Looking at old photos of Cilgerran (Kilgerran) station, It was pointed out to me that there was a lineside hut at the far end of the goods loop.

No close up picture is available, so I've gone for a generic build. (in 3mm scale :cry:)

I drew a rough sketch to get an idea of sizes:



Next I loaded Photoshop with the grid set to 1cm, with 1mm subdivisions.
Using the line tool set to 3 pixels I drew out the flat plan of the hut.

I imported some of the slate wall sheet that I've been using for other Kilgerran buildings, and superimposed sections of the plan on top. Screenshot below explains it better:



I then printed it out onto 80gsm paper, sticking the basic walls onto 2mm card.
Construction is explained below:



Here are a couple of pictures of the finished hut, prior to weathering and placing on the layout.

Any queries, don't hesitate to ask... I might be able to answer them!

Shaun.

Loved the line drawings.  Art School, Shaun?

The hut's pretty good, too.  :oops:

Thanks everybody!

Max - no art school, just something I enjoy doing.

Peter - yes, I built that one last week. There was something there on the old track plan, so we figured it was a hut, but no photo evidence. It's stuck down now, so I'll leave it!

Shaun.

It looks like you have changed the roof from the slates to tin?

I hadn't noticed that Andy!
It's the spot-light reflecting off the protective varnish. (Which is supposed to be matt...)
