Thanks guys. Peter the solder 'blobs' are where I 'tinned' the copper wire. This will make soldering the led's on easer. ;-)

Ok todays piccys.......

First the retail unit. Quite pleased with the look of this bit! The windows have been finished with two bands of frosted glass and the doors have been fitted with chrome handles. Will look great once the led's are fitted.....







View down the platform.....




The station names are temporarily stuck with tape case they need to be changed...







Gents toilet note the metal plate on the door base....




The door was a bit fiddley but looks just like the prototype including the metal kick plate, sign and even the cream coloured blinds!



Just the lighting to fit now then I can glue the top section of roof on and fit the roof trim. That retail unit has given me a great idea for fitting under a canopy. ;-)

Had to go down the town this morning and had an idea for a future model. Out town centre has been run down for years and plans are for a redevlopment. One local landmark to go will be our libary. This building has recently been vacated and is due to be demolished soon but the construction looks very similar to the buildings that I have been making. Plan is to take loads of piccys and then build a model of it then contact the local paper and see if they will do a feature. Sounds like a plan to me! :thumbs

Led's arrived this morning....




Apart from soldering half of them in backwards (luckly I reliased!) installation was straight forward....










Bit of a woops moment when I came to solder on the wires as I ment to do it before I fitted the end wall. Thanks to a home made heat shield (bit of the metal left off the display case) the problem was sorted...




A quick test.....













The blue backlit panel above the retail unit works realy well....




Now the lights are fitted time to finish the roof. :thumbsl
