Thanks

I built the wills craftsman farm cottage a few years ago now. I might actually dig it out for this layout. What I did like about having to cut the supplied plasticard was the versatility to change things. Prototypical or not my somewhat OCD didnt like the A symmetrical roof that sloped on one end, so I simply changed a few pieces around and made it straight the full length. I do remember it taking some time though. Ill take some photos when I can find it.

Remarkable. To think only 36,000 years ago we were painting bison out of ochre in Spain.

Unfortunately, we'll do the same in a few years due to the global warming... :mrgreen:

Up early this morning... first weekend for a while without rain so lawns to mow...but before I got into that figured it was time to put a coat of primer on the terraced shops. Going out later to hopefully find red brick aerosol. If not ill be brushing.

Good looking layout, The shops/terrace, are excellent, but do look like a bushfire has raced through the area.

Yes I suppose it does a bit haha.

And thankyou Glencairn

After I got my mowing done Ive managed to go out with young william and buy some paint from a local hobby store. I hadnt been in there until today but was quite amazed at their range of model rail stock. I didnt expect they would have any.... a lot of hobby shops here in Australia dont cater for railway modelers. Any how so masked the shop fronts, red and brown tamiya aerosol applied and going through the process of adding plaster compound into the brick work. It will need toning down but its moving in the right direction i hope.

Much better than a bison picture.

Forget the mowing. Modelling comes first. :lol:
Love how it is coming together.
Well done.

Coming on nicely indeed. :)
I use a thin white/cream colour wash to fill in the motar courses.
One tip, I leave roofs removable so I can replace any ligthing that goes awry. :idea:

Thanks to everyone on the kind words. Positive reinforcement always helps keep you moving!

Buffymcbuffer, cheers, I restored the pickup (ute here in Aus :wink: ) a few years ago now. Ive lost count of how many hundreds of hours she owes me. Shes out the shed enjoying sunshine so I can replace the radiator in my daily driver in there haha.

Glencairn my problem was modellings came first for about the last 6 weeks and the yard was looking at home for a Rudyard Kipling novel. :lol:

Lee and Railwayjim thankyou. Hopefully I can finish the shops to the standard I hope for. A trained monkey could spray red on there and put some mortar lines in but weathering.... that's something else. I really enjoy the art in seeing guys on the forum paint and weather well.

End2end when I lasered the brick work I deliberately did it on a high power so a lot of those bricks are actually cut right through. The plaster is almost sitting in there like a proper mortar! I can do a lesser power cut and just mark the bricks into the wood surface but I wanted to play.
As for the roof thats a good idea. I want to get the outside of the shops done then carry on with the layout a bit then come back and finish off some interiors so a removable roof is a must I think!

Really impressive!! The advantage over card kits is that you could model these as semi derelict buildings awaiting demolition, something that was very common in the 1960s yet rarely modelled.
