Scalescenes latest kit has arrived - the small engine shed as previously given away with Hornby Magazine, but now available in a choice of texture finishes.  This model looks fantastic.  I especially like the idea of a water tank on one end of the roof.  Every branch line should have one of these.  Get yours while stocks last!

I've just finished this fantastic kit.  Top marks to John Wiffen of Scalescenes.  I chose to make the shed with doors at one end only and with the water tank over the doors.  I produced the windows via the self-adhesive label method and coloured the window frames with watercolour paints.  I darkened the light grey doors using Promarker pens which do not smudge the inkjet print.  This kit went together easily and was very enjoyable to build.  Highly recommended by me!

I must say it does look very smart and a nice addition to a branch line.

Did you hit any snags in the build ?

See "I produced the windows via the self-adhesive label method and coloured the window frames with watercolour paints".

 

Come along, Max, have you had your All-Bran today? Tee-hee! Unless I've got it all wrong, Terry has chosen to print out the 'windows' Scalescenes page onto self-adhesive A4 labels, stuck them to the acrylic sheet and then cut straight across each frame and picked off the 'panes' with tweezers, [what I call 'Les Windows' because he was kind enough to send me some A4 SALs], and he's done it very nicely, too.

Whilst I am the first to admit that a lot of the credit for the finished models is due to the individual constructor, the newer S'scenes models are now capable of being made up into 'museum' quality builds as Terry has amply demonstrated and John Wiffen deserves another round of applause...

Hmm.  I must concentrate.  So many forums, so few hours.  :oops:

Thank you for the praise chaps, but as Doug points out, the designer deserves all the credit.  John has done a wonderful job with this kit.  Re the windows, Doug is correct.  In fact, John describes the sticky label method in the kit instructions.  You can, of course, print the windows directly onto acrylic sheet but that would restrict you to black window frames.  There is also the option of purchasing etched brass window frames from Brassmasters.  I had a slight problem in as much that the self-adhesive labels left some sticky residue on the window panes.  Any idea as to how to remove this without damaging the paper frames?
Peter, no real snags encountered during construction.  One slight problem were gaps at the base of the two vents on the roof which was due to my not being too careful when cutting out and laminating the four pieces (per vent) together. This was easily remedied by glueing thin strips at the base of both vents.  For some reason I had it in my head that the water tank was going to be a problem but it turned out to be very easy to construct.
All in all, a very enjoyable build.

I too have had this problem, and used a cotton bud dampened with de-natured alcohol [meths?] to get rid of the smears, it evapourated very quickly and did not affect the remaining frames although I wasn't too generous with the fluid. I've since discovered that picking up a minute part of the corner of the 'pane' area with a scalpel blade and then taking it off with tweezers in 'peeling back' motion rather than a 'lifting off' makes the least mess.

 

Again, well done, nice model, I'd love to weather it!

 

Doug

Thanks Doug.  If and when the shed is placed on a layout, I'll give it a good weathering.

Really superb build Terry, many thanks for posting the images! I'm slowly shuffling my way towards a Doors and windows pack designed with self adhesive paper in mind.

A superb piece of kit building Terry. You're certainly showing John's work in its best light.

....when you do, John, please will you think of GWR 1920s standards?

I think they are lovely, huge windows, enough light/dark stone to make it interesting and after the mid-twenties, only a few advertisement plates. In my mind, the best looking rural era!

See here 'Modellers' Guide to the Great Western Railway' [The Nostalgia Collection] ISBN1-85794-204-3 for inspiration, there's lots more there!

Thank you John and Trevor.  A doors and windows pack will be very useful.  Doug, that's a superb station building.  Presumably it is featured in the scratchbuilding section of 'Your Model Railway'?

Hi Terry, I'm not sure, I gave it away in 2010 for the YMR exhibition, it may still exist on a module in someones loft somewhere! I've a few pictures of it somewhere! I'll have a look if you are interested, it would be contemparory with the engine shed, too.

Doug,  Don't go to any trouble as I don't actually model the GWR.  I was interested to read how you built it.  But thanks all the same.

Terry
