My friend wanted a two road engine shed for his new layout and I decided to make use of a previous engine shed I had made redrafting the artwork to create a new model. Once I had established the thickness of the material I was going to use I drafted the model in a graphic program constantly checking measurements to make sure that the parts would fit properly, this was important as I would be using some arched windows that I screen print. When satisfied that I had the design sorted I printed the parts on a professional printer using quality paper which was then glued to 1mm thick grey boxboard. It takes a while for the glue to dry completely and then comes the task of cutting out all the parts.


These are the roof trusses which I tackled first as they took a while to cut. Once all the white areas are removed a part cut along the centre line allowed them to be folded and glued.





The walls are made by layering a number of sections that create depth to the model and provide additional strength, a total of three layers of material was used in the walls.



The photo shown below is the parts for the internal side walls.



The fitting of my screen printed windows.





When everything was cut out and the individual walls constructed it was a simple job to glue them together to create the basic shell and of course a little test of how the trusses look when in place.

Quality work! Lots of ATD (attention to detail)

A bit more work on the engine shed this afternoon. I have made the vent in the roof by layering strips of 1mm card with 1.8mm card which is slightly narrower to create the effect of a slotted vent. Fitting the roof trusses was a bit of a challenge keeping everything in line and square.





The photo below shows the fitting of the cross members between the roof trusses.




Making the extraction fan hoods and fitting them in the roof cavity.







Testing the roof assembly fit on the model.




Fitting the roof panels to the trusses. I think that is enough for today, I will do more tomorrow, I think a cuppa is in order.

I think a large congratulatory glass of S.L.W. would be more appropriate.....

There's some extremely accurate measuring and cutting there - puts me well to shame !!

Clever idea using the layered card to represent the slotted vents - it works very well. :thumbs

I had a car accident which has created a few issues over the last few days, no injuries but what a pain doing a claim damage assessments etc etc. I have managed to finally get the roof completed using my home made corrugated sheet a bit more work to do yet and then I will tackle the weathering both inside and out and then to set up the lighting.

Nice sheeting.  :thumbs

Sorry to hear about your car accident - just as long as you're OK - cars are inanimate and can easily be replaced ..............humans aren't so easily done.  :roll:

Still impressed with your modelling. How do you make the corrugated metal/roof?

A bit of a process to get a system that worked, after a few failures I finally milled a couple of plates that actually worked.

Excellent work.
Very impressed. I like all the finer detail that you are putting in. Are you thinking about installing lighting?

 Thank you for your kind words, in answer to your question I will be weathering the model and will fit lighting inside as well. I purchased the LED's and resistors the other day so I am keen to get it done but I must concentrate on one step at a time.Regards,
Robyn

That is super corrugated sheeting.  I made a former for mine, but yours is beautifully uniform.   
Do you intend to add any interior detail?  It can be  a divisive issue.... frankly most of it is never seen... but then those closeup photos reveal the full detail.  It's a lovely model so far and I hope we will see it in situ

Thank you Michael, the plates took a bit of experimenting before I finally got a set that worked but it was worth the effort. Interior Detail...well I am looking at doing some work in this regard but I think it will be limited so my friend can add to it as well, I am confident that this will look good on his new layout.
