As you can see I’ve made the station platform and a Wills Wayside Station kit.
The platforms are 7mm thick balsa wood, edged with Wills Dressed Stonework plastic sheet.
For the platform surfaces I used 0.5mm thick artists card, cut to size and then inscribed to produce stone edging slabs. I borrowed this technique from David Burleigh who described it in the December 2014 issue of OO9 News.
For the goods platform I distressed the edge slightly to make it look like the slabs have been broken during years of loading and unloading.
I found the goods van in a rummage box on the OO9 Society Sales Stand. I removed the chassis and cut one side to open the van doors.
I need to paint and weather the platforms and the buildings, but it’s a good start.
Were you expecting pagodas? Well, there are none. I thought the title ‘Platforms and Pagodas’ sounded better than ‘Platforms and Buildings’ and more people would read the blog! Did it work?
