Today I was making a cupboard to cover the central heater in the kitchen so it's nicely out of sight. Something SWMBO was asking me to do for a while now (about 10 years, so it was about time...).
However, very coincidental, I had enough 6 mm. spare plywood for the start of a new building! And since I was already working with the jigsaw, glue and screwdriver I did 2 jobs at the same time!!

So, here is the rough starting of my "halle à marchandises".

Great....some modelling. Every station should have one.

Look forward to seeing it's development. Gald to hear that railway building projects don't take 10 years to start.

more than 3 months passed but I'm back on the project!

I painted the walls to "seal" the wood than I painted it with the mikeyh-mix: a
mix off cement with some diluted PVA. I added some paint in the mix as well.

Once the paint dried stones were made from Milliput. I'm halfway the walls now...

Nice work Paul. How did you do the platform it is standing on?

Thanks Clive!

The platform is made out of 'hypertufa'. It's a mixture of Potland cement, sand and perlite. It's used in making garden ornaments (if you Google on the word hypertufa you get some examples).
I've got the idea for using this after seeing some incredible work from a guy named 'graniteshop' on the old G-Scale-Mad forum.
The roads are made the same way, although I somehow made a lesser quality mixture for these; they brake apart while the goodshed platform is still rockhard...

I know, I'm quoting myself again...
The mentioned thread was later placed on GScalecentral: Options to avoid sharp corner, & steep grade.
Over 25 pages, but very interesting. Mostly all rocks etc are made from hypertuffa.

And here's a video on how to how to make / mix hypertuffa
