It is a rare model railroad in this day and age that does not host at least one plastic building assembled from a kit. Among the advantages of plastic kits besides their relative ease of assembly is the minimal number of tools required for their construction. Look over the tool list before getting started with your project and add the missing items to your tool kit. With basic assembly complete, set the model aside and allow the cement to fully harden before proceeding. To provide a base for the color coats of paint to adhere, the entire building is given an overall coat of gray primer. Remember to always work in a well ventilated area or out of doors when using spray paints since the fumes can be harmful.
At the same time that the primed carcass is drying, the small parts were primed separately and given a color coat while still attached to the carrier sprues.
The window frame inserts were to be white on the finished model so these were sprayed with two light coats of flat white spray primer while some of the other small parts were primed and later brush painted in appropriate colors.
Whether one chooses to airbrush, spray or brush paint their models it is usually a good idea to mask off the areas that will have differing colors applied. One of the more common ways to add this shading is to use an alcohol base wash colored either with black India ink or black or dark gray acrylic paint.
Just as a dark wash is used to accentuate the details and crevices on a model, dry brushing with a light shade of paint replicates the play of light of our models. White Wash can be easily simulated on models with the use of flake white oil artist oil paint. As final assembly approaches all that is left to do to finish the models is to add the window glazing and attach the signage. By following these easy steps and using some of the tips and techniques presented here, the completed models assembled from basic plastic kits are ready to be added to the layout.

Since I'm preparing materials for an upcoming layout design, I have begun assembling a series of buildings to populate the project. One of the areas that will be included on the layout is a small steam locomotive servicing area that includes a water tank and coaling crane. Micro-Mark® has recently released a grain enhancing tool that is the easiest method I’ve found to consistently add this detail to your models. Once mastered, the Grain Enhancing Tool will become an essential part of your tool collection.
Product DescriptionThis is the HO Scale Pennsylvania Railroad Standard Tool House Kit from American Model Builders.
Product FeaturesIn the days when each section of the railroad had its own track gang, these small buildings were an essential part of operations. Product DescriptionThis is the East Junction Tool Shed Kit Model Railroad Building HO Scale by JL Innovative Design.
Most of us have our layouts populated by dozens of these readily available and easily constructed scenic structures. Since nearly all of the pieces are molded in the correct shape and size most of the tools are used to remove the parts from their carrier sprues and to clean off any burrs and flash them.


Since these tools are readily available and inexpensive one should be able to fill out their tool box for around $20.00.
At this point a decision needs to be made as to which detail parts will be attached to the structure. This has a secondary benefit in allowing the true colors to show since they will not be shaded by the molded color of the plastic.
This is easily done with masking tapes that are readily available from a variety of outlets. A medium brown (Polly Scale D&RGW Building Brown) and a darker brown (Polly Scale Rail and Tie Brown) thinned with water were randomly brushed on to simulate the varying wood tones.
To accomplish this play of light on our small models one needs to resort to a bit of visual trickery. This mixture can be made by the modeler by trail and error or purchased ready made from a number of vendors.
If the results are not as dark as wished, additional applications are used until the desired results are reached. The builder is now at the stage of painting and adding some of the added details that really make a model stand out. Since this mixture lacked any binding agents it would wash off in a year or two’s time and would need to be reapplied regularly.
By heavily dry brushing this paint over a previously wood grained model one can capture the hit and miss nature of this finish.
One of the biggest challenges when glazing the windows is to get a neat installation with out glue smears and chemical crazing on the clear plastic. Contact the seller- opens in a new window or tab and request a shipping method to your location. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Usually it is far easier to construct the structures and have them on hand even beforethe benchwork is built. For these I chose the Quincy & Torch Lake Water Tank (Part #028) and Coal Loader (Part #041) kits from Durango Press. Each kit uses smoothly milled and precision cut fine-grained bass wood components for their wooden structure.
The tool uses the technique of pyrogravure or wood burning which should already be familiar to most of us.
Also included is an easy-to-follow set of instructions that will have you set up and graining quickly.
Inside, the gang would store tools as well as extra spikes, bolts and other supplies, along with their hand car or gasoline powered speeder.
To assure that these joints are tight the pieces can be clamped until the cement has fully set. As a rule leave off those parts that will have a different finish color from that of the overall building. For most colors gray works well since it is opaque and covers the base color, however, for white, yellow, orange and occasionally red, a primer coat of white will work best. The newer blue and green versions seem to work best for model use since they have a lower tack than the old tried and true khaki colored tapes. The graining can be further accentuated once the stains are dry by the use of a fiber glass eraser to scour the finish. By applying a dark wash that will pool in the crevices and detail of the model’s surface, shadows are created to enhance this appearance of depth and realism. These washes will work not only for toning plastic models, but are also useful with wood, card stock and other media.
Details parts can be painted using any one of the various application methods, however, it is frequently easier to brush paint these small parts. One simply wipes off most of the paint on their brush and then scours the surface of the model thereby highlighting the raised details. While the ACC glues are easy to use and set quickly, one of the side problems of their uses is that they frequently will cloud clear parts. This water based clear drying adhesive is also useful for attaching figures, separate details, scenery items and clear parts.


If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. This assures that they fit into the plan and inevitably saves a lot of time in completing the layout as you imagined it. These are inexpensive wood craftsman kits that include die-cast metal and plastic detail parts.
In our larger world, timber grows with denser, harder grain layered next to softer, pithier grain as a function of seasonal growth cycles.
Since this tool does get very hot during operation (and will easily burn your work area as well as yourself if not careful), another item that you may want to consider using is a soldering iron stand (Item #60381) to hold your hot tool when not in immediate use. Since using it to build the water tank and coaling crane, the tool has been used with great results on almost a dozen subsequent models.
Usually found near stations, interlocking towers or other company facilities, they were painted in the same colors as other railroad buildings. Make certain that the walls are square by checking their alignment with your square as you proceed with construction. For example, if both the building and windows will be painted white, go ahead and install them.
While the best results using this technique are had by using specialized brushes to apply this finish, a firm soft bristle brush can be pressed into service. Finally, check over your work and touch up any paint work necessary as well as fix any loose or misaligned parts.
One continuous stroke will provide a smoothly grained board without any burns; however, pausing in mid-stroke may leave a light char. This small structure is based on a standard Pennsy design (Ideal for use with the New Freedom, Pennsylvania, depot kit, #152-141, sold separately.) that looks right alongside any station. However, if the building is tan and the windows white, set the window castings aside and paint them separately. The easiest and cleanest way that I have found to install clear plastic glazing in plastic models is Testors Plastic Model Cement. The question is how do you enhance the level of detail and make two otherwise complete kits stand out in the foreground of the scene?
Therefore the most obvious means of adding extra detail is to accentuate the wood grain on each structure. Wood burning has an ancient history and traces it origin as far back as early Egypt as a means of decorating wood and leather.
When used properly, little or no smoke or fumes will be given off during the tool’s operation. The structure features authentic board and batten siding, rolled tarpaper roofing and peel and stick windows. Do not hesitate to mix and blend various colors to get the exact shade or finish on a part. This product has a thicker body than the regular liquid cements while flowing easier than the old school tube glues. This replicates the natural growth and decay in our fine-grained wood and effectively adds a degree of both texture and weathering to our model. More recently it is used by decoy and wildlife carvers to add fine details such as feathers, fish scales and even hair to their works. In addition this glue can be used to attach parts to painted plastic surfaces with a high degree of success. While it is possible to grain material once assembly has started, using the tool before assembly of the model begins yields the best results. Away from the tracks, the finished model can be used as a one-car garage alongside any older home.
Graining can be done on pre-stained and painted wood as well; again, my best results were to add the grain before painting.
