At long last I've got round to doing some modelling again and decided to do a small, quick build of the Coal Office that MM has been sadly lacking.

I knocked this up yesterday using my usual method of greyboard and Scalescene's sheets. The master of card and paper, ol' Dooferdawg is a great inspiration and when he gets round to sending me his watercolour weathering method, I'll have a go at making this hut the grubby little shack it should be.

Apologies for not photographing it as I went along but I got carried away and finished it before I even thought about taking pictures. So here it is.





Simple isn't it? I then asked myself where would they keep the empty sacks :hmm under cover yes but surely not in the office. So some sort of outdoor, under cover storage was needed. A few sketches later and I came up with a plan and set to work.

This got really fiddly. I first took a wooden stirrer liberated from Costabucks and cut one into 1.5mm wide strips (yes I measured them) the short pieces you can see are bigger in the photo than real life and are only 8mm long.




Painted and assembled it looks like this.



The corrugations of the tin roof are too wide a pitch and looks bad on the photo, but is not actually that noticeable and looks better for having some corrugation than none at all. It stands along the side wall of the office.


 


When placed on the layout it looks like this. It need to be bedded in of course and it needs some empty coal sacks on the store shelf.

Talking about empty sacks, has anyone got a method for representing a stack / pile of them?










PS - There is a virtual pint for the first one to spot the accidental constructional error :thud

What's next? Onto an interpretation of Diaperdogs Whorehouse :mutley:mutley:mutley :cheers

Nice!

Sacks, I made some out of Milliput, Roll out and cut into short lengths then shaped with fingers. When dried hard paint with matt black emulsion or what ever matt black you use.
Simples!

I think he wants empty ones, stored flat on his shelves and for that I suggest elastoplast tape [the pinky fabric stuff for holding bandages on] cut into little pieces, stacked up and painted browny-black....tad-aaaah!

:hmm I was actually thinking of folded empty sacks but it might still work if I use flat strips of milliput, thanks.:thumbs

Spot on Doug, but has got me thinking that some black duct tape might also do the job with a bit of weathering.

This might help

http://yourmodelrailway.net/view_topic.php?id=3293&forum_id=51&highlight=watercolour


Also, indent a few bricks with a small screwdriver tip, chip one or two brick corners off [sharp scalpel] actually cut out the texture paper of one or two bricks and paint in the holes with a gungy colour [technical phrase] , pin head for door handle with lots of dirty hand marks around the handle level, & lines of sheet nails on the roof with rust streaks should help good into better, :thumbs


PS - There is a virtual pint for the first one to spot the accidental constructional error

Tee-hee!


HOORAY! A card model is born....poop-poop:thumbs

After Brian, Max, Doofer pointing out other omissions I would recommend anyone putting their work in front of the YMR quality control committee. :lol:

:hmm Probably best not to rush the build in a peak of enthusiasm in future.

:It's a no no The original mistake though is still there and unidentified :chicken

The rail that carries the boards should be on top, not underneath?
