STEP BY STEP
1 This is one of the easiest plastic kits you’ll ever build. Assemble the four walls around the floor section. When the glue’s dry, paint the interior grey, along with the lower part of the levers.
2 Cut the clear plastic glazing to fit the window frames. Use a pin-point applicator to apply the poly cement so that you don’t smear it onto the glazing.
3 Paint the roof using the same grey paint. Then dry-brush on a little white to bring some relief to the detail, followed by some matt varnish.
4 Paint the Osborn’s signal box plate using Railmatch GWR light and dark stone enamels. When dry, fix the ’box nameplate using Woodland Scenics glue.
5 Osborn’s also produces a 3D-printed signalman. Because the windows are quite small, I painted him using Tamiya flat black.
6 Paint the signalman’s face and hands using a flesh colour and glue him into position. Paint the lever handles in suitable colours, then glue on the roof.
