Ken's Scratch-Built OO Scale Supermarket & More | Model Railway Hints, Tips, How To Articles and Reviews at Model Trains Online
Last week, I received an email from a nice chap called Ken, who had recently built my OO Scale Country Pub kit and wished to share with me a photo of the finished model. He’d made a few tweaks and changes to it which really caught my eye. Then I noticed some other things in the background, including a rather splendid looking model of a Morrison’s Supermarket, of which I just had to see more! So I fired off a quick email to Ken, thanking him for his photos of the pub, which indeed, does look rather splendid and he came back with this rather delightful collection of photos of scratch-built buildings that he’s developed for his layout! Here’s Ken to tell us more about his OO scale layout, Holroyd…
“Hi Justin,
You expressed an interest in the Morrisons model next to the Pub, this is scratch built.  It is based on the first purpose built supermarket that Morrisons built in the sixties here in Bradford, there was no ground carpark only one on the roof.  The bus garage is also scratch built and based on one on Ludlum Street in Bradford and the carpark is just a generic carpark.
I have a very loose technique for scratch building in that I rarely scale or measure I just use a suitable vehicle and figure and start building everything to look right with them.  As regards to your Pub kit I just painted the green bits by hand before assembly and when the building was complete gave it a wash of grey/brown watercolour to darken the bricks.  The signs were painted by hand about 8” long and photographed and scaled down on the computer.
All the best.”
Just in case you missed the photos of the Country Pub that I posted up in the customer gallery on the Model Railway Scenery website, here they are again:
