Another fairly simple project here and one that is quite effective with next to no cost and well within the capabilities of most modellers if they have been following the Barchester projects. Or even if they haven't.

In this first photograph there is the simple base of a flat piece of card of the required size for our model, obviously different for different scales, and the upright edges glued to the underside of the base are there to give a little height so that we have an excuse for adding steps. The steps are simply different widths of card glued one on top of the other. The timber corner supports can be anything from matchsticks to timber mouldings, again depending on scale. Note the corners cut out of the base to accommodate the posts. The roof sides and ends are simply lengths of card cut to size and shape after having being scribed to represent planking.
On another note, all the bits of offcut card you can see lying on the green mat must never be discarded as about 99% of it will be used on other models.






We can see now that the ends and rear of the structure have been added. The ends are of card panelled fencing made as already described in the Lineside forum. The rear panel can be finished as desired, either the same as the end, just scribed card or, as in this case, a brick paper added on top of card. The steps have been cut in half as I thought this gave a better appearance and balance to the model. All timber (card) colouring has been done with Colron mahogany dye and you can see quite plainly the effect the dye has had on the scribed card.

Now you see that the structure is being made in two distinct halves to make handling and detailing easier. The roof has been added but is only temporary because I didn't have enough corrugated card to do the job the right way round but for our purposes here it's fine. The saw table, of very simple card construction, and circular saw are in position, the saw being a button which has had the teeth filed in it.






Finally we have the two halves added together and more detail added. If you look carefully you can see a man at the rear of the shed spraying preservative on the raw planks of timber.






This is a model that will eventually be part of a baseboard edge cameo that I have in mind for the far side of Barchester's road overbridge
