We start today with Brian’s next installment on his scratch built engine shed:
Corner trim painted as well as the walls with the base coat. Roof window openings cut out and the roof is ready for the shingles to put on over the double sided tape.
Once the building is complete with all the doors and windows in position, it will then be wearthered with a black wash plus some other dirt.
Another 2 hours work under the belt. The shingled roof will take about 4 hours as it is laid strip by strip using Campbell shingle roll onto the double sided tape.
A good tip for using Double sided tape is, it makes the process much quicker and cleaner and the big advantage is that stops the roof from warping when painting it. I have learnt the hard way in the past.
Cheers for now until the next installment.
“Here’s some photos of an update on my layout.
Most larger buildings you see are laser cut using acrylic sheets. Wood loads and wire spools on rolling stock are also done on a laser cutter and I sell them for both HO and NScale. All track work and turnouts are hand laid using fastracks. The layout is divided into 96 blocks with over 400 led’s for true signaling. All touchscreen controlled using a proprietary processor that does not require a Windows or Mac based pc. The room is 16’ x 20’ HO scale.
Stunning pics from Lou – I would love to see some more!
