A shed for Hopwood

Shed for Hopwood model railway
The last of the Hopwood main buildings and possibly the simplest; a faceless industrial to stop the eye at the end of the parcels line. A shimmy into Kernow Guildford last weekend picked up some Wills asbestos sheet and this seemed like a good place to use it. A little research flagged up the often lack of guttering on these buildings and the L shaped roof edging; presumably to stop damage. These were made up from folded 5mm wide strips of 10 thou. Faceless and featureless.


  1. You paint finish looks very effective. Please tell us more.

  2. Pale grey paint. Dark grey wash, small brown wash. Sprinkle of talc before it dries completely.
