Hi

Thought you might like to see progress on the goods shed for Much Murkle (see layouts). I wanted to base the shed on one of the more unusual shed designs found on the GWR. The sheds at Princetown, Cardigan, Culkerton and Coleford were all similar in design. The buildings were substantial, unusually tall but with no internal rail access. I used the dimensions from Princetown as I had access to scale drawings but the building aesthetic details are adapted for the area I'm modelling.

This was a mock up and gives a good idea of the shed, office and platform arrangement



The sides and ends cut from card. Each wall consists of a thin card layer sandwiched between two 2mm card layers which gives a scale one and a half brick wall thickness   




Red brick on the outside with blue brick lintols. The cills are waiting for their blue bricks to be applied.




The white painted brick interior




The walls and internal platform ready for assembly



Three views of the basic goods shed loosely assembled. The windows were lined using a Correction Fluid pen.







 



I'll post more as it progresses

Can't wait Nick !

What glue have you used to bond the layers together, and did you use a weight to keep it all flat.

Hi Alan

PVA glue brushed on neat throughout, read somewhere that if you use an odd number of layers it minimises the tendency for the card to warp. Once glued though each wall was left under a heavy weight (3 full box files) whilst the glue set. The platform inside will give some bracing when it's glued together.

:hmm Can't take the photo whilst I'm using it but it should be fairly obvious how it works from the picture, in fact just like a pen. It is intended to be used to correct typing / writing mistakes.

It only comes in white and will only draw one thickness of line. You shake to get the flow going (like the drawing pens if you've ever used one) and squeeze slightly as you draw the line. You need to practice a bit to be able to get good consistent results.

I got mine from Staples in the UK but it should be available in any good stationers in Aus I would have thought but maybe under a different name.



Close up of the tip

The Tippex brush used to be all you could get Owen - I've got a whole box of them somewhere  (we used it elsewhere, not for typos).  It dries almost instantly so you can only use it with the supplied brush - far too uncontrollable - as you say - yukk !!!

No matter what implement you are using, it's very neat work on those windows.

Good evening chaps. I've made a little more progress and the shed now has an office and a loading platform. I'm not sure about the office windows, the bars look a bit too thick to me now I've glued them in place :brickwall What do you all think, critical comments welcome





I hate close up photos, they show up all the faults:sad: 

I hadn't noticed the water spot on the brickwork in the shot below, I'll have to run a downpipe over it or some strategically placed ivy or something. Nor had I noticed that the blue brick lintel over the doorway is half a course above the opening :brickwall

The water spot is easily covered with a bit of weathering. From the camera angle you have chosen the lintel is more serious but will it be noticeable from a normal viewing angle? I have to agree with you about the bars, they are far too thick and spoil an other wise excellent model. I know it's infuriating but if I were you I would do the windows again.

Hi Nick

That looks really nice. I agree the bars are too thick but at the same time they are not thick enough! What I mean is old buildings tended to have quite chunky wooden frames. Perhaps try making them out of 20/20 thou microstrip instead? I am being extra picky here though because you did ask.

Cheers

Jim

I have been using the wrong word, thick when I meant wide. Two very different things.
