4mm Scale Corfe Castle Station Building - 9

One month in to a two month project. The canopy was a delight to design. It includes textured roof corrugations


and full framing underneath with photo realistc spandrels.


Pipework too is full represented


The build thus far represents about two thirds of the entire station building it seems to me that this could stand on its own as a fine Victorian country station for any Southern location :)


Four more modules to design and make. There is a complex annex to design but next I shall do one of the simpler annexes at the house end of the building.

4mm Scale Corfe Castle Station Building - 7

I planned to complete the ticket office this week but other events caused delay and we have an unfinished model, as can be seen from the photo.

This module turned out to be more difficult than expected with the most challenging part being the dormer window that took a day alone to design and build. All those angles!

The two poster boards show a timetable and an advertisement for the west of England car carrier train. The timetable is not for the Swanage Branch but it does not matter because the text is so small it is unreadable! The advertising poster is my own design based on 1960s railway poster art.

Unfortunately the poster board on the right should have been placed between the two windows. By the time I realised this the glue had set. It could be cut off and the resulting damage to the wall stone decoration repaired but that would leave a noticeable scar. Positioned next to the door is a more logical place as it gives balance with the other board but it could not be so in practice as there is a stone ledge in the way that seems to serve no purpose other than decoration.

Postscript: The ledges were used to support a canopy over the entrance that once existed in the distant past.
