Have spent the last couple of days trying to finish off the ramp for the coaling stage.
Components are some dressed stone plastikard, some wood section and a sharp knife, a steel rule and some Evostick (I tried PVA but it didn't stick too well)
The wood section is for making pillars and these are simply cut to length. The front face plastikard is cut oversize to allow for the sides.
I glued on the front face first, then each of the sides.
Finally the pieces are trimmed with a sharp knife and then the edges rounded with a file.
With the pillars in place some plastikard sheet is cut to size and glued between the pillars.
Some artists mounting board strips are used for wall capping.
The wall is then temporarily set in place against the ramp and a line scribed on the back to indicate the level of the ramp. Then Plastikard is glued in place following the line, keeping the stone courses level.
One rear wall in place.
One side completed - just the other one to go and then painting !!
This could take a while !!
BTW If anyone has any photos of a LNWR Lamp Hut it would be much appreciated ! I can find LMS and ex-MR ones but not LNWR for some odd reason?
The motive power depot has come on a lot since I last dropped in, very impressive.
Amidst all LNWR detailing do I espy a signal box with GWR fenestration? Didn't you make a LNW Chester style box recently?
