As the Inn build continues, here is the flickering fire I have added.
viewtopic.php?f=5&t=54542
I may add more LED's to make a flickering fire upstairs too. This will be reflected by the graduated width of the chimney stack at the end of the building to encompass both fireplaces.
Sort of like this..

Hello End2
That stack would be an interesting build a lot of different planes. I think I would have to mock a card one up first to get a feel for it and then break it down into its component pieces.

The photo of the chimney is most evocative. I am having some trouble, upon close inspection, determining if it is a
model of a graduated chimney, or a prototype reference photograph? There is such an intimate variation of
colors, washes, moss, cracks, tints that I am inclined to believe this is a prototype photograph? I read back through
the text and could not locate a specific reference to it being prototype or modeled.

Brilliant fire effect. One assumes that the "fuel" would most certainly be coal, and you have put the most exquisite
level of thought how to capture a coal, as opposed to wood, which would long be historical. I looked through the
various links, but could not find the actual photo or video of this extraordinary creation, only found the detailed
schematics, I fear.
I don't care what they say. I believe in Nessie.

The photo of the chimney is actually a photo I took myself Chops. I think it was in Mayfield, Kent.
A lovely old town with a plethora of beautiful and interesting (architechturally) buildings made of stone and wood.

I am thinking of using a thick piece of balsa wood shaped to the correct graduating width then cover it in brick plasticard.
Simple and easy to build, rather than a hollow card former.

I am not a youtube poster so I had to upload the short video I took of the fickering fire for you to download and watch. - https://tinyurl.com/FlickeringFire

Thanks to Bufferstop for the offer of the potential barmaid figure.
Here she is repainted although looking a bit rough this close up! :lol:

Some more work done on the Inn today.....
I've added the mirror sheet behind the bar, the window glazing including a couple of stained glass windows and I'm now painting the bar pumps from the Busch 7783 beer mugs set.

This is starting to look like a .....

That left arm is just at the right angle to hold a pint tankard by its handle, a bit of plastic spree about 1.5mm diameter X 2mm tall should be a near enough representation.

I glued one of the clear beer glasses from the Busch set to her hand as if she's just picked up an empty glass from the table and is chatting with the drinkers before picking up the next empty glass on the table.
Here's some updated pictures of the inn so far.

The main building's lower floor / bar. I still need to add a suitable landlord with sleeves rolled up and more customers.

The other side lower floor. I can't remember where I got the set of 2 different sized barrels from but the bin and the metal beer kegs are Bachmann and the trunk is from a Modelscene set. The stained glass windows are from scalescenery's ebay page or https://www.scalemodelscenery.co.uk/ .

For both sets of stairs, I measured the angle of my home stairs using a protractor at 50 degrees but this was too shallow so ended up making both the staircases 40 degrees.
I marked and cut out a triangle with the correct angle on paper, glued it to balsa wood with pritt stick and then used that as a template to cut them, removing the paper template afterwards.
I used a flat file to file the treads then painted both staircases brown.
Thanks

Yep. How difficult to see in will it be when the roof is on?
