kit and the Goods Shed kit that went before.

 This time , however, I needed to consider some inside detailing work using slaters embossed stonework sheets, as well as the stonework re-engraving on the outside.  The corners , in particular, needed further work with Milliput to disguise the corner joins.



I was not happy with the supplied shed doors and I decided to remake these with plasticard and make my own hinges from scrap brass.





As before I trimmed the roof size and assembled with the supplied roof trusses to be a separate stand alone unit to aid painting and adding internal shed detailing.



The roof vent also needed to be re-sized to fit the remodelled main roof unit....



Just the window units and chimney to fettle and fit ...then into the paint shop.......

The shed is finally ready for the paint stage.........


Overall, the project needed a lot of extra remodelling work using Milliput to bring it all up to what I consider to be finescale standard.



I completely rebuilt the chimney stack and added the ridge tiles to match the rest of my buildings for this project.



I think she now looks more Great Western in appearance.......

Just the chimney stack to paint up and the shed is completed enough to plant in place on my layout.




It`s Sunday afternoon and the shed  is shut  for the time being................................................

Thankyou John B and Terry,
Despite the Pandemic I have been busying myself with the layout, so it`s about time I continued with the journey.....

Things were stripped back to just the trackwork which was etched primed with Clostermann rattle can grey.




followed by airbrushing with Phoenix Precision track enamels.



as the trackwork wiring and performance has been tested for nearly three years I will leave using a sharp blade to clean the rail tops till after ballasting.


But before then I have used 422 modelling  platform stonework products which I have modified to make more Great Western.





Then a bit of fun with more polystyrene and lightweight filler as an experiment with perspective.




Messy work and then more experimentation with acrylic paints which were referenced to the fibre grass colours to be used later on.




Then time for some railway related lineside Chapel building as a scenic break





Then , to the other end of the station platform some Balsa Wood work making a GWR style coal stage......note the height of the platform which in many cases was much higher to help the poor fireman shove coal into the loco bunkers.....





So, I`m slowly progressing........





I`d get on even quicker if I stopped getting diverted into yet more loco builds.....




She`s currently in the paint shop.................

Thanks John,  £300 plus postage.
Not an easy kit to make though.
