FLEETWELL – PART 8
Having completed my platforms I looked at the area available around where the station building would sit. Some of this area will be a car park for the station plus several bus stops. There would also be the small industries operating from the arches in the viaduct.
There is still some space available and I decided I would add some retail units to the car park area. I already had a Metcalfe Industrial unit but thought that this was not the ideal building I wanted. So I took the idea of the Metcalfe structure and cut my own from 1mm grey board as two pieces:
I had also found a website where I downloaded various store-fronts which I glued to the front elevation of the building, cutting out and glazing the doorways:
The rest of the walls I clad with Aged Red Brick TX81-00 downloaded from the club site. Then to match the front elevation I clad the upper half of the building with Corrugated Industrial Building Panelling TX119-00 again downloaded from the club website, I also downloaded detail sheet AX114-00 and cut out some air-con units and doors for the retail units:
The roof again is cut from 1mm grey board and clad with the TX119 panelling (just placed on to check size)
Now need to look at adding guttering etc.
I then looked at adding some interior detail:
Before placing on the layout I will be adding some LED lighting inside the buildings.
