I spent the day affixing the signboards as well as downloading some period adverts (dont require a backboard as would have been enamel affixed directly to the building structure) The adverts were printed to card and affixed directly to the walls. Some of the adverts were tweaked using GIMP software to remove camera flash and rust spots. Pictures show awning temporarily in place (ignore the wayword looking downpipes for now) as I dont intend fixing that in place until I am all complete as I am bound to forget something that will require access!!!)

(You can get the GIMP here :

http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

I have used not only GIMP for my build of this but previously for my GMAX Virtual Modelling for Trainz)

Current to do list is as follows :

1. Install fabricated gutters,downpipes & awning
2. Touch -up roof slates/exposed card edges/chimneys
3. Complete scribing the stonework all round
4. Look at the tall windows again - may redo these as I thing I can now do a better job of these!
5. One more poster signboard at the rear entrance - an LMS/HR Railway notice type at the front door (still havent found a good one yet - either a late HR or an early LMS Railway at HR takeover (ie early 20s) is required - the ones I have found so far are from HR 1902 or LMS (during WWII)
6. Thats enough to be going on with!

Thankfully finished work for the week so back to the station and onto the clock. Downloaded some pix from the net and printed to card. The backing is a preformed round knock out from a spray can cover (just some trimming to complete) I found it easier to use sharp scissors to cut the clock out rather than the round edge scalpel.

Painted the edges matt black.

Will glue it on the wall tomorrow.

Very neat, I like the concept of collecting images from the net and printing to card.
Not looking forward to doing a clock in N gauge... look how small yours is in 00 :o :shock: :(

Nicely done Darren, but I just don't see how you are going to put a "nail" in the wall to hang it up with. :shock: :shock: :shock: :roll: :lol:

The clock has been installed with "invisible" nails. I have also started replacement of the tall windows with a new template that fits better plus took the opportunity of fettling the bottom sill on each. The pic below shows the new unit installed on the far left - it doesnt look much different in the photo but to the naked eye there is a perceptable difference (the old units were too short and showed too much white card)

Completed the renovation of the tall windows today and then started making the brackets for the gutter downpipes - i spotted some plastic coffee stirrers which have a diameter slightly bigger than the downpipe and cut that into small rings for the bracket. I initially glued these to timber pieces from wooden coffee stirrers but this wasnt strong enough. I used styrene instead as the backing piece and superglued these to the plastic coffee stirrer rings (see attached diagram as they are too small to photograph well) I wanted to make sure that the downpipe could be released from the bracket as I want to keep the roof removable for now. I have done this by cutting the ring but this is not visible.

More excellent work, this really is a super project. I like the way you have produced worn and weathered doors. Could you explain how you achieved that effect, or if you have already done so where it is in the thread. It is something I have been trying to do for years, but have never got it quite right. Yours look great.

What a fantastic thread this is, i which to place my order for one. How much would you charge :D :D .
Seriously this is fascinating and i see you have a thing with coffe stirrers, you got a deal with them or something :D :D
I have to keep reading most of the thread to remember how you achieved a certain thing when i look at your pics.

Thanks Phill, I really do wish I could do it full time but the day job pays much better!. Re coffee stirrers, at 75p equivalent for a box of 100 it makes for cheap modelling supplies. Even my wife keeps cardboard shapes, plastic from the household waste for me now in case i can find a modelling need for them!

This morning I touched up the downpipe brackets ready for installation. I then went on to blacken up the internal of the chimney pots with acrylic paint and deliberately blackened the tops and sides a little and wiped away with kitchen paper. The rest of the blackening of the chimney pots will be done with chalks. See pic below of the "bib" just to avoid any last minute disasters with spills of paint on the roof...

This evening I started installation of the drainpipes and gutters. See pic below.

See also below items marked in red where further work is required to blend in the pints to the end walls to remove the exposed ends. All scribing of the stonework is complete.

Current to do list :

1. Signboards (one final next to rear door)
2. Install gutters & downpipes (ongoing)
3. Touch -up roof slates/flashings/chimneys

Completed the downpipes & gutters today as well as the additional signboard that I will leave blank for now till the right poster comes along.

I also painted the eaves and exposed edges which show when roof is installed. Lots of fettling left to do but as its the end of the weekend that will have to wait another week now.

PS my picture that I bought from ebay arrived yesterday...the (now demolished) two road engine shed which will be one of my future projects - this one is going to be a challenge. I have one pic (the one referenced) and a drawing which shows the overall plan shape only. The next project will be the two signal boxes (they are not the same) but will have to wait till I finish this project first.
