  • Excellent water tower with added access hatch and a brass wire ladder.
  • "An #39under the tree#39 Christmas diorama project using 2 x 00-73 oo under arch shop fronts and B 00 – 05 medium signal box. The snow is tissue paper (toilet roll) and the illuminated tree is a £1 shop item strung with cheap led’s from China."
  • "This is a model of the signal box at Ripon. It was built by the NER and is a variant of one of their standard boxes. It lasted until about 1967.
While it bears little resemblance to any of the Lcut boxes available, it wasn't too difficult to work out how to make it by selecting the individual parts needed - in fact many of the parts used are not particularly for signal boxes at all. "
  • Very well built coal staithes by Simon#39s son.
  • Beautiful example of work by Claire and Martin Gilmore.
  • Absolutely stunning warehouse build, painted, and decorated by Paul.

  • "This engine shed took just over a week to complete I love the way brick work come together I use acrylic paint and black weathering powder, windows I use acetate for the glazing and weather them with black weathering powder,  glue is PVA did try super glue but would not recommend it."
  • "Built for the Mere & District's new O gauge layout "Mere Abbas". The signal box has Scalelink gutters and finials plus York Model's tiles added. The station building has been modified to a hipped roof and replacement chimney stacks have been scratch built. Tiles and gutters are as the signal box. The station awning has "lead rolls" added to create more detail."

  • "Llanteulyddog Station building - a low relief station building made from the early 20th century small station' supplemented by 2 station canopy kits."
  • "B OO-28E and B OO-28M canopy kits, added together or shortened to get what was needed. I added barge boards on the end faces to give them a finished look. Painted in early British Railways period colours."
  • "Ninham's Yard signal box is a freelance, working 3 sided representation of a signal box for my 7mm Shunting Puzzle layout which is at an advanced planning stage. The windows, brackets, bottom brickwork and roof are LCUT products with the rest being a mixture of scored balsa, mdf and sheet plastic. As the box is to be used as an actual signal box and control area (point levers are from DCC Concepts) I used window frames on both sides of the glazing for a better look. All paints are brush applied acrylics"

  • "First attempt -  For a station layout of Masham (Yorkshire), being modelled with buildings as per original in 1930. Weighbridge office, built from the kit but adapted as per prototype with external chimney with distinctive decor strip, no window next to door and detailing. Finished in North Eastern Railway colours, which it was probably still in at that time."
  • "Masham Goods Shed. A standard North Eastern Railway shed. This couldn't be made with the Goods Shed kit (wrong dimensions, wrong window shapes and NER sheds didn't have the round windows in the end walls), so designed from individual parts. Distinctive NER 16-pane windows from joining 2 12-pane 00-26C windows. Drainpipes from paper-clips, with slivers of plastic tube slid on for support mountings. Strange downpipe from roof overhang is how NER built them!"
  • "Building showcasing the BM 40-00 roof tile strips. Beautifully finished by Clare and Martin with acrylics, weathering powder, and lacquer."
  • "A station based on station in Pulborough in West Sussex. Mostly parts from LCUT creative with some kitbashing as well,  along with scrap card and even wooden coffee stirrers where they can`t be seen."

  • "One and a half coaling stage kits attached to the water tower kit and detailed with a mikes models coal hoist, dart castings figures, express models working gas light and finished off with crushed coal from the east Lancashire railway"
  • "There is a figure in the cabin with a lighting system. The fire buckets and seagulls are from the dart castings range and the sign (named after my better half Maria) is from sanky scenics."
  • "I've turned LCC's Medium Station into a run-down and worn office building, this done by adding another floor, and fitting custom-cut parts to create something designed in the 1920/30's with no thought to aesthetics,  just function.   The top storey has been set off-centre and large bricked-up windows put in on the first floor,  just to mix things up a bit. 
Painting is the usual method of red primer spray,  washes and weathering powders.  Glazing & guttering is done, with downpipes, waste-pipes, interior fitting and lighting still to do"

  • An exceptionally well finished goods shed in O gauge by Steve Farrands. Comment from Steve: "The main building was constructed as a full relief building. I did not use the upper floor opening, which I adapted into making a vehicle workshop to go at the side of the warehouse. I had pictures of a particular warehouse I wanted to model and using colour photographs of the actual building I made the main unit. The windows were adapted by cutting out the middle frame and once glazed the open part was added to the main frame. The glazing was ordinary wood glue dragged across the panes using a cocktail stick. Some panes had dried broken but I think they look very realistic for broken panes of glass. I added guttering and downpipes as well."

  • "This project initially started with the idea of recreating a scale model of a signal box which no longer exists , and was demolished circa 1965 . Old photographs existed which were sourced from the Internet.
Information was forwarded to LCUT with approximate sizes , and from this a bespoke design was created and supplied by LCUT in kit form, it was decided to use scenic paper to cover the building although this had mixed results it was quite pleasing to see the end result. Lineside cabinets from Bachmann Scene Craft Range were used to replicate the original design."
  • "This is my first attempt at constructing an LCUT building. It is based on station building 00-04 finished in Southern Railway colours with the addition of glazing and Ratio Models guttering and downpipes. Picking out individual bricks in a variety of colours added variety and was worthwhile despite being rather tedious!"
  • "Two kits were used with smoke stacks, (from kit offcuts and plastikard roofs mounted on Peco track spikes), added rooflights and heavier gables.
The downpipes use florist's wire and guttering is from corn flake packet card.
Internal walls use yellow brick paper on thicker card for added thickness.
The end walls were altered with the addition of saving brick arches and concrete lintels.
The doors have added plastic strip on the outside for thickness and thicker bracing on the insides.
Finally the roof was slated with Superquick slate paper cut into strips and hung using the etched slates as guides.
The brickwork was coloured using pastel pencils - laborious but worthwhile!"

  • "Finished the warehouse and very pleased with the construction. I decided to use mounting board for the floors rather than the kit floor. Also I found gluing balsa strips to the wall sections kept them from bowing."

  • My first LCUT kit and have already ordered more. I used enamel paints thinned. Care has to be taken with water based paint as the outer layer can come away if over wetted. The interior was scratch built using plasticard. I like the precise way thing fit together and look forward to seeing more kits, especially terrace housing.

  • This is an OO scale model of Houghton Mill on the River Great Ouse at Houghton, near Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire. The mill is owned and operated as a working flour mill by the National Trust. I volunteer at the mill mainly in the construction and repair of interactive displays. We decided that during this closed season we would build a new attraction telling of the passage of grain from seed to table. I have obtained some 5 foot diameter circular tables which will be used, one is as base, the other is just the top which will rotate on the base. The display will be in quarters showing :- Ploughing and Sowing with Winter, Spring and Harvest, The Mill and finally a Bakers Shop with Tea Room. It is intended that the visitors will turn the top to see the various parts of the model through a window. The mill has been constructed on a mount board armature using proprietary plastic walling and LCut roofing and windows, the windows were a special order made to size, a total of 62 were made for me. I used a set of photocopied plans with a large number of photographs to get the proportions correct and incorporate as many details as possible. In order to get a good effect I have had to use a certain amount of license with some details but I hope that the overall effect will be pleasing to our visitors. We expect to have it on display when the Mill reopens to the public on 26th March 2015.
