i need a depot for the train to bring fishermen to norton's, and the one i had was awesome but took up too much room, so i opted for a smaller depot.
here's the cover of the box:
and the contents of the box:
to eliminate the need for interior bracing art has decided to cut the walls out of thicker plywood. it's pretty thick. 1/8". there are a few castings that came with the kit. a chimney, some barrels and some pretty lame fake gooseneck lamps. a smokejack, a fuse panel/electric meter and a chimney round out the castings. the roofing is "slate". 've never done slate so that should be interesting.
here's the walls painted. i decided to go with traditional burnt umber for the windows, doors and trim, and cableknit gray for the walls.
and here are the walls all trimmed out.
i still have to weather them, add window treatments and back the windows and doors with black paper
the station comes with a prescribed self adhesive platform and base. i think i'm just going to hit it with silverwood, maybe two coats. i don't know.

Kevin nice job on the burn barrel. Boy dose that bring back memories. Spent a lot of time in the winter around barrels just like that on the job site.

Kevin, Nice job on the oil drum. Looks suitably decrepit. Certainly is a nice casting.

Fantastic weathering and finish Kevin.
I still spend time around a burn barrel and you got it perfect.
Brett's details at SWSM are the best.

sierra west scale models recently released a line of details that brett designed and 3d printed. this one in particular is a deteriorated oil drum (barrel).
the casting (with prototypical wall thickness):
casting primed with rattle can flat black orimer
after about a half an hour playing with chalks and alcohol
these are real cool. i spent many hours standing around a burn barrel just like this one. check it out. swsm came up with some other really cool details and they are available for sale.
i have no affiliation with sierra west scale models other than really enjoying building his kits. this is a perfect burn barrel.

I never rely on self-sticking glue.
I do like Bar Mills kits.
You did a fine job.

Kevin, nice work on your station!
I thought that station platform would be full of eager fisherman.
