The Ambulance & Mutual Improvement Shed

Postby barrowroad » Fri Apr 03, 2020 4:29 pm

Following completion of the Foreman's Hut my next building for Barrow Road is the Ambulance & Mutual Improvement Shed which was situated in the shed yard adjacent to the viaduct carrying Barrow Road itself.

With time during the current situation spent between house decoration and modelling this model has taken about a week to produce.
Construction uses two layers of plasticard - a 30thou base structure laminated with a 40thou layer of 2mm [ 6in] Evergreen V Groove sheet.
I produced a 4mm scale drawing the dimensions obtained by scaling from photograhs I have in my collection.
The following photos show stages of the build.

The tiles are 3M strips I have spare from the roundhouse and come from York Modelmaking.

Question. What have you used to reproduce the slate roof?

Very neat hut construction. I'm also using York tile strips. Are you painting/colouring/weathering them? If so how?

Jon, I do paint the tiles. I use Badger Air-Opaque air brush colours which I've had for some while. Not sure if they are still available. I use a palette of black and neutral grey with a bit of talc powder and a final wash of matt black acrylic using car windscreen was as a thinner.

I've been a bit busy on DIY this past week decorating the bathroom - my regime has been decorating in the morning modelling in the afternoon.
Remembering I promised some photos of the Shed in situ here are a few.
Keep safe,
Robin
