Exactly, Wayne.

I think there has to be an overall plan of action, e.g. what needs doing and when, because the order in which some processes are carried out can be very important. Then when you feel you have broken the tasks down into manageable sized steps they can be started. As you rightly say, it's probably best not to look at something and realise that you have to carry out one task perhaps 50 times, because it could be quite discouraging. All one needs to do is crack on - and not give up.

Almost all the beams have been fitted in place. There are just a few more that need fitting at the ends of the gutters when they are dry:



The gutters were cut and shaped from .040" plastikard then profiled using the scraper technique I have described elsewhere on the forum.

Unfortunately they don't show up well on the following picture, so you'll have to take my word for it that they look the part! :thumbs



The downpipes will be added last, so the next task will be to complete the main entrance.

Apart from a few external details such as the downpipes and lightning conductor which will be added after painting, the main construction is now complete. :Happy

Interior fitting out will be carried out at a later stage.

The main entrance has been fited and steps added outside both doors:



This is what I set out to achieve:



...and here is the final picture before painting:

It looks stunning, Perry.  You should take it down there and show them.

Stunning it is but there's no way on earth I would dare touch it with a paintbrush.

I don't think that will happen; it's bad enough having to show it on here. :oops:  :oops:

I'm going to leave it for a day or two now, just so I can look at it with a fresh eye. It's surprising how often I notice things that still need doing before painting.

Perry, what a super model you have there. I especially like the way you did the windows, they do look the part quite well.

Can't wait to see it painted!

I can cope with emulsion on the walls of our apartment Perry but to let me loose on a thing like your model would be criminal.

I'll pass final judgement when painting is complete, but this could well be the best you have done :exclam:exclam It certainly is competing very strongly with the goods shed and I would be delighted to have such a model on my layout.

Thanks for the kind comments guys. :thumbs

Phill: Don't hold your breath for the lighting. I don't intend doing the interior for some time yet. I've got lots of other stuff on the layout that I want to do first.

What would be nice is to get some work done on the layout. :thud This scratchbuild has taken me just over two months so far - and that's without painting it and doing the interior!

I have previously posted a picture in the Goods Shed thread showing roughly where that will stand, and the current Co-op building will be going fairly close to the Town Cross - on the sub-baseboard over the two bridges.

Sorry to disappoint you, Phill, but I'm a long way from having a camera-ready layout to show. I enjoy the construction of the buildings as much as I enjoy operating the layout, so any progress I make in either direction is OK by me. I'm enjoying the modelling and not just the 'testing', although I try to make time for both! :cool wink
