    Here is the station for Georgetown and is loosely based on the real one here in Georgetown,ON. It is HO scale and is made out of corrugated cardboard and cerealboard. The glaze for the windows is made from those coffee can lids. It is painted with acrylic paint.

    Robin, that is one swell job. I particularly like the opaque window glazing. They don't have that blank look.

    MasonJar It's not rocket surgery

    Nice work Robin... and quick too (as usual). That HO module is coming along nicely!

    I cannot make it out - are the windows a "frosted" look from a clear coffee lid, or are they that black shiny plastic?

    Thanks for the encouragement folks. Andrew. The coffee can lids I have and use let light through but have a milky appearance so I wouldn't say they are clear .

    Looks great as usual.
    I haven't been here much lately, have been busy moving, but what is this, Robin doing HO ??

    Jesper, it was a challenge given me by Val(spitfire) and Johnathan(Catt!) This will be for my friends to play with while I get on with my N gauge layout which is far from being ready to operate. A fun project though.

    Wow Robin - it looks fantastic!!! Do you have any progress shots of the building? I'd like to see how you fitted the roofs. :)

    Ralph's for fun!

    That's a beautiful station! The coffee lid idea for transluscent windows is clever. I could get a never ending supply of them at work. We coffee hounds polish off those cans on a regular basis and some of my coworkers simply THROW THE LIDS AWAY!!!!!!! :)
    Mine, I think!
    Thanks Robin!

    Boy, Robin, big or small, your structures are all works of art. :thumb:

    Is there nothing you CANNOT do with cerealboard? :confused: :D

    Sorry Val, no progress shots on this one. I just thought doing so would be repetitious but will have to remember to do so in future.
    Thanks for the kind words.

    Parking lot

    I wanted to paste some background to the station and thought there should be a parking lot so found some pictures on the internet, cut them out and pasted them on the background
