Thanks Owen. Well the building now finished and looks great outside in the sunshine just wish my camera would take pics in sunlight! Here's my best efforts. The nameboards have been changed so I can use some pics on the website.















Going to make a box with a backscene stuck on that I can take outside. ;-)

Cheers. Made a makeshift backdrop and took it outside....




Then had a play with some photo editing to make a new background for my desktop....




Next task is to rig up a power supply and go back out when it gets a bit darker to picture the lights. Looks like a website update is on the cards shortly. :thumbs

Looks fantastic Dave. :thumbs:thumbs

Your client will be very pleased with that.  Lets hope it generates plenty of new orders.

Have you got it all properly costed now ?  That bit worries me because, if you do get plenty of orders, you'll be working your little whatsits off for peanuts and it's always much more difficult to increase prices than it is to drop them.

Lets just say that this ones more relisticly priced compared with the one that went on ebay. With this building I have learnt some new tequnics with regard to the tricky 'entrance doors' and by making the roof up of three sections made fitting the wiring for the lights a piece of p***! The build took longer than anticapated mainly due to the delay with the led's but I ordered extra as I expect some more enquiries once this one makes it's public apearence! ;-)

As long as you're happy with your costings and margin Dave,  that's great.

Whilst it's not for me (wrong era),  I'm absolutely certain the orders will come in.

If the time was due to delays in delivery of parts,  then that's certainly not a problem.  What would be a problem is if you'd allowed 4 hours "actual building time" and it took you 6. :hmm

Ok you are all proberly getting board with this one now so here's a final selection with the lights on (got to be a header pic somewhere!;-))

This first one shows how effective the mirrored vinyl is. Its hard to think that all this light is from two 3mm led's......









This one takes me back 25 years when I took the pics of the prototype station. The only real diffrence is the conversion of the bike shed to a retail unit...












Took loads more along with some video so I can start putting together an advert to post on you tube. :thumbs

Thanks guys for all the feedback. Got loads of pics for the webste so I will be doing an updat again soon! Ok with the inital enquiry about the station building I was also asked about a matching canopy so that got me thinking.... Last night whilst waiting for the email to come through with the contact details for the free car I came up with a simple but intresting design for the canopy. On the second platform there are usualy a second set of toilets and a covered waiting room. So I came up with the idea of a couple of 'pods' supporting a large roof. The idea is that the pods can be mixed and matched according to the clients requirements so here we have the toilet pod.....




And here's the waiting room....




They both need the roof supports painting but with the roof on look somthing like this....




Sorry about the blured pics im having camera trouble again!! Anyway the view back towards the station building is somthing like .....










Again I will offer them with or without lights but I think that they will be a usefull add on to the emerging range of buildings. :roll:
