I thought that I might make another small model so decided on the Boilerhouse ( TO25).  Although this looks like a simple building with chimney attached, it proved to be a challenge.  I encountered a problem with the 'corner caps', the pieces which cover the four building corners.  You are supposed to scribe and bend each corner cap, but I always find that when using medium, or 1mm card, as advised in the instructions, it is impossible to produce sharp corners by scribing and bending.  It may be because I am using 1mm Greyboard and possibly a better quality card may give better results.  In the end I made each corner cap in two pieces which resulted in nice sharp corners.

The six-sided chimney base looked daunting but proved fairly easy to construct.  The eight-sided chimney proved a challenge, and once again, better quality card may be the answer to a better finish.  I wasn't looking forward to applying the brick surface to the chimney, but following John Wiffen's instructions to apply adhesive to two sides at a time, it turned out to be fairly straightforward. 

Here's the result...

Looks like you've made a good fist of it, Terry.

How tall is it?

Thanks Max.  It's about ten inches (253mm) tall.  I have just found on Ebay, a source of greyboard which has a nice smooth surface on both sides.  This might give sharper edges when it is scribed and folded.
