Always a problem, gutters.
Looks like you've solved yours, Ron.

That looks good Sol - much better than a flat plate. :thumbs

I'm pretty sure they will, Ron! :doublethumb

You've made very rapid progress on this project. You can't have that much left to do by way of basic construction. It's certainly looking nice.

Thanks gents - it is stopping for a while as the weather now lets me get out to train room to add point mootors & a new panel. The small office is the next part to be done when I get back to it.

Very nice build Ron! Nice alternative solution for the gutters. Always a tricky thing to represent in card kit form. No doubt an improved solution pop up as I'm designing something completely unrelated, that's usually the way new design elements develop.

The good thing about having downloadable kit rather than a warehouse full of printed products, any improvements or tweaks can simply be folded into the existing design and a new version uploaded (which in turn can be downloaded by previous purchasers).

How do previous purchasers become aware of the update John? If the process is mentioned on your website just refer me there and I'll stop being lazy :thumbs

cheers

Having a break of points re-laying, I continued on with the Office building.
The outside wall with door.

Window & door lintels thickened up with card & another print of that page.
The door was flat in depth so I printed it again, glued to thin card & cut it out very carefully, darkened the edges & glued it over the existing printed door - gives a bit of 3D effect




Window ledge & steps to come - should look OK with the 3ft rule ;-)

Nice attention to detail Ron.

I just want to get out of the office, head home to my workbench and get stuck into my bridges... sigh... working for the railway ;-)

You're right Phill - that extra lintel and door panelling gives it quite a lift Sol but I'm still amazed at how much relief appears to come out on the stonework on these kits. :thumbs

I remember seeing a quayside on here and couldn't believe it was just flat card.

Steps for the office - lots of card pieces & the side of stone




The roof - from a sheet , cut to fitin strips - this took a while




Now fitted - ready to be attached to the side of the main shed.




The chimney pot is from a ball point pen painted red-brown. I will think about a hand rail.

Looking good, Sol.  I'd make the chimney a different colour - maybe darker?

Thanks Max, when it is in-situ, weathering will be the name of the game including dirty chimney pots

Looks great Ron:thumbs......You know what...... this is boring........I write this every time I read your posts

I am impressed at the way you have tackled this project......and each post edges me a little nearer serious card modelling

One small point, I have never been clear who the operating company is on your line! :mutleyThere is some evidence to suggest they have connections with the Great Way Round.......but there is no light and medium stone so what colours constitute the company livery? Just guessing .....how are you going to get those doors to look faded Green and Gold?:mutley Right now they are a sort of faded ash...............:pedal

John Dew wrote: One small point, I have never been clear who the operating company is on your line! :mutleyThere is some evidence to suggest they have connections with the Great Way Round.....Very true John, the Company started on the back of GWR but expanded & became a private concern using any rolling stock readily available. The railway colour scheme is a minor point now but  no doubt in the fullness of time, one will eventuate     but there is no light and medium stone so what colours constitute the company livery? Just guessing .....how are you going to get those doors to look faded Green and Gold?:mutley Right now they are a sort of faded ash...............:pedal

Card/paper  modelling, well I enjoy it but if I get anywhere near the standard of Dooferdog, I will be happy !
