When it comes to the buildings I seem to end up easily confused by the different variations on the line being both right and left handed. I seem easily confused by left and right at the best of times and would have to confess that I've more than once forgotten that the different ends of the buildings should be mirror images and ended up with two identical right hand side ends.
Today I put my "make the hole fit the window" idea into action - and this time I got my top and bottom confused when measuring so the windows in the station have ended up rather higher than they should be.
I also had fun with the goods shed. First of all I've noticed I put the bearers for the end canopy the wrong way round, which is why the angle is steeper than it should be.
My usual technique for painting Wills sheet is a blast of matt black, dry brushing with Royal & Langnickel's Pearl Black to simulate bare sheet showing through, and then a quick wash of Modelmates Rust Red. On this occasion the wash seems to have given a much stronger rust effect which I'm going to have to tone down.
