Product Description

The fettlers cottage is based on NSWGR Plan S.T. 106 of 1933 for a timber framed weatherboard and fibrous cement sheet ('Fibro') accomodation for fettlers and presumably other railways employees at times. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any photographs of these cottages and by now there would probably be none in existence.

This model of the walls and verandah structure is one of three parts of the cottage, the other two parts being the roof structure and a sprue of detail parts, doors, windows, water tanks, sheet metal fireplace and gutters.

This part is printed in White Strong and Flexible which gives a slight fine sandy texture to the surface and this may be sealed with several coats of high build automotive primer, sanding with 1500 grit Wet and Dry paper when dry or between coats when dry. Paint with the final colours either in the NSWGR 'Stone' colour scheme or the later pastel colour scheme (usually pale green blue or cream with white trim).

Given the era of the building I chose to paint it in the Stone colour scheme of the NSWGR. It would probably have been painted in the colour scheme of the station buildings of the time. Of course by the early 1960's station buildings were beginning to be painted in the various pastel colours.

The only magazine article that I am aware of regarding the NSWGR 'Stone' colour scheme is in Branchline Modeller No.1 - 'STONE' COLOUR SCHEMES FOR NSWGR BUILDINGS by James McInerney.

Please note that the model pictured has only has one coat of primer followed by the final colours to depict a perhaps more 'normal' finish and not the multiple coats of primer and rubbing back to smooth the surface.

I have produced this cottage because I simply liked it.
