This is inspired from our defunct line Port line/ Muelle De la Indutria line of Phil Nat'l Railway

(pictures are almost non existent) it will be connected to this factory, some warehouses and the cointaner port

station are built from air dry clay. the roof pillar i might change it thick paper for uniformity it's hard to mold the clay for small pieces

 

track gauge is at 6.9mm

 

Feedback is highly appreciated

redo the station this with Sintra board instead of air dry clay much easier to work on 🙂

Stuff like Sinatra and cardstock are a lot easier to use for stuff like this than the polymer clay. The colored scrapbooking cardstocks are nice as pretty easy to cut and they have color all the way through the material. You can even use it to wrap a Sinatra base framework.

 

cheers

Might try light colored cardstock to wrap the Sinatra to get smooth sides and sharp corners. Even construction paper can have some interesting texture at scale, just have to look for more regular building colors, but sometimes kids pads of it are in earth tones or other color sets that work well for buildings. You can fold it against a steel ruler edge to get nice sharp corners as well.

 

also the dollar store is a great place to look for odd little bits of things to use in modeling. Just have to walk around looking at stuff for not what it is but what it could be at 1/150 scale.

 

cheers,
