Railways & other things

Station start

Through the good offices of our Chairman Wim I have purchased an etch of Bodiam station building which will be for Wimblehurst Road.

Construction has started as Wim wanted me to do the test build to see how practical producing an etched building in 3mm scale is.

Looking forward to the challenge and will provide updates as I go along.

The first stage is to mount the window frames on the outside and doors. I am treating my approach to the kit as if it were made of card construction and adding things whilst in the flat so to speak.

I have used superglue for the frames and doors. I could of soldered but knowing my luck it would have gone everywhere other than where needed and ruin the fine corrugated detail.


This is the roadside elevation hence the R. & the rest of the etch

 I realised that I had not shown the finished article so here it is.
