I am adding signs to my trackbed to give the layout some atmosphere.
The point lanterns are lost wax kits from Weinert.
Other signs are downloaded examples.

This is the station building for my layout.
It is based on two Pola kits with scratch building for the entrance and the roof.
Pola used 1/87 HO scale to the correct proportions

To give you some idea of the size of the building.it is standing on a workmate.


All the best,
David

That's impressive. It reminds me of The Bank of England


As for size, I have a cutting mat similar to yours and the small squares are 1cm. I guess yours is the same?

If you start with a quality product
it certainly helps you towards a good result.
Found my drawing! it measures at its base 46x11.8 cms.

The industrial part of the layout is coming along quite nicely


This factory is mostly scratch built from plywood and detailed using Slaters plastic card.
The brick building is a modified Faller factory kit used as the Amin block.
So far twenty hours work to get to this stage
and about the same to finish it.
The techniques used to produce buildings were found on www.Forsten-online.de which is available in English.
When you consider the factory is 1500mm long and 300mm high.Cost approx £40 to build
Thats some saving
compared to using kits.

Many thanks John,

I had small station to fiddle yard layouts for many years,
Which were enjoyable

But once the little darlings leave and go into the big wide world,
expansion can begin in earnest or retirement brings even bigger spaces
.
Just remember great things come from small beginnings


All the best,

David
