In between going to the bathroom I managed to get some modeling time.

Assembling the walls to the foundation.


Tried the roof for fitting , ready to paint.


The other side of the structure with all doors and windows in place.


While waiting for some painted parts to dry I started on some sub-assemblies like the watertank. An AA penlite was the exact right size , I soaked the wood part in water and then wound it around the pennlite with elastic bands to create the right shape.


Some of the subs I made , porch , watertank frame, billboard frame.


Glued the watertank sides to the frame , quite easy with the shape already there.

Okay then , N-scale is small and fragile so I took my time cutting loose the lettering of the signs. Very delicately cutting away surrounding pieces till the letters were free. Lasercutting at it's finest , they look excellent.








Before painting cornices and trim I had stuck them to transfer tape making installation easy.

Looking great, Jan.

That magnification of the water tank with the rubber bands wound around it really showed just how small n-scale is!

Cheers, Mark.

Painted the letters white.


Just something to hold while I'm painting the roof buildings.


The ladder for the watertank.


The instructions in the kit are I believe for the H0 kit, it says use the styrene strips for the watertank , but there are no styrene strips . In stead I used strands of wire.


Using CA glue and a lot of patience it was easier then I thought it would be.





Added the other details to the watertank.

After some painting and weathering I installed the watertank on the roof.








Also did some chalks on the roof .


Elevator house and walkplanks on the roof.
