Maxwell Park

Hi Modellers, As you know I design the kits for PopUp Designs laser cut kits. I am keen to design stations in Glasgow and am drawn towards Maxwell Park. (It is an interesting island station and one I used to use.) However as it is on 2 levels with the entrance on the upper level, I would be very kee...

The kit is offered in 2 parts A and B and offers lots of options to configure the model - plus adding further kits to expand the layout. This sho...

PopUp Grangemouth Shed

Hi, I m just completing the prototype of a PopUp kit of a shed similar to Grangemouth. The basic shed has 4 roads (with its repair shed) and can be extended by an expander kit of 2-roads. Grangemouth had 6 roads. I thought you might like to see the photos of the prototype. The kit should be on sale ...

Re: CRA Depot - PopUp

Brian, Jim, Thanks for the feedback. The layout looks terrific - I note the ventilator style on the model. I am struggling to get a generic look that will suit most modellers and allow them to use a base kit and alter to the era they are aiming for. I hope the kit can attract sales for PopUp and be ...

Re: CRA Depot - PopUp

I attach a render of the kit from my CAD model. Still a bit of work to do before it is ready to laser cut the prototype. However I should appreciate any comments or interest. For example would there be any interest in a kit of just the repair shed (with water tank). Let me know your thoughts. Thanks...

Hi, I have just completed a kit for a newsagent's kiosk (John Menzies!) as an OO Gauge kit that should shortly appear on the PopUp Designs web site. I attach a couple of photos for your interest. Shutters can be on or off at the side. The design is based on photos from Highland Region but I think th...

CRA Depot - PopUp

I noted in the latest The True Line the article on the part laser cut Ferryhill wagon shop. It may be of interest that I am currently working on a potential PopUp kit of the Grangemouth Depot (with some, as yet undecided, options). This will be the usual PopUp kit in 3mm Ply (OO Gauge) with the pote...

Re: Glasgow Tenement PopUp kit

Hi, I have had a look at your comments and think I can easily split the kit into a front and back - and also add the "cludgies" at the back (CAD Image attached). It would be helpful to know what interest there might be in these before I ask PopUp to commit to making more prototypes. Please...

Re: Glasgow Tenement PopUp kit

Hi, Interesting feedback. If you contact PopUp they may be able to do a 7mm version - albeit the fit ups will not be exact at the joints. (The wood available does not scale with the OO to O.) I'll give some thought to the outside toilets at the rear. Possibly as a separate kit with just with the bac...

Glasgow Tenement PopUp kit

I have been working on a kit of an OO Gauge West of Scotland tenement building. This should be available from PopUp Designs on their web site shortly. This is a basic 4-storey block (2 storeys can be omitted from the assemble for a 2-storey option). If this is of interest to city scape modellers I c...

Re: Locke and Errington Modle Kit

Hi,
I got most of the dimensions from The True Line drawings I found. I supplemented this with a site visit and a measuring tape. So all the sizes are pretty accurate. Thanks to the CRA for all the help. The kit should make up a good model of the station.

Re: PopUp model CR Signal Box (southern division type S4) kit, and model kits of Brechin Station

Alan,
That is helpful thanks. I had picked that up on Lochearnhead (I visited there). It had the header bricks after 5 rows of Stretch. I'll modify the CR Signal Image for a header after 3 rows.
I'm always grateful for helpful suggestions for kits.
Best regards

Re: PopUp model CR Signal Box (southern division type S4) kit, and model kits of Brechin Station

Hi, I designed this kit. The brick work is an image file. I would normally expect modellers to finish the model to their requirements. However I can readily update the image file to be more in keeping. The Lugton box image I was working to was unclear to the brick design. If some one would like to p...
