This is the second scratchbuilt structure for Jay Dubyew Nth Yard which is based on one of the Walthers kits. I decided against buying the kit as it was certainly a lot cheaper knocking up the building in styrene, afterall I have all the necessary items. The layout was measured up and a suitable plan drawn up on paper. I actually wanted it longer, but did not have enough windows, so a few compromises where met. The two front walls (upper and lower), a floor and the two end walls were transferred to a sheet of styrene, the sheet cut down to size and then windows and doorways were cut out. The whole lot was glued together, starting with the front wall and the floor. Once this had secured properly, the end walls were then positioned and glued, followed by the lower front wall. Whilst this was drying, the front supports were cut from some styrene rectangular tubing. I like using Lego to hold things together whilst the glue sets as it is simple to make a jig and best of all, it's square ! The whole body of the building (skeleton ?) put together. A little filing was needed to tidy up the corners of the building. South Eastern Finecast embosed styrene was then glued to the frame and then the window and door apetures cut out and filed back. Windows and the solitary door was added, followed by some extra detail trims. The lower section of the loading dock will be left as is. Eventually, it will have the concrete look, same as the pillars. A coat of Humbrol was applied and when half dried, the excess was wiped from the top of the bricks, leaving the paint in the mortar gaps. This pic below has the building in the same state as above, only to be positioned on the layout with a few wagons underneath. The next steps will be dry brushing the brickwork, picking out the window frames and door, then install the roller doors in the loading dock. Cheers, Gary.
