Thanks Evert,
I now spent some time with my tape measure to work out the 25 cm spacing, but
whatever I did it just did not fit nicely.
So I tried some other spacing's and I think 22 cm is going to be the happy medium.
Now I just need to buy more lights.

Good morning all,
not much to show for the weekend, but I did try out my spacing for the platform lights.
Now my original idea was to have the lights spaced at 30 cm.
Then over the weekend I watched a you tube video about platforms and there the lights
where spaced at 18 cm.
Well I decided to take an old plank and drill some holes.
18, 25 and 30 cm spacing.
Excuse the slightly blurred photos as I did not get out the tripod.
So hand held shots from more or less the same spot for comparison.
First 18, then 25 and last 30 cm spacing.
What do you think is best?

Then I scribed lines into the wood to replicate individual planks.
Then weathering with chalks.

Aloha,
I wanted wooden floors in my signal box.
Local hobby shop didn't have scale planking in stock, but they had 0.8 mm
plywood.
So I bought a piece.
First piece cut to size.

Aloha,

close up after a black wash.
Unfortunately the photo does not show the dirt in the gutter so well.

Good evening all,
a bit more detail work on the roof.
The afore mentioned video also showed coloring some of the roof tiles in a different shade.
So I gave that a try.
Then I also changed the color of the gutter.
Tomorrow I will give this roof a nice black washing and see how that comes out.
Stay tuned.

Then I watched a German you tube video with a very interesting idea on weathering
roofs.
The idea is to dry brush black on the tiles from the bottom up to darken the edge of the tiles.
So I tried it.
I did not have my brush dry enough a few times, but I will continue with my attempt
at this signal tower.

Good evening all,
spent some time this weekend on my platforms.
Specifically the rear one.
Decided to use some off cuts as its not so visible.

Small update.
I made the triangular fill in pieces and fitted them.
First photo having a look how it all looks in place.
Second photo i applied a bit of filler and smoothed it out
and removed the excess.

I also got out the box of parts to complete my signal tower.
Remember that I am using two kits to build one building, I'm extending
the length over the track.
So the roof has to be modified as well.
Well after careful consideration and marking my cuts I applied the hacksaw
and cut.

Hi all,
thanks for the positive feedback, was quite a bit of work.
Filling all the corners down, I even filled my own skin off.  ::)
So now I also did the top of the wall on the section between the tunnels.
First photo the paint going on.
Second photo all painted.
