I like the hinged doors on the engine shed and neat work on the conveyor too.
There's a recognisable style to your work, the essence of which I've not managed to put my finger on, but one day I will
Thanks. Matches are an under rated building material! Their size makes them ideal for 009. I have used a fair few on the layout so far The last batch are not so good though , took ages to sort out ones good enough for the doors. Most were only good enough for stirring my tins of Humbrol!

As Southernboy said, there is a definate style to your work, and it's not made from all sorts of different materials making the buildings look mixed and matched. I like it, alot.
Doors on the Loco shed look great, with all the cross bracing and all.
May I ask, what sort of glue did you use to glue the matchsticks onto the wire?
Keep up the good work.
Thanks - I'm pleased with the doors. 4 more to make now for the other shed! I used 3 different glues on the doors! Quick drying wood glue to stick the matches together (Very good stuff!), Unibond Power glue (Allows a fair bit of adjustment before it dries) to glue the Plastruct bracing to the matches and Loctite super glue (Needed to be strong) to glue the wire to the matches.
