That's a very smart looking office Sol.

Looking at the carcase for the steps, it looks as if you're using "grey card" rather than a Bristol Board type product.  I use the same but find it does blunt knives quite quickly compared to harder cards.

If I can get anything approaching your standard it will make me happy.

They look neat Sol.  Whenever I do that (which isn't often :oops:), I get sloping roofs ...........I have no idea why ...:cheers

Here it is in its almost final stage - external platform to be done next.

Hello Ron,
That is great modelling, mate. It's so good that Mr. Wiffen, he of Brisbane & Environs, might be able to organise a Visitors Visa to Queensland :thumbs now isn't that a treat, :Happy and a "Get out of Jail Free" card so you can temporarily leave S. Australia.:Red Card:lol: Everything comes to those producing GGGrrrreeaaaT Models,

                                                                                     Kind Regards,

                                                                                Michael Thornberry.

It's a great loooking model Sol :thumbs

One of the things that impresses me about these Scalescenes kits it's that they are incredibly strong.  All those layers of glued up card make for a sturdy and surprisingly heavy building.  Metcalfe used to be like that but the last 2 kits of theirs I've built seem to have used thinner card and done away with many of the strengthening unseen parts.  I suppose that's to keep prices as low as possible but, IMHO, to their detriment.  With Scalescenes, you supply the card so it doesn't matter to J.W.

Are you going to add the handrails on the steps ?  As it is, it looks a bit "stoney" in that area - the handrails would separate the steps "block" from the rest of the building.

Yes , handrails will happen at the same time I build a platform & crane for the other end.
My mate who build balsa items, is going to build me a station building using Random Ashlar stone & tiled roof to match.

As others have said Sol, very nice build indeed. Can I make one small point of constructive criticism though.

Unless it is a trick of the light then it appears to me from the last photo, particularly evident in the bottom three rows of slates that they haven't been laid in the order they come on the sheet. Mr Wiffen produces the sheet so that they give a natural weathered effect providing you keep the same order when laying them. There appears to be a distinct change in colour on those bottom three rows.

I really do like your guttering solution. There were many large buildings constructed with timber box gutters often lead lined in the early 20th century. In keeping and much easier to model :thumbs

Nick, it must be the trick of light as those 3 rows under the windows are the correct way up as there are tiles on the top.
I would understand it with the buttresses as it is easy to get them the wrong way up but I think I must have been lucky.

I fully agree, Petermac. Sol has made a lovely job of building this kit and it would look good on anyone's layout.

Your comment about Scalescenes kits being strong and surprisingly heavy made me smile. My Scalescenes-modified loco shed has to be lifted to be believed. :mutleyIt's a two-handed job! :shock:

Excellent Sol

I know from experience how tricky it is to get the handrails looking just right. Good job:thumbs

I can always say, they had been damaged before & a temporary repair job done.
