Howdy all,

I have recently started building the only N scale limited run collectors kit offered by Bar Mills - "Billing's Bakery".

Though intended to be a bakery, I've decided to build this as a sail makers factory to go on my harbour layout.

So far I've braced all the parts going from the guide that comes in the instructions, stained all the parts with a mix of alcohol and india ink, and have layer up paint by drybrushing.

There's a sign included with the instructions that's designed to go on the front wall above the loading dock, but as I wanted to go in a different direction, I went online and found a suitable sign, which was printed out, trimmed to size and applied to the front wall as per the instructions in the kit.

Here's the progress so far:




Looking at these pictures, I appear to have missed notice that one of the windows has come out of the frame slightly. I'll fix that later!

Here's where I left the build progress last night:



I'll post more progress as I make it. :)

Dan,

That's a great looking kit. I like the colors and sign in particular; you're giving it a lot of character.

Mike

Cheers Mike. I've been a fan of "steam era" looking structures for a long time, especially wooden ones. So to finally be building up a stock of them for my own layout makes me pretty pleased. :D

Thanks Dave. I'm on the lookout for more detail parts - likely posters/signs etc.

I have built a few Bar Mills kits in all scales over the years. Good Fun and well put together kits.
The Sign work on this is fantastic.

Thanks for the advice and comments everyone.

I've not made a lot of progress on the build, but some is better than none, right? :)

Looks good Dan,
modeling in N scale makes it even more impressive!
Nice, Dave

I cannot imagine modeling in N scale. My peppers would be crying.
Outstanding work.
