More Buildings Taking Shape!

The Christmas Period was as busy as ever with Ice Hockey and seeing family taking up a lot of time.  I did however manage to progress with another building or two on my N Gauge model railway project.

The next buildings to take shape saw me build Metcalfe Kit PN133 N Scale Signal Box Set.  This kit comprises of 4 buildings in total, a large LNWR signal box, a smaller version of the signal box, a platelayers hut and a lamp hut.

Once again the kits are very detailed and the instructions are easy to follow.  Although it has to be said that building the steps is quite possibly the hardest thing I have had to do so far as placing each individual step on an N Gauge model is not a straightforward process.

Luckily though taking my time over a couple of winter afternoons saw me complete the kits and I’m very happy again with the results.

I was also give a couple more sets for christmas which I will build in due course.  Hopefully this year will also see the start of building the baseboards as I actually look to move this project further forward.

Another N Gauge Building Takes Shape!

This weekend saw me complete another of the Metcalfe Models Card Kits for my N Gauge Model Railway Project.

The kit that I completed this time was PN109 -‘Railway Station Buildings’, I must say the kit was superb and really like the little touches, such as the coping stones for the roof and adding the matchsticks to the barge boards to give the building so depth.

As you can see from the images above and below I do have a small amount of excess Uhu Glue that needs removing but overall the model was very easy to put together and looks fantastic.

The structure of the buildings once built is very good with plenty of strength and even though the waiting shelf is a very small building it really does look great!

I look forward to putting both building in place on my layout, once I have a baseboard that is!
