Anyway - on to the Station.. I've made all 7 chimney stacks (albeit making and fitting the pots, which I'll do as final detailing to avoid knocking them off) and started to fit them to the roof.
Initially I'd planned to fix them to the flat roof base and then fix the sloping roof around them. This was proving to be a little tricky, so in the end I ripped the stacks back off (ripping being the operative word as I'd glued them in with that traditional modeller's medium of NO NAILS), but not before marking the angle of the roof, and the cut the slope off the stack, to glue flush to the slope. I've so far made the full roof for one of the bays and started the second, using cereal box card as the base.
