That's some great architectural modelling. Looking forward to seeing it all completed.

Re: Shed Doors fabricated

Thanks glencairn - PM responded to.

viewtopic.php?f=49&t=51636&p=700881#p700881 covers the fabrication of the shed doors.

I'm currently working on painting the shed roof, with a first ever foray into dry-brushing - certainly enlightening.

A small update is now at: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=51636&p=701201#p701201

Also I finally got round my problems in obtaining suitable diameter Evergreen rods in Ireland by using copper-cored wire, and am pleased it kept reasonably straight. Here it is as the one (central, and therefore a more substantial diameter than 1mm) downpipe, together with yet another butchered lamp. The rectangular board to the right of the lamp was some sort of notice, it has 6 lines of writing but I’ve been unable to magnify a photo sufficiently to show what it actually says. Very frustrating!

Have you never finished that yet? (Says the man who has not yet started anything :D )

Seriously Ex-Pat - looking good!

Re: Painting Shed Roof

Thanks Jim – looking forward to your start!

And so, on to painting the roof.

I have no colour photo of Hawick’s shed roof and could only go by this photo of a goods shed at Perth, and which brings out the individual corrugated sheeting strips very well, with renewals/repairs over the years being quite apparent.

My initial attempt is here for comparison purposes, but I wasn’t too happy with it, feeling it wasn’t dark enough.


My further trials and tribulations are covered in my Workbench thread at: viewtopic.php?f=49&t=51636&p=701273#p701273
