That's a good 'un Sol. Could find a place on a lot of layouts.

That looks excellent Sol - and for free it's amazing although I'm sure much of it is in the hands of the builder. :roll::roll::roll:

Before I can use Scalescenes I'll have to buy a new printer.  Mine (a Lexmark X75 all-in-one) makes a real pigs ear of anything like that.  The colours are way out. :twisted::twisted:

Peter, over here, we can obtain colour printers which copy & scan for less than the price of a locomotive - some as low as 35-40 quid.

Bob, on my previous layout, Iva Brick & Son fitted in , I had plenty of room for private sidings, etc, in fact my small terminal of Watchit ( this one was just before Iva Brick was built)




I ended up with 8 different places top drop/pick up wagons & with 3 other larger stations, I had many more places. Unfortunately, this new layout, while it has more roundy-roundy running, has less stations, so less places to drop/pickup. Even last night at a "play"session with some friends, it was noted that perhaps I should have not only remained with the previous incarnation but the one before that - East Coast North American & there was someting to be said about time in my hobby life.

Ah well, we live & learn!

 Nice building, Ron, but is it gratis

 Can you please tell me exactly what it's printed onto?  Scalescenes mention printing straight onto card. Is that what you did, and where did you get the card, please? No-one around here seems to have anything suitable.

Mike

 edit: it's ok  I just read your other Scalescenes thread. Cereal box card eh? I've used that in the past as well, but I hate having to cut things out twice. That's one of the reasons I haven't built much in this way.

Gratis for the file that is downloaded, but it cost us paper ,ink & card, You possibly could print some of it on thin card but most relies on glueing it to card upto 2mm thick. Usually art shops have all thickness of card.

When I was in the UK I bought all my quality card from the local printers.

That's interesting Bob - pretty cheap compared with the local art shop I'd imagine.

Here, I have to drive 2 hours to find a decent source and even then,  the thickness or grade I want isn't in stock !!!

Much cheaper but of course it did come in big sheets, as it does here in Benidorm. If you only need a small amount then an art shop or photographers might be better. The bigger branches of Smith's in the UK also sell card.

Another one of the freebies. Built by many I think



All the bits  glued to card & cut out & the paper parts to be wrapped & glued.




It won't be used as a Goods but Railway Stores shed. Now to start putting it together.

Slowly coming together - the ramp is twice as long as the download version

I guess that's the beauty of them.  You can add bits where you want.

Nearly finished
Instead of the panel roofing, I used corrugated iron & also fitted my style of Gutters similar to the Goods Shed I built for Watchit - 2 thin pieces of card glued to make a right angle



Door handle is a Peco track pin cut & shaped.





Downpipes are being made & will be installed when this shed is located at Charde. It will probably take me as long to site the shed & ground terrain as it took to build it.

The other side  will be against the run-around loop to allow odd vans, etc  to unload direct into the railway stores shed.

That looks excellent Sol. :thumbs

Looking at the slope on the ramp, I'd say it needed to be twice the designed length - trying to push a barrow up one half that length might have been a bit difficult ............:roll:

I like the corrugated iron - what is it ?

Looking excellent Sol.

They really are great little kits although they do take time to build - as I'm finding with my parade of terraced shops ...............:roll::roll::roll:

Actually Marty, the gutters were easy, paper folded over & then bent.
It does seem that that kit R002 is no longer available but I have asked John Wiffen about it - he was going to provide an updated kit with a longer ramp.

I asked John Wiffen about the R002 & this is his reply


Hi Ron,I have an updated version of the kit waiting in the wings, should be back on the site later in the year. In the meantime, please feel free to mention that I’m happy email copies of the original kit to modellers if they get in contact with me.
Happy modelling!
Kind regards
John

Hi Guys
I have the Original .PDF and as it was a freebie I don’t THINK John Wiffen will object if I email it to anyone who asks, but I object to piracy of someone's work so no move without his say so.


Regards card building I can say that it is possibly the fastest and cheapest way to fill large spaces on the layout. Also, I use a “Silhouette Portrait” to cut the main printed faces of the building and block cut out the backing. John uses a belt and braces approach which is excellent and supplies interiors which are superb but mainly not visible in normal use. The “Portrait” can also cut card as it’s a horizontal Flat Bed drag knife cutter so I can use it to cut card when needed. My main problem is finding the correct thickness of card.
Regarding card I used to use genuine Weetabix boxes as they were strong but pliable but dwindling income and rising prices mean we have been eating, (fill in store name here ibix), for years.


Still, must contact Mr Wiffen.

Regards
Jim
