At least you won't have to spend too much time ballasting, even I could complete that in an evening, (well may be two):mutley

Inspiring stuff Stu.I really like what you do...not just in this old choccy box,but the micro layouts too!
  BTW....at the YMR show you said you were thinking of doing something involving Shepherds on the Chacewater/Newquay line.Are you still interested,because If so,i've got loads of reference photos.??

Cheers,John.B.:thumbs



Thanks John.

Yes, I am still planning, at some stage in the future, a model of Shepherds. However, it won't be this year, I've got enough projects on the go which I really ought to finish first. Plus, I'm not confident enough yet to do all the necessary greenery, so I'll probably need at least a couple of smaller layouts/modules first to get some practice.

Outstanding (started) projects include : a photo diorama using Doofer's flat factory backscene; a photo diorama of a small clay works warehouse (for the forthcoming BWT); a three box boxfile layout; Polbraze, my latest harbour layout; new motive power for Wheal Tiny; an O gauge boxfile Goods Shed; an O/On30 gauge boxfile working stone hopper.

Planned projects : a Module for the 2012 RMweb SWAG Member's Day at Taunton (Oh, and I'm also co-ordinating the module layout too); a four section Module The Four Seasons, showing the same view in four different times of the year; an entry in the RMweb 2011 challenge

So Shepherds will have to wait for a bit, but yes, I'll be taking you up on your generous offer when the time comes.

Cheers

Stu

Some inspired micro modelling there, Stu. Will there be a scale box of Ferrero Chocs lying around in the Ticket Office somewhere? :lol:

Pete: that connection hadn't occured to me, I'll not be able to look at it without thinking about it's size now...

Geoff: I've not decided on the era, although the luggage sort of puts it pre 1950s - not sure when FR chocs came out. I do intend to add ash trays with cigarettes, plus papers and ledgers on the desks. I also need an old style telephone.

Edit: FR came out in 1982.

Shame!! I saw the blue diesel and thought you were modelling a later era. Are you planning on cutting off the front of a diesel cab to complete the picture????:mutley

I guess as blue diesels were around in the 80s, it would be a nice touch to add a box of choccies.
So I need a 1980s phone - maybe a trim-phone ?

No, I won't be adding a cab, as the scene is designed to be viewed from three sides, from looking down the platfrom into the booking hall right around to 180 deg the other way, looking from the booking hall onto the platform.

Oh, definitely discarded fag packets around, maybe with a layout plan on the back ?
Also some tea mugs, magazines and newspapers, as well as the necessary paperwork needed in a ticket office.
What else would I need in there ?

Thanks for all the suggestions gents, they've certainly got me thinking how I can do some of them.

In the meantime, I've added a grill & surround to the ticket hatch, a bench around the corner of the walls, a ticket cupboard and free standing table, and a pipe for the radiator.




Outside on the platform, a support pole and the booking hall doors have appeared.
