This is a small project I have been working on for my rural station module. This segment does not include a complete "how-to" but rather covers parts of the build not covered elsewhere. Officially, according to Southern Railway's Standard Plans it is called a TOOL HOUSE. Most would recognize it as a speeder/ handcar shed.
This is the completed, or at least 90% completed shed. The exterior sheathing is Evergreen Models styrene, # 4101 Clapboard.
This view shows the roof. I made the diagonal shingles by using a pair of Pinking shears to cut strips from cardstock. The shingle strips were then added using 3M spray adhesive. Once the strips were added I sprayed the roof with more of the spray adhesive to add some texture to the roof. Once that dried it was sprayed a flat black. Then weathered by dry-brushing with white acrylic paint.
The window is from Grant Line Products. I wanted an open window so I cut the mullions from the lower part and built a frame around the removed mullions using .030 x .030 Evergreen Models styrene strips. Then glazed the upper and lower section with .015 clear styrene.
And since it does house a handcar, here is a shot of the handcar. For the interior of the shed walls I used Evergreen Models styrene, # 4083 Novelty siding.
For the details on how I painted and weathered the shed, please go to the January folder and see the "How to achieve that rustic look" post. The foot print of this neat little shed is 2 1/2 x 3 9/16, not including runway section. The runway is built using HO gauge rail, set to O gauge, five foot. The wood planking is a product made by Forster called "Skinny Sticks". Similar to coffee stirrers but much more uniform.
Hope you enjoyed.
