A NEW STATION BUILDING part 4

After a couple of weeks a bit more progress has been made with attention to the roof which was built as described when constructing the Station Masters House.This time an awning had to be taken into consideration. I think it worked out ok so far. The awning will be adjusted to fit and then glued in place with barge boards and trim attached after. In a few areas the  paintwork will need to be looked at but I will take care of that later.

While this project has been taking place I have redone the goods shed area so it ties in with a photo of this location which was discovered recently, more on that later. Sometimes information comes to light years after the model has been completed oh well that’s half the fun I keep telling myself. All  for now and it’s off to the Epping Model Railway Club Exhibition at Thornleigh this long weekend.

    Looking great, Peter. Is the waiting room seat by Anton’s or similar?

  2. Geoff says:

    Really looking good Peter, as always. You have a great eye for colour, and a well organised order in which you progress through a project. Thanks for sharing, and as always, inspiring work.

  3. Ben says:

    My previous reply seems to have become lost. As always, great work and attention to detail, Peter. I often don’t like the separately applied corrugated iron panels but you do it neater than most. Is the interior seat from Antons or Uneek or similar?

    • BURROWA says:

      Ben. The bench seat is scratch built.I will explain how it is made in a future post

      • Ben says:

        Good stuff.
        Although there were references to earlier models and Branchline Modeller and JM’s articles, is the main body still Humbrol 71 or is it a custom mix using it?

      • BURROWA says:

        Hi Ben It’s a custom mix so use Humbrol 71 as a base colour and add Humbrol 62 to tint not much 62 is needed and when you are happy with the colour stop adding number 62 it is not an exact science as buildings weathered.Don’t be afraid to experiment.

      • Ben says:

        Thanks Peter, I thought that may be the case but there’s some very dark caramel looking models out there too that use the same mix so wasn’t sure. Original or not, I prefer the lighter cream version you have there. I used a similar mix on a J2 cottage recently and was quite happy with the result. But a few weeks later and become used to it I think it’s still far too light and will try a stronger mix for further coat!

    Hi Peter.

    Excellent work as always, and very inspiring. It is always enjoyable seeing your modelling on show. Can I ask if you have a plan for the station building at all?

    Regards,
    Brendan C

    Looks great, Peter. I’m enjoying the series on the A4 station building.
