After a major tidy up, and was it a major tidy up, found a heap of bits and pieces.
windows, down pipes, guttering, doors etc from kits long gone. (Dapol, Aifix etc)

Wanted to start populating the layout and the farm area looked a good place to start.

So got some ideas off my "google images" searching and built the following chook yard and green house.

Just used a few bits of "Evergreen Scale Model" Clap Board, match sticks and fly screen wire for the chook yard fence.
I did try to use an piece of netting cut out of an old sieve but found it was to soft and not rigid enough. So after some looking around the garage found a heap of Fly Screen and found it far superior.

The flyscreen was "super glued" to the match sticks prior to the fence being set in the base.

The Green House is made up of various sized windows, match sticks and some bits of different "Evergreen Scale Model" walkways for the base and stone walling for the sides.

New paint jobs are the order of the day once I get that far, but suitable for the moment.

Hi Alan,

Nice little projects for the farm yard. :thumbs  Now you have to build some racks in the green house for all those seedlings ! ;-);-)

A little tip for using fabric netting... Pull the fabric reasonably firm, or stretch it between two alligator clips, then paint it with a 50/50, water/PVA mix and let it set. Now you can cut it to any length without it ruffling up.

Cheers, Gary.
