Do you have a prototype picture that you are building to?

Wayne, I collected lots from the internet but to avoid any copyright issues I have shown a link below of a later pic of Tain Station (some colours are different eg columns on the awning). If you look carefully as well you can see Tain Station in my Avatar and Signature Pics.

Thanks Perry, but still some way to go - current to do list is as follows :

1. Plinths at the rear of the building
2. Chimney Pots
3. Signboards
4. Tin advertising signs
5. Install gutters & downpipes
6 . Support columns at the rear of the building
7. Touch -up roof slates
8. Scribed the stonework all round
9 . There is more but thats enough for now....

Completed the plinths and entrance corners stonework at the rear (first pic shows the entrance corners stonework part complete) , installation of roof above the door (see second pic and note this was not on my to do list..) and the fabrication of the central columns (shown temporarily in position in the last pic) this afternoon. As per the prototype the base at the bottom of the entrance columns is of a a greater depth than the awning columns at the opposite platform side. The base was made of two layers of styrene.

Have to shut down now as back to work tommorrow so wont be back to this properly until next Friday evening..

After a very long week at work I am glad to be back to the model !!!

I painted the columns at the rear of the building (shown as sitting temporarily in place below) and started scribing the stonework at the front. In addition i installed the chimney pots using the epoxy putty (in lieu of Milliput) - boy does it set quick!!!

I made up the putty for each chimney stack (its two part is simply kneaded together) one at a time as it went hard so quickly (i could of course have removed some of the hardener from the mix) Pots are part painted for now and will be weathered and blackened. Epoxy will also be tweaked/fettled/weathered.

Tommorrow is for more scribing....

Superb build Darren.

Something I've just noticed on looking at the pics again - the "scuffed" doorway !! Maybe you've laready explained it - if so, my apologies and I'll re-read - if not - how on earth did you achieve that effect ? It looks totally real. Ity's the blue door to the right of the awning I'm talking about. :roll: :roll:

A brilliant achievement Darren you have created a totally unique station which is always going to have a special place on your layout.
And thanks for the regular updates and progress reports which i have been reading since you started
After finishing this im sure no building will seem unmakeble to you.
well done

cheers Brian.W

Thank you everyone for your encouragement - sometimes knowing that I am due for another installment update does keep me at it rather than leaving it for another day.

Today I have been doing a lot of internet surfing in order to get the posters ready.

I prepared the poster boards using word :

1. Create Table with two rows
2. Typed "LMS" in the top row (suitably small font, centred and changed to white text) and then insert black shading
3. Sized it to rough size, printed it out, compared to actual size required and the resized/tweak a little further
4. Insert picture into the second row and size appropriately.
5. Click in resized picture and find the size that is required.
6. Copy and paste the completed poster (the now standard template) as many time as you need for the others to be created however remove the picture to allow clean paste of the other graphics.
7. Go to you directory with your graphics files and make a new directory for resized pictures and copy them in there. Resize each to the required size as per the first poster dimensions.
8. Insert picture into the standard templates you have created
9. Print to card.

I still have to create the frames now...

Petermac, no apologies required, ask away - I am more than happy to discuss.

The door is a high resolution image - scalescenes doors are created that way however there are lots of websites out there that allow you to download these type of images for free. In addition there are lots of doors out there in the world that one day you will pass one and say mmm that would make a good door for my....snap away

I will also attempt at some stage a real flaking paint door (not for this build) as i understand that this can be achieved by using artists masking fluid to provide that effect.

After trying a few different ways of creating the notice boards (styrene versus thick card) I ended up using a methodology of drawing out a thin card template and gluing a wooden frame to it (yes the wooden coffee stirrers come to the rescue again!!) - frame was made from thin slices cut from the coffee stirrers.

First picture shows the production line.

Second picture shows frames cut out and drying before final trim and paint. A completed version is shown sitting against the wall.

Finished painting of the sign boards and installed the posters. Some final fettling and touch-up required but that can be done once they are installed. The posters are a neat fit and not glued in (allowing easy change in the future)
