THIS IS CHRIS HEATH TAKING OVER JAK'S BLOG FOR THE DAY
Here it is then (after a lot of ribbing from Jak) my nearly finnished Country Fire Station for my model train set I have in the loft.
As you can see it is a very busy drill session, or it will be once I get all the figures glued into position.
The scale of the scene (if anyone is interested) is 1/76th, and stands a grand 6 1/2'' high.
Oh by the way, I will not be starting my own blog!!
The paving stone surround is formed from individual paving stones, not appreciated by jak when I had to use her eyebrow tweezers to lay them in place. Where the wall meets the paving I added grass as if it was growing in the damp of the wall. A couple of bushes were added to the entrance of the station and a red telephone box on the outside of the wall.
Front view of the station, you can just about see the airbrushing around the wall buttress's.
All of the perimiter walls were made seperate out of a sheet of acrylic, then wrapped in brickwork that I downloaded onto a A4 label sheet and stuck it to the acrylic.
The fireman is adjusting the wheeled escape (big ladder) from the AEC Regent Mark3 engine.
You can see the grass around the base of the wall I built.
Now to show you all my crafting space, it is now a HIS & HERS zone, this was took while I was in the process of making a Railway Siding Shed.
I found a nifty little site called ScaleScenes it has some free downloads so that you can make your own models.
Work in progress, I have all the tools, glue, cocktail stick, knife, steel ruler, cutting mat, I just know you will be green with envy at my craft tools.
