Petley depot build

I decided to build this sketch set as it was very unique. Here is the original thread:  https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=31082.0

The following are progressive build photos:

Parts template glued to styrene ready to cut out.


Building staircase (from RSLaserkits)


Airbrushed walls


Adding acetate to windows and doors


Walls up including 2nd floor


Top floor added and inverted building


Gluing turret walls to bottom of top floor


Gluing turret bottoms to turret walls


Gluing on gable tops and turret roof supports


I departed from my directions in original thread and taped turret roof sections together. This made it easier to assemble roofs to structure.


Printed shingles glued to roof sections


Completed roofs, added trim, added staircase.









I made a big mistake on this one. I attached the acetate to the outside of the windows instead of the inside.
I may eventually remove them and do them over.

I removed all the windows which was easy due to fact that they were all press fit with no glue. This was made possible because of the precision made openings with the Micromark corner punch. I have used the Testors "Clear parts cement and window maker" to glue windows to painted structures, but I've never tried the window maker feature. These windows were very small so I decided to try it. I'm happy to report that it worked as advertised, and with a little practice they came out great. I first tried spreading the glue with a toothpick but switching to a small paintbrush handle worked better (I think its because the handle is smoother and slicker).

That's a little beauty, Gary.
