Started on Arlington Row today and this is as far as I've got - well actually a little further as the inner widow frames and windows are fitted but I've yet to photograph it.

At nearly 3' 6" long, it had to be split  into 4 sections to get it into the microwave.

Allan.

Hi Allan,

Nobody can ever accuse you of tiring easy. From one masterpiece to the next.

I'm eager to see what's emerging here.

Cheers

Toto

Er, good question Alan.

How about deleting the second one I put up then I can upload those pictures again but onto the original Thread?

Thanks.

Allan.

 Hi Sparky.I knew that, just testin'!

 

SWMBO must be a lucky SWMBO to have lived in such a beautiful part of the Cotswolds! Are the residents who live in Arlington Row the owners of the cottages or are they rented out by whoever - and what price to buy one if it were for sale?

 

Another thing Sparky, do you know why the roofes are so unusually high, a feature that I got drastically wrong on the model?

 

Allan

This is better Allan, on the one thread.  Lovely pictures.
  They were actually Alms houses , she did not live in one of those, but on a farm.
Moved to London when she was 16 . that,s when we met . We are 78 now.:roll:

Ah those high roof's.     I don,t think its to do with heavy rainfall or snow, they made a useful room on the upper level.
A few doors away on the opposite side of the road is the same sort of house build, now used  as a museum.  We have visited there and considering rooms were tiny in those days it added a quite large upper room .  probably /maybe,  easier and cheaper to build using timber and tiles ,than stonework?  I have to add i am not an expert on these things .

Ah then Reg, same age as me then but I moved OUT of London when I was 16 - at boarding school actually but lived in london before I went there and when I left school, Ma and Pa had gone!

So, Alms houses are they, and just what the missus figured - and building higher in timber rather than quarried stone makes sense.

Actually, this is my second shot at the 'Row' and I even got the roof wrong on that!!

Anyway, it should be finished next week then it's a freelance blacksmiths where I can pitch the roof at whatever I like !

Allan.

Great work and I'm loving it !

Got the started on the base today and here's the stream that runs eratically alongside Arlington Row and shown after it's first coat of stippled PVA and two, maybe three, more such coats should do it.

Anyway, here's a couple of shots along with one showing what can be done with PVA when modelling water.

Wonderful stuff Alan. I particularly like the way that you have modelled that modern housing estate in the background. :lol:
Let me see if I have got this right.  To model the water, you stipple on about three or four coats of PVA.  Does the colour go on next, followed by a coat of varnish?

Hi Terry.

Yes, three coats is what I normally apply but the colour is painted over the bed FIRST -dark greens and black - then  the glue, then a coat of clear varnish to finish.

BTW, the best PVA to use is EVO-STIK, it's not watered down like the cheaper brands and goes off a lot quicker.

Hope this helps.

Allan.

Thank you Alan.  Very informative.

It really is a great thing about our hobby how everyone is quite willing to share their expertise for the betterment of the hobby generally.

Stay tuned and I will explain how I built Waterloo Station from half a dozen lolly sticks! :lol:
