Looking good Mike. Always enjoy your work. This may have been asked previously, but I was wondering about your backdrops. Are they commercial or your own photo's.

John I think it will turn out O.K. but I doubt I'd buy from them again. Thanks Rob! My backdrops are commercial. The company is Realistic Backgrounds and they do have a website with pics of all the different backdrops.

I have the roof done and just have the platform (probably poured concrete) that the building will sit on and a light for the platform to go.




This is the angle that you will see it when it is installed on the layout:

That's looking good Mike,
And I bet it'll look good on your layout as well.

Hi Mike , just spent some time catching up through your layout thread and it proved to be well worth the time. Your building also came out great although I never would have thought of using a large lite bulb for interior liting, I'm usually pulling my hair out trying to find the perfect led.

Thanks guys! Lynn it isn't a large bulb just a small building . Also it's 12 volt but will be getting about 9 volts. If I could have found a smaller 12 volt bulb I would have used it. I don't use LED's for interior lighting as they are too directional for my tastes.

Mike, I just finished reading the last two pages and getting caught back up. Your depot is turning out really well in spite of the difficulties you've encountered with it.

Re: Jon's suggestion about using caulk to fill the gaps.... I ran into the same problem with windows not fitting the openings when I was building Bar Mills' "Majestic Hardware." I solved the problem by using some Elmer's Redi-Spack Lite to fill the gaps. It might be something to try if you run into a similar problem again.

Thanks Mike! For the record the problem wasn't with the windows fitting the openings in the wall. It was the windows fitting the window frames. Sorry for any confusion.

Nice looking depot Mike, with the battens being different color than the siding it really makes it stand out. Nice build.

Thanks Tim! As the story goes this depot would be serving an occasional passenger, some lcl freight and it also serves as the home office for the railroad so they want to keep it looking decent.

Mike,
Good looking depot and I am glad to see you were able to overcome the kits short comings with no problem.

When do we get to see the station installed on the layout.

Mike,
I like that station you have definately done it justice.I have to find some time somewhere so I can catch up with your layout.

I think I am going to go back to work so I can have time to do the fun things in life.
