Severn Models Signal Box
« on: November 07, 2018, 08:09:15 PM »
Having driven myself balmy over the last few days with painting, lining and decaling locomotives, I thought I could do with a bit of a change. Therefore I dug out my Severn Models signal box kit. I built one a few years ago for a layout project that never happened but this one is being built for a client. While my first attempt was glued together, this one is being soldered. I need the interior detail kit (hopefully at Warley) before I can finish it but I can get things like the steps on in the meantime.

Progress after a couple of hours below.

They are fiddly to build but great little kits. I built one for my Porthkerry layout, I glued mine though not soldered.


Cheers, Stu

Sorry for the delay in replying Stu, very nice!

Since my opening post, I've finished the signal box and it has gone off to its new home.

Very impressive, Steve. Really looks the part.
I'm not sure if life is passing me by, or trying to run me over.

Very nice, Steve. And an excellent paintjob, too.

A question, if you don't mind: does the kit come with the fire buckets or were they a separate item?

Thank you guys!  :-[

Hi Pete,

The model has been detailed with the interior kit (available separately from Severn Models), guttering and drain pipes from various bits of wire and a scratch build walkway (a piece of scribed nickle silver.

However, in answer to your question, the fire buckets were 3D printed on my printer to a design I based on various photographs on the web. If there is sufficient interest, I'd be willing to add them to my range in the new year.

Well, I'm sufficiently interested! Have looked at a couple of white metal options and not been impressed with the apparent quality - in fact, a lot of WM items seem to have been left too close to the fire for a while.

The Severn Models kit doesn't really work for my proposed layout, but that interior detailing set looks the business  :thumbsup:

Hi Atso,

A lovely job done on that signal box  :thumbsup: :D :thumbsup:

I have some white metal fire buckets on my signal box, and as Pete said, they are a bit "Lumpy"

If you are printing any, I would certainly want some for my signal box, and also for window cleaners, and all sorts of uses.

Just let me send you some dosh  ;D ;D

All best wishes
Kevin
