Hello again Doug.  Just a thought, but as you are primarily working with Scalescenes' products, might it be worth contacting John at Scalescenes to get his views as to a publication?  He might be interested in promoting a book which advocates the use of items from the Scalescenes' range.

Regards,

Terry

Slowly getting there....



Quite enjoyed a bit of chippying, didn't have to get cold or wet!

Poop-poop

Well, slow progress is still progress! Posed up, whilst I wonder how to further the valencing, rain down pipes etc.

Fabulous. It’s those crisp sharp edges that get me every time, there is no indication that this is a card and paper building.

Thank you, Marty, though I'm getting a lot slower, making plenty of coc%-ups. The waiting list for cataract ops was twelve months before the covid trouble, we hope to run stafft traininga trainsttrains SDR in September to keep safety critical roles like signalling viable as far as the ORR is concerned. It will include eyesight tests and I don't think I can pass now.
Whether I will bother to take it up again, I don't know.

Still, dry roof overhead, full larder and a warm bed, so life ain't so bad!

Doug

Just about finished, a bit of tidying up of rough edges etc., to do. Posed up to try the backscene effect, a bit rough here and there but looks reasonable from about 12". In truth, I made so many little coc%-ups building it I have become fed-up with it!

Built quickly and cheaply on the footprint of the original brick shed following a fire in which 'Smiff the Whiff's' predecessor was implicated, he having fallen out with the Station Master over the matter known as 'Gustave and the exploding seagull'.




Saw a Pyrene extingiusher  recently, so had to include one of those...






My latest pride and joy, a B.R. era Auto coach. I missed the latest iteration [Dapol?] of the 14XX so I'm looking for one with early BR crest.




Crane close-up. Still not happy with the cable catenery, but that's a long term tweak.



Hope it pressed a few buttons [where do I pick up these expressions?]

Douglas

Very im-pressed here Douglas and satisfying to see such beautifully modelled details as the securing of the crane hook and those period extinguishers, not forgetting that little canopy over the office door.

Thank you very much.

Best,

Bill

Thank you, Bill.

The crane hook is a piece of brass wire, annealed, flattened and tweaked, the ponder ball is a glass dress making bead with minute off-cuts of the tube from a WD40 spray as swivel bearings. The wire rope is one strand of a length of brass picture hanging wire straightened out. The crane is made from the innards of a kitchen timer, bits of clock, press studs and two coffee stirrers.

The extinguisher is a tapered piece of BBQ skewer twiddled in a drill, pierced with a N0. 78/0.016 drill for the handle, and a liitle piece of brass nail for the 'STRIKE KNOB ON GROUND AND SHAKE bit at the bottom.

That's an extremely impressive looking shed Doug and a great backscene to set it off against - from a Gaugemaster photo backscene ?

I love the way you use oddments from here, there and everywhere to make these wonderful models - there was me thinking you'd given some RLW tokens to Mr Wills or Mr Ratio in exchange for the crane......................

Thank you, Peter, 'No RLW or SLW tokens were harmed in the making of this shed'!

The backscene is from

info@art-printers.com

the home of ID backscenes which are commonly available at all sorts of outlets, presumably at a mark-up. I needed a tall series, printed at 12" high so contacted them directly. The order was put in the post, virtually by return accompanied by an invoice. Old fashion business, eh?

Douglas

I am suspect the RLW went on that splendid Hawksworth Autocoach but I am guessing for a lot less than the recommended retail! There were some great deals recently.

Doug you should probably look out for a used Hornby 14xx....with a bit of research not too many RLW required.

The Goods shed and associated detail are ,as one would expect, quite brilliant. Coarse modellers like I can only look on in envy. We definitely need a couple of Max’s elephant stamps

Best wishes

John

No, thank you Doug and I must apologise, as I suppose I should have known it would have been scratch built, but I was focused on the clever, but practical securing of the hook with the chain around its base, as I'd never seen that modelled before and it struck me that of course there would have been such an arrangement. This has just now prompted my memory of such an arrangement on a seldom used hand cranked dockside crane in Newport, IOW in the early 70s.

Clever modelling and well worthy of a picture of the month.

Bill
