Good heavens Dave - you can build these things faster than my computer can load the images !!!:shock::shock::shock:

Surely you can spare 5 minutes on the Friday to finish my module for me - I've got some screws !!!:cheers

Nearly forgot - great looking models and well up to the "WCM" standards (which must have been a pig to do in "N" gauge). :thumbs

Seriously the signal box was very easy to build. First I drew out the basic plan on paper then just placed the clear acrilic sheet over the plan and stuck on the vinyl strips. Once I had done all the sides I just glued it all together. It still needs a set of steps so im just hoping that they have some at the Stockton modeller on sat. :thumbs

So far I have only managed the front wall of the feeder station building....









 
Im not 100% sure about the proportions of this building as the pics I have to work from arn't that great! I have a feeling that the walls are too high but I will have a better idea when the rest of the walls are done.

My guess would also be that the walls are slightly too high Dave - it looks a little more "dumpy" than the one in the photo but what the hell, it's a great start.

How did you do the little windows at the top ?  Is it a print-off stuck onto the acrylic sheeting ?  Looks very good. :thumbs

The wall is built up of 1mm card overlaid on to some clear plastic sheet. Both the card and the clear plastic were 'freebies' from asda. The top windows are just strips of light grey vinyl stuck to the clear plastic shell. It's the height that im not sure about as the only pics I have are google earth ones. I estermated the buildings size by using a scalescenes door. A closer look at the pic of the real building shows that the building is actualy taller as there is a metal girder laid in the fore ground. I have tried the wall section on the layout and it looks ok when compared with stock and other buildings so I suppose I will just have to see how this one turns out. At least if I have to make another I will know how they go together now!

Cheers Gaz looking forward to starting our new project after the show ( need to start a thread hint hint !!). :lol:

Hi Mike having tried the building next to some 00 stock last night the height looks ok. I was going to fit a 10mm thick roof as the prototypes had quite thick ones but I think that I will get away with using 5mm foamex so not to exagerate the height any more. :thumbs
