Nearly finished another little project for the layout. I really wanted a canopy to keep incoming and outgoing goods dry so purchased the Canopy kit from Metcalfe. Came together really well although quite fiddly for my chunky fingers lol. Still trying to find a glue I like for attaching the glass to the roof sections.

Still got the Waystation station to complete to go along with it. Going to reuse the Goods shed from my previous layout. Coming together nicely. Really happy with the way it turned out.

Sorry for dark photo's. Still dark this morning lol

Unfortunately I think this is the last Metcalfe Kit I'll get to build for a while. I really enjoy just sitting building these kit and time just seems to fly by. I don't think this small layout needs anymore big buildings as there just isn't the space.

I just need to add the finishing touches to the station and apply the layout's name board on it, I'll be finish the corners of the station with timber strips to try give the canopy a more wooden construction feel to it. Also complete installing ridge tiles and chimneys then another little project is completed.

Next Step: Micro Timber Yard :)  :beers:

Thank you for viewing and reading & I'll take some photo's in the light soon just I only see night with work lol

Minimal Update, Not had much time to work on the layout but had these little fiddly Chimney's and ridge tiles fitted. I'm waiting for some spare time to start on the timber yard. Anyways little short an sweet one this time but the Stone Pub & Shop along with the Houses have also arrived plenty still to do in hand. Still not 100% on where to put this Timber Yard

They look good. All too often the poor chimney pots get overlooked.

Your comment is much appreciated but on my smaller 'Bletchford' layout two of the three boards were completed over a year ago and the third has hardly been touched since :-[

Well started on the street section but like a total idiot forgot to fit the curtains above the Pub. Now do I cut out a section in the floor to try fit them or just leave it as it is? I've tried to detach the floor but it's going nowhere

It doesn't look right but seems I might destroy it trying the get the floor out  :worried:

Forgot to mention the green 'sill' looking above the Pub window is sagging abit and needs sorted out :)

Sorry, but the lack of curtains upstairs is a bit glaring so I think you need to fit some. Presumably once the roof is fitted the ceiling won't be visible so is it possible to gain access through there?

Thank you honesty is the best policy :beers:

Think I'll setup the curtains on a one piece length of cardboard and cut two small holes in the floor to get it through and do the same for the other side.

More I look at it the more I need to sort it out. I think I'll try it tonight and get it over with. I only really need one of these so could make the other a Pub also as a replacement just seems a shame to waste this one.

I'll post up the failure photo tonight lol

The alternative is to' board up' the ground floor as if the pub has sadly closed (like all too many :'()
