HO 3524 Vollmer Station
« on: June 22, 2020, 08:38:58 PM »
Good Evening All,

So last night I decided that before I build the Platforms I should rather build the Station.
So here we go.....

The idea is to make everything as realistic as possible, so I will be painting all parts, as I do not like the plastic look of some of the parts.
I have also decided to keep the colours as per the kits as far as possible, but with realistic effects.

I painted all the walls, windows and wood trims.
The bricks I painted brick colour as that funny brown, just look wrong.

Windows, was repainted White with a grey wash
Walls, was painted cream, to get rid of the glossy plastic look
Bricks was a colour changed.
Wood was painted brown, then musterd colour dry brushed and then painted with black wash.

Enjoy the pictures  :biggrin:

Cheers, Evert

Looks good.  :thumb:
Little tip, try not to use the base, those platforms are much to short. Rather build your own
platforms completely from scratch.

Yes, thank you Jörg, the Platform does in anycase not fit my track shape. I'll use it as a example, but will build my own  :thumb:

Okay its only for the platform roof, but maybe an idea for you.

Good Morning All,

So, the build have started  :biggrin:

I do not like the way that you have to build each wall of the building complete and then assemble everything afterwards.
I sand every piece and like to pre-fit before I glue.

So I use the instructions as guidelines only and make sure the correct parts go where they should.
So I start to assemble the 4 walls and to make sure they are square I use my very reliable Lego Blocks  :biggrin:

Starting to look very nice now  :thumb:

Enjoy the pictures.
Cheers, Evert

I also did the Goods Shed as it is a separate build to the main building.

Same here, I first got the walls assembled and square and then I add the window frames and the trimmings.

I'm going to use the base for this part as it is cobble stones and will look very nice.
I repainted it grey as the funny brown colour does not work for me.
Then I dry-brushed some brown and green over that. Lastly I made a black wash and painted that over and left it to dry properly.

I still need to do something with the Doors, last picture, but not sure yet. Ideas are welcome  :howzit:

Cheers and speak again soon.
Evert

Hi Evert,

those obviously wooden doors, so a brown base color, weathered differently as the one door is under the roof.
Maybe try and open one door, concrete floor in the goods shed then you can also detail the inside.

I also painted the roofs, kept it the same redish brown colour with a Black Wash over.
The final result came out slightly darker, but I do like it and I think it looks good.

Roof were fitted, not a easy task to get all that lined up.
Then I built the chimney's and I also decided to fit the wooden fascia at the ends of the roof.

The door that is still not in place will be glued in, in an open position.
Currently I'm busy sorting out the interior.
I already printed out the floor and drew out the profile for the waiting room benches.

Will put some pictures up of that later in the week.

Cheers, Evert
