Dave

If your customer is not really super impressed with this signal box i would suggest brain surgery for him.

Extremely well done.

And i do hope you are charging plenty of dosh for this.

cheers Brian

Expect some more progress in this thread soon as I have just taken another order for two platform shelters and a station platform building. The signal box is still sitting on the shelf requiring the door finishing off although im still awaiting the cheque to turn up !! I will also be starting the layout building project in the new year so all in all a positive start to 2010. ;-)

I just hope you are pricing these items correctly and not giving them away. Time and skill aren't cheap by any means.

Those are my concerns as well Bob.  It's no good being swamped with orders and only making £5 per order !!!

You make brilliant and unique stuff Dave - price it accordingly.  You don't actually want a flood of orders, you need a steady trickle giving you the time to make them and leaving a sensible margin otherwise,  you'll soon get sick of working under pressure for peanuts so that others can enjoy the fruits of your labours.

Yesterday I had a nice supprise at work. As you all know I work part time as a handyman at our local Asda. Now those that know me will know that I will help anyone out regardless of the job. Recently I have helped a couple of the lasses out with taking down the christmas hanging displays and putting up the new stuff. Anyway with out going off topic yesterday I was given 17 brand new plastic end covers. These are large 1' x 4' sheets of clear plastic that are almost identical to the small sheets that I use for my buildings so now I have big stock of material for free !! I have also been offered some very large sheets of 2mm card aprox 6' x 4'.  :thumbs

With two model shows comming up in March I thought it was about time I updated the website to include building projects to date. I have simplyfied the look slightly and added the extra pages although they will be replaced with the propper ones when time allows! :roll: :thumbs

Today I have finished off the second small waiting room and started on the platform 3 building.



This end of the platform 3 building is made up of three bays. Starting from the end closest we have the ladies toilets, gents toilets and the office...



The other end will be a waiting room...



To give the waiting room more depth the rear wall is covered with a mirror finish..



The bit in the middle will be open to allow placement of vending machines, etc. With the roof on, this area looked a bit dark so I have opened up a section of roof to allow some natural daylight in..



The roof has been glazed using clear corelux sheet..



The light now coming through is seen better here..

Todays update of last nights progress. First I sprayed thr basic building shell with grey primer.....



Next I built up the front wall starting first with the toilet doors and windows..





With the fascia board held in place the shape of the building comes to life..



The parcel office door is also built up from vinyl..





With the brickwork added...





NSE flashes on the fascia boarding..



The side of the parcels office has been fitted with a roller shutter door...



Toilet doors...



Building so far..







Work will now move on to the waiting room at the other end.

That's both slick and quick Dave :thumbs:thumbs

Amazing what a difference a bit of paper makes.  I was struggling to see how you were going to carry on after fitting the doors.  It looks great.:cheers
