Sorry about that, there should be quite a few more pictures but ever since I installed Adobe Reader, my computer has really been playing up.

I uninstalled it but it only made it worse, be warned, leave Adobe Reader well alone !!

Wonderful modelling as always Allan.   The moss on the roof is the icing on the cake.

They look brilliant as usual, must take you ages and you must have the patience of a saint (as the old saying goes).

This was done using a home made stone press embedded in to pyruma fire cement.

Once you have the press made, it only takes a few minutes to produce an entire wall.

Cheers.

Not a bad effort Mr Downes, really not too bad at all.  A little more practice and you might be able to make a living out of these things ..........:lol::lol::lol::lol:

Can you remember what you used for the barge boards in that lovely stone building in the 2nd shot Allan - it looks very "Stamford" like stone but the barge boards really do look like the grainy heavy weathered boards so common on such buildings. :thumbs:thumbs:thumbs

The sad looking barn roof is also a little masterpiece.  Is the barn walling Pyruma too ?

Sorry about the late reply Peter, computer problems !
The barge boards were nothing more high tec than being cut out of 40thou styrene - just draw the shape you want and away you go.
All the walling was Pyruma, even the roadways.
Anyway, more Pyruma cottages where the stonework was worked up using a guitar pic - these buildings appeared in the Constructor in ancient times !
Cheers..
Allan.
