Nicks workshop mutterings

Various railway orientated modelling projects in my new workshop/railway room.

Lilac Cottage update

It is taking a long time but at last I am managing to move forward the cottage I am building for Pendon museum.

All the brickwork and stone work has been embossed and painted, the windows have been put in and the shell has been folded up from the flat parts. It now sits in it’s own cellar base which will be used when the model is eventually set into the scene.




The upper floors have been put in place. The box like structure that can be seen in some views is the light box to take internal lighting to two of the upstairs rooms.

The next step is to make the chimneys, again from embossed brickwork and then start to build up the profile of the roof ready for thatch to be laid.
