    Default Trackside Transfer Station

    This is the 3rd of 14 current kits that I have begun, the DPM Trackside Transfer Station. This building will sit in the upper right hand corner of the layout.

    One thing that did surprise me was how large the kit was, measuring 8.5" (L) X 4.5" (D):







    This kit is one of the easiest I have ever come across comprising only 8 main parts plus roof and landing - nothing to it at all.
    Cheers Tony

    Default Trackside Transfer Station Update

    Haven't been doing too much on the layout/kits but did manage to get a little more done to the Transfer Station as follows:

    It was longer than first stated:











    The Office was hand painted using Tru Color Brushable Flat Brick Red which then had a 1:10 ratio of Indian Ink/Water brushed over it. The ink/water wash was rubbed off with a paper towel leaving the wash in only certain areas.

    One thing I did notice about the Tru Color Paint, if it was put on lightly from top to bottom or visa versa it would sit on top of the Bricks and not flow down between them where there would be mortar. If this becomes a constant then giving the walls a grey wash, to replicate mortar, before putting on the red brick color might just might allow me to recreate a mortar look. Something to play with perhaps.
    Cheers Tony

    Ender,

    Thank you that color will obviously continue around the entire building. The plan at the moment is to do the "raised" parts a weathered concrete color with the windows being an "off white" and the bay doors, well, I am undecided on them but possibly the off white as well.
    Cheers Tony
