Now my post office is getting closer to the finish point stage i have decided to start looking at the next one

This is a similar shape but has a gable ended extention on the back and is brick and not stone so a bit more diffficult .

I did chicken out of the coaching inn next as that has multiple roof slopes but that may come after this one

I wont do this one blow by blow but when i do bits that are differant from the last one i will explain them in detail

heres a piccy of the box


 

cheers Brian

Was that box lid "bent" when you photographed it Brian ?  There seems to be something wrong with the perspective. :roll::roll::roll:

peter yes i think the box was bent when i photographed it.

Well with this one i will post just significant points as to a degree things are the same so i will only post things that are differant really than the post office.

With these shops there are more bits to cut because of the the extended building at the back.

So heres a piccy of all the required cut pieces with all window door rough cut outs done




cheers Brian

It's not just the quality of the finished article that impresses me Brian - it's also the speed at which you seem to get things done !!  No sooner have you built the Post Office than you've got all those parts cut out for the shops. :shock::shock::shock::shock::shock:

Do you sleep much ? :roll::roll::roll::roll:

 I actually supplied the completed model they used for the box. Looks right to me :shock:

Any plans to detail inside, Brian?

Peter

It does not take that long to do once you get your head down and crack into it.

True its not as quick as an Airfix type kit or as fast as a Metcalfe type card kit.

But myself i must say i am extremely pleased with the end results and if you use the 4 foot rule these are 6 inch models.

Mike yes there are detail drawing for this aswell in fact there are more than the post office i will take a photo later'

Sorry Mike i just realised i misread what you said yes i may detail some things inside but i need to keep things in perpspective i have a very large build list and i have to remember if i spend to much time inside detailing thats time off the next build.

IF i were building a layout 4ft x 2ft with say 6 buildings in total yes more time on interior detailing but with the size of my project i have to be realistic with my time

cheers Brian

Quick update showing the base structure glued together after all the corner mitering is done this shows that this kit is a bit more complicated than the basic rectangle of the post office







i may do some more this morning so i will update later

Do you mean you made up the kit for the box lid Mike or what ?

It's certainly more complicated than the post office Brian but going together very well. :thumbs

I'm sure I don't need to ask which one !!!

Brian - that's brilliant and, as Mike said, I'm as merry as he is honoured :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

They're looking really good.  I'm thinking of trying the Wills watermill for an idea I've got for my module so this thread is proving doubly interesting to me. :cheers:cheers:cheers

I think these Wills Shops are a cracking kit.
Very adaptable and can be joined to other shops.
Can take up a lot of room on a small layout though.

Here's a pic. of an example I'm restoring from one I made years ago.

I've started an inconsequential thread in 'Scratch Building'.
Most of my work these days is restricted in size because of the mailing problems.

Sorry Brian!
