Have any questions or tips and advice on how to build those bits that don't come ready made.

The Boischaut signal box

Postby Boïschaut » Tue Dec 27, 2016 5:13 pm

The North Fangore Signal Box from Wordsworth Model Railway has been slightly modified. Now it's the Boischaut signal box as you can see. I used one empty cereal box and a cheap color printer. I still have a lot of work to do and a few things to learn.
It's my first try...So the question is: keep it or dump it ?

Just the thing to place by your little roundy-roundy.
Mikes print-off models are great, keeping as a reference
against which to judge future projects is the thing to do.
You should be quite pleased with the result.

G'day Boischaut,

Your construction looks faultless. I'm not sure why you'd want to dump it?

We all make a wobbly start somewhere, and you've done an excellent first build.

Besides, I think part of the model railway habit is to hold on to everything, even if it's not on the layout, it's in the "come in handy one day" box/room/shed/storage depot :)

Cheers, V.R.

I'm planning to build a few Wordsworth Model Railway rail side houses. :o

Right now, I'm trying to build it in G scale.
