Default Interiors

Good Afternoon All

I have a plastic station building that I was given by a friend, looking at it all its just the shell of the building. I have built 2 Metcalf signal boxes and fitted them out with Metcalf and Ratio Interiors and added various men to operate the signals.

I cannot seem to find any interiors for stations - is there any or a plastic or card kit that comes with them.

My scratch building isn't that great at the moment, its hard to distinguish what the item's are, but getting better. So was looking at buying first if there was any. I dont really want to put a light in and just shine of the four walls.

Advice or guidance is greatly appreciated

Apart from signal box interiors I haven't come across any interior furniture fittings so It's a case of scratch building I'm afraid. I agree about lighting empty rooms so what I generally do is stick a piece of tissue paper to the inside of the window. The translucent effect then looks just like frosted glass.

Scalescenes also do laser cut furniture, carpets, etc
Printing of the net or cutting out of glossy mags (argos catalogue) are good sources for wall decor.
I had a go at a , but I cant say you see much throught the window once fitted!

Linka once made furniture called Linka Rooms,






but it's impossible to find them now!


Worth a shufty at what P D Marsh do

The modern equivalent is 3D printing Example Dave available at Shapeways

Worth a search through the Laser Cut suppliers and the Etched Brass brigade

Given the 3ft rule, I have decided a roaring Fire is more worthwhile.
