With Herstmonceux’s last show of the year done my attention has turned to Tarring Neville again. The main focus at the minute is the building that will cover the point switches. Its being based on a building not far from where I live and is again mainly flint.
The main shell was made up from foam board and the basic flint work done before doing the demo at Uckfield back in October.
The next step was to get the roof on. This meant adding some more foam board for the base and cutting a lot of tile strips from thin card. Each strip was then individually glued on and some ridge tiles made from the same card to finish it off. It takes a while but is well worth the effort.
Before adding all the guttering and other smaller details I decided it would be a good time to get most of the painting done. It looks rather good along side the smaller flint building and I could resist taking a couple of pictures of it on the layout.
Next i’m going to tone down the brick work and roof then start adding the rest of the details. I will then get and finish the stores building that will be opposite it and get them both bedded in.
