Good question Phill.  If I take off the time for the paint and glue to dry not to mention endless cups of tea proberly about 2 hours. The foamex board is easy to work with and the real beauty of using the signwriting vinyl is that I get a high gloss painted finish that is self adhesive straight off the roll! I didn't even have to print off the brick sheet as I found four A4 ones in the spares box. The station building design that I use is very easy to build so that helps quite a bit. :thumbs

Now that I have this months baseboards out of the way I thought I had better finish off the NSE platform 3 building. The left hand side is now a waiting room that will match the one on the previous building whilst the false wall in the middle now features three doors and a row of windows across the top.

Cheers Peter. No the platform is the old crappy hornby one that was origanaly outside in the garden hence it's a bit bent! I will get round to building a length of platform at some point so that I can photograph the buildings on for the website. :roll: :thumbs

It may be "old crappy Hornby" but it doesn't look too bad at all when you ignore that tight curve. :hmm

I think this one is the best one for me so far. I mean the other station was great but this one IMHO is the best out of the 2.

Like the false doors and the skylight. Who would of thought of those touch's well done mate.

Thanks for all the comments I must admit that each building I do seems to get slightly better than the previous one. Well I do have a couple of unusal structures that will be coming up shortly including a very large platform canopy. To test my theory of how this canopy is built I will be building a small version of it shortly and will then modify it for use as a bus station that I can then use as an additional display at the shows. But first for somthing a bit different and not railway related. I while back I mentioned about making some of our local town centre buildings well today I have been experementing with Churchill house. This building was one of the first bits of our town centre completed and was origanaly the offices of the Aycliffe Development Corporation when the town was first built. The building later became the job centre and the offices of the DHSS before becoming empty. Today the building is due to be demolished along with the town clock tower that stands next to it. I thought that it would make a good background for the heatherburn so here is my efforts so far..









I still havn't decided weather to build the complete building or just the front although at 2' long it looks realy cool!

Got a bit more done last night unfortunatly its slightly too big for 00 although I have some 'tall' 00 figures that look ok with it. I have decided then to finish the complete building including the clock tower and use it on my westcoast display at the shows, etc.



You are never far away from a dog in our house !

That's another masterpiece coming along Dave. :thumbs

Very, very typical of those concrete and steel blocks resembling eastern Europe.  I wonder if they used the same architect ? :roll::roll:

With the two recent shows behind me I can get back to doing the west coast stuff. At the moment I have three projects in the pipeline. First is continuing with the second stage of building the manchester layout. The second will be a distintive station building for a YMR forum member and finaly once I have costed up the brass I will be building some OHLE for the Dunsyre exhibition layout that I did the signal box for. I also have the fiddle yards for the YMR set up to build so a busy couple of months coming up for me I think! I have just eddited the westcoast home page to try and stop the text from wrapping round but the website will be changing again when I get some free time as my dad has just registered the domain name westcoastminiatures.com and we will be hosting the site ourselves. Should be fun !! :roll:

After an uncertain couple of months im about to start another station building project this time in N gauge. Should be good practice for my trumptonshire layout ! The building will be similar the the origanal Shaftesbury NSE station building but finished in red brick with regional railways blue trim. One end will have a WHSmiths whilst the other end will be a waiting room. Now where did I put my glasses !!

When I first started this build I didn't think that the building would look good in N gauge but thankfully it actualy looks better!











Just to prove the size heres my 00 gauge DBSO



With this build I have done a Jim and used double sided tape. Much easer and no glue marks! Now that I have the first wall done I will now do the other.
