Well, I'm back from your time zone.  So as I recover from jet-lag (easier going west than east), I'll be watching!  It's interesting to see the problems and solutions in a different scale, sometimes they're different than what I'd do in HO.

Looking good, Jan.

For my New Zealand station (it would seem the colour schemes are very similar) I used a product called 'Buff titanium (024) by Daler & Rowney, Graduate acrylic.  It seems to be a pretty good match for your colour - certainly the closest I could find to the NZ prototype colours.  Attached is a link to my Tellynott and Shadowlands thread.  The station build is on page 22.

Cheers, Mark.

Thanks Mark , I used the Floquil on my Manhattan  and Clay Centre Rock Island stations , I also found out that I have a smaller depot already built somewhere , so maybe I will change this one to Santa Fe colors.http://janbouli.com/?p=mandep.html

All the windows and doors done and glazed with Glue 'n Glaze form Deluxe Materials.




Started putting walls together.






Walls done and a bit of touch up done to the windows , it helps that the primer is 99% the same color as Rock Island Maroon.
