Bob,

Looks fantastic. Perfect choice on the roofing; it looks more northwestern.

That's a nice little station, Bob. I agree with your assessment of Bar Mills Kits.

A quick note. I wasn't sure if it was you that did the 3D printing of a steam engine or not. I see you do have that compound curve for the steam and sand domes.

Bernd, Fusion made it easy. When I drew the domes I made sure their base fully extended into the boiler and then extruded a circle (the size of the boiler) through the base.

Mike, Here's a picture;


The station and a small residence building will go where the two story building is in the picture. This scene is out of normal reach so it will be the first area with full scenery since it has to be done before the foreground goes in.

Bob:

The existing scene looks pretty good to my eyes. However, I am looking forward to seeing a pic of once your recently completed depot is set in place.

While I was Finishing my station I found myself asking; Where is this Agent going to live? Then I saw an ad one the bottom of this web page from Ebay featuring this kit;


That would be perfect. And. it was only $10! It came today. The instruction are well done. They give what you need to assemble the building but there's nothing on paint or weathering. The Wood siding is of Good quality. They provide a tar paper roof that I will replace with wood shingles. The windows and doors are Laser cut stock of some sort. Each has 3 pieces and are assembled with a peal and stick method. It does make the window easier to paint. No foundation is supplied. Here are the pieces painted;



When my computer crash I lost my slicer program so I have been new versions of slicer programs. I really like Citubox. It's easy to use, make copies and position the model.
Testing these slicer have given me the opportunity to improve the quality of my prints with the objective of being able to print Passenger car sides and architecture details.
Here's some of my prints. What works for the window mulleins doesn't work for the wall straightness but I'm getting closer.



I hope you enjoyed this.

Bob

assembling the doors and windows wasn't as bad as I feared. It really is going together quickly. I just need to do the roof.



I need to repaint the chimney.

I've got a couple of those Laser Kits. They do look very clean and easy to build.

I really like your brick walls. They came out nice. Gives me hope for the same quality.

A couple of questions. What printer are you using and resin? What size are those bricks?
