East African Railway Station - Part 2

Having completed the basic structures I fitted the window frames and glued in the roof bases in place.

I then cut out what will become the platform from a piece of double thickness foam core board and cut a lip and recess of 3mm, into which I fixed strips of stoneface textured plasticard.



For what will be the corrugated iron roof I constructed the basic form in heavy card and glued it in place. The corrugated iron will be fixed to this in due course.

While all the glue was setting I cut pieces of roofing iron. These I cut from a sheet of HO scale cortucated iron textured plasticard - I used the HO sheeting because corrugations on the OO scale sheet, that is nearer to 28mm, looked out of scale.
