Well here is the next project to be finished in Scalescenes Ashlar TX45 paper. I'll post as I go along, according to the text the pipes and woodwork were a dull red oxide colour and the shutters on the ground floor matched in neither size or colour, being green and two shades of brown!

I have tried using thin [1mm] strips of sticky label for the windows with little success so I guess I'll be cutting them out of photo paper again...yech!

Doug

looking forward to this one Doof. I've stayed clear of the Scalescenes stone papers so far as I have always thought that Ashlar needed some relief to look right so will follow this with interest to see how it works out.

Hullo, Ian,

The rate I work at I'll be doing the last one at 90 years of age! It would be nice to do one of each type of building, for instance I'd love to do 'Bert's Garage' but I've nowhere for it on my layout.

Best wishes,

Doug

If you want to do the 'White Hart' I'd be tempted to build a layout specially to put it on! It's always been one of my favourites.

Could you sort of have a project running, where others could try and build a building at the same time as you posting as they go and then you can show them how to do it, and help as you all move forward ?

Herewith the 'plan' for the warehouse in 4mm/1ft scale......




In the case of a building being used as a low relief structure, realism is enhanced by modelling the roof ridge line and a little of the far side of the roof. This allows flat relief materials [backdrops etc or pieces of 'tree'] to be inserted behind the top building to lessen the 'pushed up against the wall' effect. Similarly, increasing the pitch of the roof by about 50% further improves the deception as it makes it more difficult to see the other side. Some buildings, however, like the harbour office have steep pitches [45 degrees] to start with and the alteration would be unnecessary. I have over-drawn the side elevation [the hatched area] to show my intended side profile.


Woody-'I've stayed clear of the Scalescenes stone papers so far as I have always thought that Ashlar needed some relief to look right so will follow this with interest to see how it works out'. I shall do a mock-up first on plain paper, but do it on watercolour paper or acrylics paper if it looks too flat.

Ian - which White Hart?  Sorry, I've got a really thick head cold and I'm not thinking straight!

Alan/Stubby - If you want to join in with this one, I've added the overall wall to wall length of 192mm so you can scale-up the drawing above. With that, and the original, you have what I've got to work on.

Doug

Doug - You're the first one to call me 'Woody' on the forum :thumbs, and without any prompting from me. I've been referred to as 'Woody' by my friends for forty years or more and I'm quite happy for those here to be considered my friends. Woof Woof!!

Looking forward to seeing how the Ashlar works out.

If you are to print out some window frames to cut out, it might help to know that '1 point' = 0.35mm when you come to set out your window frames.

"Ian - which White Hart?  Sorry, I've got a really thick head cold and I'm not thinking straight!".  See Pages 135/6 of J Ahern's book.

Do you happen to know which North Wales harbour town this building is in ? I'm guessing Conwy, or maybe Caernafon - if so, it wood (sorry, would) be good to get some photos of the building, should it still exist.

Sorry, I forgot to say I had realised which 'White Hart', it is a lovely building. Sadly it doesn't say where the warehouse really is, does it? As I don't know the area I'll have to bow to your knowledge.

Printed out in the normal way onto satin photo-paper and cut out carefully, the windows take shape. I imagine they are strong metal glazed frames to offer increased security given the nature of the building so have made them at 2 PT / 0.7mm width on the bars.












Again, coated liberally with matt acrylic varnish as soon as possible to strengthen them they are now ready for a little colour touch-up on the cut edges. When dry and much stronger, a new blade cuts out any whiskers or uneveness.

4 sides per 16 panes per 6 windows plus a couple of spares equals 512 separate cuts...yech! 

S'nuff for tonight, now for some RLW..:cheers

That's a lot of repetitive work but it's turning out very well.

I've looked more closely at the images and plans you've published, and reckon that the 40-odd ft of frontage will just fit at the end of the Polbraze township, so I too will be making this warehouse.

I'm not saying it will be as good as Doug's but it will be as close to the drawings as I can achieve.

Just a picture to show progress to date, the widow sills need colouring in etc, and first attempts at lightly texturing the Scalescenes TX47 Coursed Rubble.

It's the second model, I tried it with Ashlar, it just didn't look right.

I have real reservations about the two panelled doors that Ahern shows in his sketch, I've tried them out and they don't look right, so I'll try some solid boarded doors in the same material as the goods doors and flaps.





Doug

Looking good Doug, but it sounds like my thoughts above have been justified somewhat. I'm very interested to know how you gone about texturing the ashlar stonework.

Doug,

Your picture in post #10 shows the front section of the building only juts out a small distance, on your model it seems to be about twice that. Is this intended to be different ?

The Scalescenes paper looks just about perfect.

Stu

Also, and please excuse the thread hijack, this is a picture of a card building using the dark ashlar.

Hi, Woody and Stu,

I 'texture' the same way as Pendon, by impressing sharp edges of screwdrivers etc into the paper to dent the 2mm pasteboard below. At corners I choose a stone shape that goes around the corner and press the edge of my metal ruler into the lower edge and 'roll' it round to the adjoining wall. I have tended to overdo it, I've found that if you do it, say, only 3 or 4 times on each corner of a building and 2-3 times on each face, an observers mind tends to be tricked into believing you've done it all over, providing the paper is a good quality ex-photo print, like the Scalescenes stuff.

The sticky-out bit will be trimmed back to what looks right in due course, it does seem to be very little extra space gained in the real thing for all the extra building complication though....

Doug

PS No hijack there, mate, it's all the same subject and CARD.....not that nasty plastic stuff........[ducks behind parapet, donning tin-hat...]

"donning tin-hat.."

In line with your convictions, it should be a paper hat.

The lower windows and shutters take form, watercolour paper shutters weathered with various reds and browns, hinges from sticky label. All yet to be over sprayed with matt acrylic varnish.

Doug, that is just stunning. How have you created the chipped off piece of window sill in the first photo - is it just two layers of paper ?
The colours are perfect, showing the aged wood, and the rusted bolts just add a magical touch.
Very, very impressed.

Stu

Thank you for your kind remarks...:oops::oops:

Yup, I've doubled the sill paper over lays, but missed out a bit. I'm doing the other windows tonight and will do the same on some of them too.

Lovely job as usual Doug.I'm amazed at your patience in all the cutting out of those window panes!!
I think you were right to use the rougher stone rather than the random ashlar,it looks much more "natural" and atmospheric.Nice touches on the shutters too.
  Great stuff!

Just a quick couple of pictures to show progress, been busy preparing a new 24ft x 3ft 'strowbly' bed, off to get the plants tomorrow....









Desperate for about 2" of very fine chain......when I mentioned it to SWMBO she hid her jewellery box, I wonder why?

My compliments on some fine work there, Doug.
Some of the best paper modelling I have seen.
Certainly the colours are up there with the best.

(I once used a section of a broken real gold chain for a diorama - from a certain nearby jewellery box.
Well, it was only about 2").

Thank you both very much for your replies, Stu, I have pm'd re your kind offer.

[DD, was the result at all painful?]

Turning my attention to the chimneys, I think Mr Ahern meant to illustrate them in brick, as the stone stacks seem too thin to have much of a flue.

However, I have used the Ahern method of wood and paper as shown below....

Thoughts on roof and chimney assembly........

As the roof will be clad in slate strips, each of which will need firm pressing and rolling into place, the substructure for the roof has to be well supported, and substantial, unlike the roof of the harbour office the roof of which was formed from cornflake packet covered with fitted substantial sheets of printed watercolour paper.

Additionally, as the chimney stack is built inwards from the end wall a means of supporting the inboard end of the ridge must be put in place, and extra support provided in way of the small projecting roof  where it joins the main roof, not because it will add weight to the structure, but to resist the pressure I'll need to apply with my fingers whilst gluing it in place.

Careful observation may show that the two inner supports are only tacked in at the corners in case I have to braek them out to trim them or alter their position. I shall eventually add a little fillet of PVA once in place permanently.

Here is the result so far, with my precious piece of 12mm MDF being used to align the brace in all three senses. It really is one of my most useful 'tools', having simply been cut dead square and then lightly varnished to stop PVA soaking into it.




I have already done the shuttered and barred window for the front centre opening, and  finished it as described 'two in two tones of brown paint and one in pale green'.  It looks horrible to my eye!




AAaagh!  Before being sick, look at the drawing and read the text, please :shock:.

Doug


[and as Jimmy Cricket would say....'There's more!', i.e. I have made two panelled doors as per the picture and they do NOT suit the model, I may install my own. Oh why did I agree to this model?]

A nice thing happened to me today, because of YMR, poorly Bob would be pleased, I know.

A little packet of '40 links to the inch' chain arrived today courtesy of 'Stubby' , I was expecting a couple of inches!  Thanks Stu, I respond soon,

Doug

It occurred to me that I had not introduced you to the 'Height Crane', although any fitters or engineers will recognise the principle straight away as it is only a crude variation on working off a surface plate.


Right, sometimes it is not possible to measure and mark out the positions for cut-lines, or places where things should be glued until the model has been partially built, as, with many scratch-builds you don't know how long or high something will be.

So! Having glued the front part of the warehouse onto the main building, I wanted to know precisely where the roof of the extension would meet with the roof of the main building so I used my 'Height Crane'.  Once more my two precious pieces of MDF came into play as shown, the small piece ensuring the large piece was held up at 90 degrees ensuring the end of the pointer would remain the same height when moved about.

Although the roof is shown in position in both these pictures, the method of use should be plain to see, i.e. the height of the peak of the front roof is fixed with the pointer and bulldog clip and transferred to two points on the main building roof.  These points are marked and joined with a pencil line and a pair of compasses are used from the front corners of the extension until by trial and error their traces coincide. That is the point at which the ridge of the little roof joins the big roof. From that point, the compasses can be used to step out the 'arrowhead' shape of the little roof.

No rulers, no guessing, no problem!

Herewith photos to explain etc.

Doug

Thanks, Mike,

Do you get crises of belief halfway through a model? Sometimes it turns into something you didn't think it would be. My usual cure is to put it on the floor and stand on it, but that's not an option with this one.......

Doug

It's looking really great Doug but I think you're right about the colours on the shutters - the green simply doesn't look right :roll::roll:

Maybe this is one of those occasions when you deviate from Mr Ahern's notes............

The indents made with the ruler to mark out the stone courses looks amazingly effective.  :pathead

It's tempting, Peter, but I've decided to stick to the script...................including the two-panelled doors, as you'll see in the pictures below of the finished product.  Not my favourite model to make, but, as our friend says 'Hey-ho!'

When the yellow 'lichen' has really dried and faded a little I will apply a little 'toning-down' and texture with some gouache.

I would really like to know if this model has persuaded any previous 'non-card' modellers to try paper and card construction of a stone  building?

fantastic job. You may well have done this before but I think many of us would appreciate you running through how you manage to so effectively weather your buildings. The roof and the impression of damp at the base of the walls is just superb :pathead

If it's not one of your favourites and it needs a home it could pass as the cider house for Much Murkle ;-) :lol::lol:

Absolutely FABULOUS!!!!! My hero was John Ahern and I have always wanted to model his China Clipper pub. My new project should Pattingham get sold on will be Brinscombe a harbourside layout - just for me, with shades of Madder Port.

Its well up to your usual standards,Doug.It amazes me how you build in "believability" in your buildings! You know its card,I know its card,they know its card....Still looks like stone though,dunnit?
   In answer to your question...yes,I would like to try the same sort of thing in card,but It'd take me a couple of eternities to come up with anything one third as good as you do!

He is for me too and yes absolutely fabulous rightly sums it up.   It's the sort of thing that I'll be hoping to achieve with card etc and what a standard you've set.

Despite pinching this idea for very poor copy in plastic, I too am tempted to have a go at a card version. My only concern would be the colour of the stones, I'd prefer a grey, granite finish, to suit a south-western location.

Yes sir, me! All I need now is a skill transplant between France and Spain and off I go.

Doug, this is the absolute bees knees . Sadly, because of being away in the UK I have only just come across it, so will need to go over it a few times before I start to try the method on station buildings I have to build. This is based on stone blocks (ExStD) of equal size, flat faced and perfectly symmetrical which I believe Scalescenes have in their builders yard.

If you are going on holiday anywhere please leave your forwarding address as I will need you.

I say it again - the absolute bees knees - truly amazing. :shock:

I want to say thank you to all of you who have posted to say you like the model, I'm very grateful as I wasn't sure. It doesn't have any 'cutesy' factor, and alongside my red brick efforts it looks a bit dark and forbidding.

Woody, I'm afraid it has been spoken for, so M'Murkle cider house will have to be your next job, eh? I have done a 'how to' on watercolour weathering, I'll try and find it later and pm you. 

It seems one or two of you will be having a go at a stone paper model, which I'm glad about, and Les, I think you are reffering to Scalescenes TX 49 'Dressed stone', that should do you fine.



by playing about with your printer settings you can change the overall colour quite a bit from a reddy tone to a honey coloured Cotswold effect too.

Once again, thanks for your encouragement,

Doug

Not me, but if there was ever going to be a paper building to do it, this would be the one.
How did you get the paper drainpipe so regular in shape, Doug?

I knew it would be spoken for, just being a bit cheeky. I've started construction of my coal office and when that is finished I will be making my own interpretation to suit Much Murkle, without the green shutters though;-)

Would appreciate the watercolour weathering 'how to', thanks.

You should have known it was made from paper from the Peco tree......

I think these would look really good printed out onto a cartridge-type paper with a very slightly rough surface, or a high-laid writing paper.

Somewhat belatedly can I offer my congratulations as well?:thumbs:thumbs

It is an absolutely superb model and has convinced me to try and upgrade my card modelling skills......right now they tend to be bodged and incorporated in the back scene and I use plastic for all the major structures.......thank you Doug for encouraging me to keep on trying

Regards

Hello Doug,

                  This is an exquisit model with built-in atmosphere. Well, "Mr Kipling", this is exceedingly good. Just not fair, mate, and "Made in France" !!!!:roll::lol: Once I get my health problems resolved and get the basics finished on my Lay-out I would very much hope to be able to make similar models. Roll-on an improvement in 2011,

                                                                                      Kind Regards,

My very best wishes for future good health, , thank you for your kind post,

Thanks, Wogga, if you knew how close this one came to 'the big stamping' you'd be surprised!

Sorry Doof I am way behind on the posts at the moment, so I am a little late to let you know one of your slates needs moving 2mm to the left...

I've asked JW for (and have received) a granite version of TX47, so will be modelling something Cornish fairly soon... maybe in a boxfile...

Hi Marty,

John tweaked his colour rendering as a one-off when I bought the standard version - I'm hoping he will make this and several other sheets available in many colours, as he's done with the bricks.

Hello Doug,

                  When you can model to this standard who needs reality. Even you should be ecstatic with what you have created. You should be all of a tremble, mate,

                                                                               Kind Regards,

                                                                          Michael Thornberry.

A real competition for the next header vote.
Brilliant work.
Your colour choices couldn't be bettered.

Those chimney stacks look fine, Doug.
Completely in scale and looking wide enough to take the flue.

Hullo again, I have received the following information from Walter Otter on RMWeb.....one little mystery solved!


The prototype is on the northside of Porthmadoc Harbour and was recently photographed by someone from Pendon. It was converted to residentiaentl use some 40 - 50 years ago.


If I knew how I'd look at the world camera view things.

Doug

Great Stuff Doug.

You know its good when the man from Kernow models starts wanting you to move odd things 2mm to the left (Its always the left though which is a bit wierd!)

Cheers

Hello Doug and Jim,
"The Man from Del Monte(oops Kernow) he say move everything 2mm to the left. I am actually of the opinion that he suffers from a stammer in his right-eye and generally does most everything a-se about tip and meets himself coming-back - Sorry Chris, couldn't resist, :roll::lol: :pedal:pedal:pedal

Thank you, for the kind remarks, Woody, I hope it doesn't disappoint!  [I once met a famous actress I had doted on for years, and was sadly disappointed, hey-ho!]

Enjoy the show!

Well, at Warley today I stopped by a John's stand and when I had elbowed my way through the throng I saw Doofer's warehouse and customs house.

That ain't a model, it's real, just a bit smaller than normal.

I'm just off to throw my buildings in the bin now....

Belated congratulations on the header picture.

I know I joke about modelling in paper but that sunlight shows just what fine craftsmanship it really is.
Not sure about North Wales - that building could be in the South of France.

Of course, being made of paper, given a strong wind it might end up there.

I've just got back and got to agree with Ian. None of the pictures we've seen here does them justice. I'm going to have to try much, much harder to meet Doug's standards :sad:

On a more positive note, John wiffen's new pub kit looks really good and is out soon :thumbs

It may well be Ron.

I didn't buy it when I was in UK recently - the queue at the tills was too long and then I forgot I hadn't bought it !!!

I did notice there was a freebie pub in it.

Ron - Yes it is - it'll be on the website later on.
Petermac - perhaps it was the new edition at the newsagent, no freebies in that one.

Anybody seen this before?



Built way back when and refreshed for Hintock. I have other shots if anyone is interested. As far as I can recall I did it without reference to JH Ahern-except possibly in my sub-concious for I remember as a boy his books and Madder Valley.

You and I know that, Nick, but I was recommending the thread to a New Member in another thread.
Thank you for your kind thought though.

Again, coated liberally with matt acrylic varnish as soon as possible to strengthen them they are now ready for a little colour touch-up on the cut edges. When dry and much stronger, a new blade cuts out any whiskers or uneveness.

4 sides per 16 panes per 6 windows plus a couple of spares equals 512 separate cuts...yech! 

S'nuff for tonight, now for some RLW..:cheers



Another option for the windows is to cut thin strips of coloured decal sheet and lay out accordingly on a piece of clear sheet. If you require a certain colour, just spray paint a clear piece of decal paper with your desired colour, (wait for it to dry) and slice strips from it.

Cheers, Gary.
