A very productive afternoon today building a set of baseboards for an N gauge layout......











There are four baseboards that bolt together to form this 8'x4' layout. For a sense of scale an eight coach HST has been used in the pics. Tomorrow I will cut all the legs to size and bolt them on ready for delivery to site on Wed evening. :thumbs

The shot with the train shows the real advantage of "N" but oh dear, the poor old eyes ..........:roll::roll:

More progress on the baseboard build. Yesterday I cut some shaped blocks that hold the frame together as well as all the legs. The legs are bolted on so that they can be removed if required.













Last night I filled in the screw heads on the frame and corner gaps so all that is needed now is a quick rub over with some sandpaper before delivery tonight.

Managed today to get the lettering for Portisheads station building and also some wills cladding for the platform walls. After studying the pics I have gone for the concrete blockwork as this is the closest match to the origanal.

Latest update on Portishead. The platform canopy is nearing compleation. Here we are before priming with the leds taped up..




A bit of primer..







Followed by some concrete coloured acrylic..







Now a few piccys of the canopy with the station building..




I only have one pic of the top of the canopy from the origanal RM artical so I have had to guess a lot of the features but from what I can make out the roof has black sections proberly waterproofing. The glazing is still to be added..




The light shining through the windows at the top looks just like the pics of the real thing !




The bent copper wire is being used for powering the led lights and will be discuised as a drain pipe..




A couple of close ups showing the window apatures. I have left a small recess in front of the window as I think that this is where the rainwater would have gone...







 Overal shot...




Lastly for a height comparason with the origanal structure..




Still quite a bit to do like second coat of paint, add glazing, etc and then there is the platform to build. Looks good when compared with pics of the prototype though ! :thumbs

That is 'miniature civil engineering', certainly. looks like the sort of model you see as a planning project display at town halls, etc.  :thumbs

Very appropriate to use  my 1000th forum post to say a very well done for this Dave   as it has far exceeded my original expectations for how the project would look .  I cannot wait to see how it will look when we get to the extra platform sections - big is a understatement.

Thank you once again - your skill has made all the research efforts well worthwhile.
