Hi there,
Well as it was snowing yesterday and rather cold I decided to stay cosy and begin work on the goods shed that I have been planning for sometime. there is a link here:
http://www.disused-stations.org.uk/v/ventnor/
that has a picture of the goods shed that was at Ventnor station on the Isle of wight. I have decided to use something similar on my layout.

I am a complete beginner when it comes to scratch building so fingers crossed that I can complete this project with out to many mishaps :mutley

For the framework I have used various thickness's of modelling wood from my local hobby shop. I have some Wills materials packs including stone sheets plus various windows and other gubbins.

Here is a pic of my progress from yesterday

Am I right in assuming this is in OO scale? I like your choice in the goods shed. It will be a great one to break into scratch building.

One step at a time is how they get built. Just do the next thing that you know how to do and if you get stuck, call Perry! :lol:

Hooray! Keep going, LOOT,

Remember, no animals will be intentionally harmed in the manufacture of your first 'scratcher' and  any subsequent structure will be better built and in a shorter time, unless you suffer from FAFFA syndrome like me.

My first scratcher went under the foot in the 'Big Stamp', solves lots of problems!!:lol:

Good luck,

Doug

PS I admire the way you have started with a curved roof line,  and, did you know that Issue 382 [November] of 'Steam Railway' features Calbourne? A dear chum brought me over a copy this week.

A good start L00T, Doug's friendly namings always seems to stick:roll: :lol:

I like the use of structural timber and the unusual prototype you've chosen :thumbs

One of my early projects on here was a goods shed and I got lots of encouragement and help which enabled me to produce something I was really proud of. I'm sure the same will happen for you.
:cheers

looking good for your first attempt Shaun.
The curved roof is going to be your biggest problem.
I would suggest some longitude supports first.
If you are using plasticar then use two or three layers of something like 10thou.
fix the fist layer (Plain plasticard) starting on one side and gluing as you go.
then laminate a second layer of plasticard to that using what ever finish you need, Corrugated iron I presume?

This method works for me having done a couple of buildings with curved roofs.
This little parcels shed was my first attempt at a curved roof.



And it shows!

Cheers!
