Kit Building / RS Laser 1st Bank in N-scale
« on: May 13, 2020, 05:26:24 PM »
It's still nice and cool in my workshop , so I'll just keep building small structures for one of the towns on my layout.This is RSLaser's 1st Bank .
The contents.
Primed with gray primer from spray can.

Several sprays later so that the paint gets into the mortar lines somewhat, the brick walls are definitely more detailed then those from the Monster kits.

Decided on doing a different technique for the walls , using Faber Castell Albrecht Durer Water Color Pencils , these can also be used on plastic kits.

Several color's later. I hold the pencils almost horizontally to only color the surface of the bricks.

Then painted the lintels with Tamiya Medium Gray using a 3/0 synthetic brush , good quality so that even though it's very small it can pick up quite enough paint to do a lintel in one stroke.

Happy I ordered these just before they closed down along with some other kits and some walls for scratchbuilding.

The Manual , the kit was not in a box but in a plastic bag.
The parts , all neatly sealed in the plastic bag.

Started by adding the corners to the walls .

Connecting walls , using the magnetic jig to get things perfectly square.

Made a small mistake on the corners , the corners of the back wall should be even with the side wall, fixed that by gluing a piece of corner on top, as you can see in the next photo.

Connected all the walls.

Next up roof supports.

Your own text on the sign , it reads Jan & Martha's Toys  , my parents names.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Wednesday the 24th
« on: July 24, 2019, 03:26:29 AM »
Chances are today or tomorrow will bring a new heat record to the Netherlands, temperature in the shade has never passed 40 but it most likely will , that's 104 F. Today I have to work but tomorrow I have the day off , guess where I'll be headed, the Spa . I always feel fresh and cool after a day of sauna's and cold baths.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Sunday June the 2nd

Good morning , we had a great day yesterday with the whole family together for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. Went to a Safari park where we had a private guided tour in a bus, and then in the evening we had a great dinner with all of us. My parents both 85 , had a wonderful day and it was great to see them enjoying quality family time. On to the 70th anniversary .

Today I will be doing mostly nothing at all because the temperature will rise to 90F, nice to just relax and lay back.

Rise and shine , more like rain and sh..... , that's about 10 days of rain non stop now .
F1 started this morning in Australia , 6 in the morning my time , gotta hate time zones.
Here's another one from Mike's layout at Ontraxs.

Kit Building / RSlaser Harris Door Manufacturing
« on: February 02, 2019, 04:16:20 PM »
Another RSlaser structure , we need more N-scale manufacturers like Rich and Darryl to name a couple.
The box. Always excellent packaging .

This is a backdrop structure with a little depth , the main part is the front wall.

Right away I had a small issue with the dormers , they are very vulnerable, I had to do something about that before they would break off.

I taped them with masking tape , and cut around the dormers.

This would be enough to keep them safe until the windows and the window frames were assembled, once those are in place the dormers won't be vulnerable.

The I braced the whole wall , leaving space for the horizontal bracing provided in the kit.

Then I spray paint the inside black.

Kit Building / Some small Metcalfe structures .
« on: January 26, 2019, 04:06:21 PM »
Metcalfe horse stable and log cabin. Just the photo's , same on my website.

Kit Building / Metcalfe Regal Cinema background cardstock build.
« on: January 15, 2019, 05:59:38 PM »
While waiting for paint to dry , decals to set etc. on the Wagon company build I started this lovely little cardstock build.

The envelope with the cardstock parts inside.
The parts are cut out of cardstock, you only have to cut 1 straight line of the parts to loosen them from the board.

Some of the windows with the glazing .

Build up and glazing of the shopwindows.

Everything is built up layer by layer.

Then installed to the main frame.

The box.
The manual.

Some of the contents.

Some of the parts in the original box weren't quite right , so Rich sent me the correct parts , because these were in an envelop without any worth on it they arrived earlier then the box because of customs and VAT.

The decal sheet, when I first saw them I thought Rich had made a mistake and sent me the H0 decals, they are quite large for an N-scale structure.

Good morning , it's a Saturday for me too , but nevertheless tomorrow will be Wednesday  ;)
My postal app says I will be receiving a package from RSLaser today, it contains my Winter Challenge contender , can't wait.

Good morning , getting colder here but the sun is out and I am off work so it's a nice day.

Kit Building / Lunde Studios City Bus Terminal
« on: December 16, 2018, 10:29:23 AM »
It's been a while since my last build , and I am not anywhere near the part of my layout where I plan this , but someone at asked for some Lunde Studio kits, so I'm building the Bus station now.
Box and contents.
Resin parts in color.

I will be painting some but not all parts , just weathering some of them.

Instructions with plenty of photographs , the signs are not decals , not a problem but maybe the BUS signs should have been decals. Don't think I will be using the Snailways signs.

Most of the parts are taped to the cardboard , I have no idea why these parts were hotglued , not handy.

First task , cutting and sanding off al the sprue parts.

Cutting out flash, easy because it is very thin.
