The 1920s  'Standard' GWR brick-built buildings were constructed with bull-nose corners, so it looks like the M.M. crew were 'on the thieve!'

I also like the rounded corners Nick and I was about to ask how you did it !! :hmm:hmm

Your dead right DD - there were many, many buildings with those corners - often little railway buildings like this weighbridge and again - spot on with the glazed tiles - sometimes white which looked like a public convenience turned inside out !!!!

Bob will love you Nick - another card modeller :thumbs:thumbs

p.s. Thanks for the tip on the freezer labels Bob - the awnings look great.   Lateral thinking again.   :cheers

Have to agree with Nick about the camera being cruel, Maybe there is a good side to this though ,it may make us even more particular about the quality of our work . I though my viaduct on Blossom Hill was passable ,but having seen it from the camera point of view it could and should be a lot better .  Reminds me of school "must try harder":shock:

I woz gonna tell'em you did that!  I believe it was done at Pendon, too.

Much of this glazing/glue problem goes back to the fact that the thin transparency stuff doesn't glue with MEK .  Where the slightly increased thickness is not a problem, the clear plastic from CD cases, which glues well with solvent glues, does a good job, and lends some strength to the job, as here where there is little to support the single thickness card over the double door. It also scratches nicely to give a good impression of a cracked pane. The frames are cut from matt photo paper, laid in place and a little MEK run underneath to bind it to the plastic.

Sorry Doof but we have warned you before about posting pictures of real things and claiming they are models :twisted:

The fine is to send one of these buildings to a moderator based in Cornwall but not one of the ones on the seaside...

No, don't send it to a moderator in the UK but to a Mod down under, in the middle of Australia, just where I live, will do. :mrgreen:

Oi you lot isn't there a law against hijacking :It's a no no:lol::lol::lol:

Doof, that is some seriously good modelling but please keep your pics of my thread because they make me feel totally inadequate :cry: ;-) :lol:

Ok all of you, I've been convinced that the rounded corners may after all look ok. I can't do anything about the windows on this model now as they are glued in place and sandwiched between two skins of cardboard. Building construction work has stopped at Much Murkle for now while the horticulturists move in to lay some grass and undergrowth. I'm going away for a few days later this week and will post some more pics when I get back.

You are not alone with that feeling - I am almost tempted to give up modelling and take up something else when I see that sort of standard - question is what ? :sad:

In the last few days, I've made a start on the goods shed for MM. The dimensions are from the shed at Princetown which is of a similar design to the sheds at Culkerton, Coleford and Camarthen.  

It is made of laminated card and only loosely assembled hence the big gaps in the corners. There's still lots to do, not least the roof. There is an office building and railside loading platform still to build.

Hi Alan

The windows are lined using a Correction Fluid pen straight onto some clear acetate. It take a bit of practice to get a decent result but is quite effective and yes, all the papers are Salescenes, well spotted.

I've started a thread in the scratchbuilding to log progress on the goods shed that I hope might be of interest to some folk.
