Hi, Stu, The books are simply pieces of card wrapped in a cover for the closed ones, and the open one is cigarette papers squeezed together in a small clamp and the 'spine' having been moistened in PVA, and then when dry, opened out and tiny 'writing ' done with a mapping pen, I like your 'grill'...

Aha, thanks for the explanation - I shall try myself later.
The grill is a nylon string bag which held onions, stretched out and held down with bluetac, then painted black. The frame is a Peco window, with the lower sill and middle cross bars removed.

The distinctive station awning valances have been added over the platform, and given a first wash of paint.




In the ticket office there is a radio, a clock, a set of drawers and some more items on the table.


 

On the table there is a blotter pad, some pens, a stationery block (needs more detail) and a copy of the working rules (rather than Playboy...)




Still a long way to go before it's complete.

But its getting there and really looking very good indeed.  :pathead:pathead

Now is anyone going to try this level of detail in 2mm or Z Gauge or if you are a real  out and out masochist then how about   trying it in T Gauge ?.:lol:

I'm struggling with 4mm/ft - I'm not going anywhere near 2mm or T !

As you can see, Charlie the Porter has left his brush on the platform - Station Master Potts will be after his blood. And that First Aid box could do with a new coat of red paint too.

Great stuff.

As for Richard's challenge re. 2mm, I regret I'm a little busy at the moment.

Y'know, I'm tempted to go and get another one, I've got another idea for a group of photographers arguing with the local BTP...

Any chance of a thinner broom handle?

(Goes to make coffee and put computer to sleep).

Seriously, Stu:

Have you thought about putting a thin line of tape or something on the box lid to conceal the partition tops?

Hmmm. The handle is 1.2mm rod, which equates to about 5" in diameter - so I guess it is too big. Right, off to find something a bit thinner...
(thank you...)

The handle on our stiff broom is just 1inch in diameter - I guess that 0.31mm dia brass wire would therefore be the closest. That is might thin stuff, but readily available for signal construction work.

The project looks fantastic, Stu. The combination of your imagination and modelling skill is just terrific. Good luck with the competition.

I have considered painting the partition edges in black - I'll be adding a black paper 'skirt' around the base so it folds under the base in the curve of the box walls - but you think adding something to the lid would be more effective ? It's an option I'd not considered, thanks.

Thanks too Geoff for your comments, I'm enjoying this, but my box file project is going to seem quite big in comparison !

Have you thought about tea making facilities?

It would need a Milk Tray.

I wimped out at doing tea making facilities - I couldn't find anything suitable for mugs, and the teapot had me completely flumuxed, so I made a pack pf cigarettes and a lamp for the desk.

These photos are courtesy of my daughter and her Pentax DLSR :



 

What you can't quite see on this shot is the new 'Way Out' sign, hanging off the awning framework.

I think this is more or less complete now.

This shot shows the hat hanging on the back of the office door.




And a final overall shot of the model.




Thanks to everyone for their comments and suggestions.:thumbs
