I already had a couple of the superb Scalescenes terraced houses kits and wanted another set to fill space created when i extended the radius of the curve and built new platforms. Rather than using the standard kit i wanted something with a bit more texture and detail. i decided to use the Scalescenes kit as the main structure but face it with Slaters styrene sheet. I used the 4mm dressed stone sheet. I upgraded the roof using York Modelmaking tiles, styrene rod for guttering/downpipes, tin foil for lead flashing and York front doors. Painted the sheet with vrey primer first, then picked out random stones with a variety of greys, greens etc then brushed over AK rubble weathering powder to tone it down. Added last touches include washing line, clothes/sheets from Rizzla/tissue paper, dustbins and other bits and bobs. Even added clothes pegs to the sheets!

Was it easier to get sharp corners? They look great.

The houses look great. I still have to do my first Scalescenes building, the fire station. So far I have noticed it is on 16 A4 pages!

They really do look good. As Marty says the corners stand out for their sharpness. Did you mitre them to get them that good?

Thank you for the kind comments. I used York modelmaking Quoins for the main corners on the house which makes things easier. For the other corners i did mitre the edges to help get the corners a bit sharper. I took a bit of working out to grt the overlaps for each joint right and the windows and doors fitted differently as well. Took me around 4 weeks to build.

Hi Ian,
The time and effort you invested was worth it - you have made a good terrace into a great one .

Cheers all. Hopefully i will be able to get it set in place and finish the area around it to blend it in with the surroundings  over the next week or so. Next is to come up with something to fill in the small gap between the terraced housing and the station masters house just to the right.

Those look excellent Ian - interesting to read how you turned slaters dressed stone into something extremely realistic - I'm sure writing it down took far less time than working out how to do it and then doing it.

As I said, an excellent result - so good in fact, it's my choice for POTM this time around !!!  :thumbs

Wow. Ty Peter!! The colours didnt look right until i put a good layer of AK Rubble weathering powder and rubbed it in. Seemed to have really toned the greys down and give it a more stone type effect.

Well whatever you did Ian, it worked - and worked very well !!


I'm trying to replicate the smoke blackened retaining walls of the industrial north but using Slaters 7mm dressed stone.  If it turns out half as well as your terrace, I'll be delighted. ;-)

I am sure it will turn out great. I saw Tetley Mills had that blackened stone effect and i was amazed at how realistic it was
