Or microwave it.

I'm confident you will bring it to life whatever process you use, Alan.

Work on the door and the roof tonight, then it's all but finished !!

Thanks Owen

That's a really useful site, I was going to attack the wood to give it that old look, but it's useful to see it done first.

I never ever remember to check the Index Bob !!

Think we should try and find a better way of advertising it to all the members as it can't be only me that forgets

Or maybe I should be looking at that hat again :roll:

That comes up well in the closeup. I like all the diagonal bracing.

Thanks Mike

Do you think I should add all the bolts that hold it all together , and if so what could I use, small heads from pins ?

As that would really help with the overall look of the base.

I think the bolts would make a huge difference Alan.  Could you maybe use tiny bits of plasticard ?  I certainly couldn't but your skills are way ahead of mine and using pin heads wouldn't give the right profile for a bolt.

Peter, here is a link to round head bolts
http://www.masterbolt.com/round_head_bolts.html
so pins would work.

You could use bolts, Alan! I have just checked my stock of 16BA ones which I use in signal construction. They are cheesehead and are a scale 4ins in dia on the head. Sounds a lot, but they are smaller than a pin head, and would really look the part. You can get them from Squires if you don't have a local source.

Well the wooden water tank is finally finished, this has been a very labour intensive job, as most of the wood provided in the kit was warped and nearly each piece had to be stuck on and let dry before the next piece and so on, but it hasn't turned out that bad in the end, and after it has been completely weathered with pastels and installed on the layout, I'm sure it will be okay.




Every piece had to be cut and fitted, any questions please fire away, next job to build more for this little area that I brought last week at Bristol.

A study in patience Alan, seems to have worked out nicely to me.

That's a great result Alan. :thumbs

I can guess it was a B to build but well worth all the effort.

What are the water pipe and roofing felt made out of ?  The felt in particular looks like a very good representation of mineral felt.
