:Happy Good start Ron, I see you have a sweet tooth, toffee for breakfast?

A question when you purchase one of these kits do you download a programme and then print it out, or pay and print from the site? just thinking of the speed of my printer on high detail colour! and if the link breaks down.

Good luck with the build.

Derek

Perry, the thick card is like a ply almost/about 1.7mm. Bonding breakfast card is hard due to extremely glossy sides but Tarzan's Grip works well.

Derek, when you purchase a kit on line, you get advised via e-mail of a link that allows you to download the kit in a zip file which when un-zipped are usually 2 PDF's - one for Intructions & one for the actual kit.
Adobe Reader allows you then to print pages as required.

Derek, remember that some kits need a transparency to print windows - usually the last page & this has been discussed

I like those arched windows and doors Sol and, as DD said, you wouldn't know it wasn't 3D. :thumbs

Regarding sticking the cereal packets - I found a quick rub over with sandpaper roughed up the glossy surface enough for the glue to bite then stuck it with some cheap UHU I bought in UK from one of those £ shops. It has labels in Russian !!!

Thanks John, I wanted something different than brick ( & I too have the big warehouse to build).
A platform using the Ashlar brick will accompany the shed.

Really well done Ron :thumbs

It has convinced me to use the Ashlar for my buildings.
The 3D above the windows, did you mount it on an extra backing first?

Thanks Sol

I have a Metcalfe Goods Shed kit to build (eventually) and I am thinking of covering that with Ashlar (following Petermacs tip on roughing the surface) so that is a good tip. Even in N a bit of relief like that can make a huge difference.

:thumbsThanks for the link on transparent sheets for printing Ron. I like your wall material :thumbs and your 3D work, Loads of the old goods sheds and yard/station buildings in Ireland have a similar finish.

Regards,

Derek

I thinned down  the kit window sills from 3 to 2mm as the 3mm looked too big.

More smart work from the wizard of Oz.

Window sills:
Although I often make them exactly as Ron has shown (although in plastic), it sometimes is worth the extra effort to provide an overlap at each side as that is more prototypical.
(Not a criticism, just an observation).

Depends on the architect and working in stone things were done differently to brick

IKB designed Stroud Goods Shed for instance
Stroud Goods Shed

Shouldn't have opened my big mouth, now you'll pick me up if I don't do the same when I build mine.
