Have you had a chance to look at photobucket for your pictures yet Darren?

First try using photobucket. The awning has been given its first coat. The colour has ended up close to the weathered lead colour i was looking for. More coats to follow.

PS Its curling up but seems fine once fitted in place.

I have applied a 2nd coat but it will need another coat before I attempt glazing. Unfortunately work will have to stop now as I am going on holiday. Will be back at the end of the Year. Have a nice festive season folks!

Finally finished painting the awning (3 coats) and glazed it out (the testors glue works well but does leave a shiny residue). Have now assembled the square gutter and columns (i would have built the columns from styrene if i was doing this again!) Now back to the roof....

Thanks Bob. Last night today saw the assembly of the roof as one unit as well as installation of the chimney stacks. I have opted to replace the brass chimney pots with styrene items (much easier to work with). I have purchased some plumbers epoxy putty (in lieu of Milliput) and have produced a test sample first to see how it works out before I install the Chimney Pots (see sample at the front of the building). I will paint the chimney pots before I install them. Chimney pots shown here on stacks as test view only.





I have made 4 attempts to resize the pic without success!!

That's very neat work, Darren. :wink:

I'm looking forward to seeing the finished model. :) Don't rush to finish it though. as the old saying goes, 'Make haste slowly'.

There's no problem with the size of the picture Darren, it's just right at 640 width. As I have said before the vertical measurement isn't important it's just the width and you have got that right.
Like the picture too, the little bits make such a difference.

Someday, I intend to build a model that big. :lol: At least there's room to put your fingers on it.
Looking Great Darren!

Keep the pictures coming.

Took an opportunity to complete the roof intersections (at the bottom where the gable roof and main roof intersect. I had allowed plenty wiggle room so the gaps had to be infilled). This is to allow sanding of the roof and then installation of the flashings on the roof intersections (this weekends job) before slating.





Still trying to decide whether to use thin card for the slates or the paper -I have purchased the scalescenes slate for printing to either. I will have to try some test pieces first. The flashings will be simple grey paper and weathered later.

I have also included a close up of the skylights - they were cut from card with a brand new blade and coloured using grey felt tip. Glass was simple acetate printed with a dark grey (a little too dark) I have further included a picture below of where earlier in the build I had installed the skylights at the wrong end of the building (imagine my dismay as I was sitting looking at them after completion (cup of coffee in hand and congratulating myself on a fine job done) when I realised that i was looking at the wrong end of the building!!!!! (reiterates the need for marking the building components!!))

The "Wick" end (wall faces to the Wick Terminus direction)





The "Inverness" End (wall faces Inverness Station direction) - patches in place - all to be sanded and filled before slating...

I've been there and done that Darren. Look at it this way, it keeps us all humble! Besides, it's like a bad shot in golf that ends up good, you can't see the bad shot on the score card! :roll: :roll: :roll:

Enjoying this Darren!

This weekend saw me install the flashings (see 1st & 2nd pix) Thereafter I printed out the scalescenes slates to card. Installed the first element of the roof (see 3rd & 4th pix) so far. Slates are installed one row at a time.

This is a very thorough job that's starting to look superb, Darren :!:
It's sort of crept up on me, but now I'm really hooked and looking foward to the next installment :!:

I'm liking what I see Darren! Is the flashing made from card stock also? I see two types of glue in your picture, are you using the glue stick for the Slates?
