Just Wills 'Cobblestone' sheeting Aidan. If I did it again I think I would use 'Daz'.

Lets keep the photo size down Brian!!

Ff I'm totally honest, I honestly couldn't work out whether that last pic was real or not.

Absolutely amazing :D

Jeez, just found this thread! Some of those pics look like they are in O gauge! Love the unique buildings and how you weathered them!

The warehouse is Townstreet. They are quite expensive I think this kit with an extra bay cost around £70. But they are an absolute delight to paint.....if you can use a paintbrush.

Looks a terrific addition to any layout I'll bet. Really nice paint job too. Love the random 'wrong' coloured bricks :wink:

Cheers

Cheers, O gauge, now that's a thought. :wink:

Work in progress today.

The terminus station end has been a bit of a problem. Things just seem to be getting more and more simple. So the station building and some others have got an appointment with the 'Wheelie Bin' Oh well it's all experience.

Have to say Brian, your buildings don't half look like the 'knocked up by idiots with leftover crap' creations that you see in builder's yards and seedy industrial estates everywhere.

The ones down the side of the stream could easily be a photo of the cruddy bit at the back end of Sandycroft Industrial Estate near Chester.

That's meant as a compliment, btw. Just in case you couldn't tell! :lol:
What's that switch do? Oh! Is it supposed to smoke like that?

Yes I know what you mean. Mind you I know what a guitar is...I know what a valve amp is. But bu...r if I know what a valve guitar amp is. :wink:

For anyone who might be thinking about a warehouse for their layout this is the Townstreet being built. This a half relief one the components are all interchangeable which means you could do it in the round....might be cheaper to buy the real thing though.

Nice work Brian, and those Townstreet buildings are something else!
When the time comes for admin buildings on my shedscene layout, I'll be checking out their catalogue.

Cheers

Steve they are well worth the money. The only one that disappointed was the 'Railway Arches' I just couldn't get it right. Then I saw Townstreet at an exhibition and their example made mine look......good.

The engine shed is great. From memory it's only about seven pieces, plus the brass etching for the windows.

Whoops, not supposed to look at the S.R. layout in the winter. :wink:

About £40 I seem to remember. Can't be more accurate seem to have mislaid their catalogue.
