Added the double ablutions as a basic interior as the building will have roof light windows, the idea being that you use one side while the other is rotting down :-)



The other single outhouse is now finished for the third cottage.

Tiling completed, needs weathering down now, although its not as red as the lighting in the photos makes it seem.












Next is flashing and then the porch.

Hi Andy. Very nice work. But I must have missed something? Why have the buildings got a blank base?Best wishes Kevin

Hi Kevin

The buildings all have a 30mm cellar base, some may have a lower one depending on the scenery level.

My baseboards are L girder and I only have track base where the rails are, all my scenery is on removable modules or scenic bases.

I make a small base for each building that the 30mm cellar slots into, this base is then installed in position on a larger scenery base or module, the height of the building base can be adjusted to suit the scenery levels, the scenic work can then be done around the base and the buildings slotted into the bases once that is finished, the actual buildings then look as though they are in the scenery not plonked on top.

You can either fix the buildings at the end or leave them removable from the scenic.

This is not my original idea, I borrowed it from how they work at the Pendon museum as its suits my baseboards and removable modules, its far easier to work on and detail a module on the bench rather than trying to reach over other stuff on the actual layout, so far working out fine.

I will post more pictures as I progress so that you can see the method if my description is not clear.

Hi Andy. Thank you for your reply. That is excellent and makes sense, one does see buildings that sit at a precarious angle as if there is a rockslide or as you say sit on top without foundations.  Best wishes Kevin

Flashing done, roof blended in using artists chalks and some basic weathering to the brickwork.




Porch finished, then gutters & downpipes, and I need to make the building base.



For Kevin, how the building bases work.

The first photo show the buildings and their bases separate.



The bases will be glued onto the scenic module, then the scenery is built up around them, and finally the buildings are inserted into the bases as below



The scenery module could be a large one, or a smaller one that is then added to a larger one in the same way that the building bases are added.

Construction of the scenic base started











Once fully covered with the thin white card, walls and fence positions will be marked out and made, then the whole lot will get a covering of scenic gloop (Filler, PVA, brown paint & Sawdust) ready for greenery, paths and roads etc.

The buildings will be removed from the base so they do not get damaged while doing the scenic.

It is very hard to believe that is a card model.  Can't wait to see the completed scene, I have a feeling I am going to wowed!

Regards

Depending on what's put into it, card can do amazing things

Scenic base now covered and given a coat of knotting solution to stiffen up the thin card, next I think will be a coat of earthy hue emulsion from a tester pot then glupe where needed to smooth over the card joins.

I have started making fences and walls, so they will need to be positioned before I start on greenery.

Interesting about the knotting solution - I hadn't heard of that.  Superglue has a similar effect on paper.  I have made tarpaulins from really thin paper (cigarette papers are ideal) brushed with cheap supergirl,  They get an almost platic quality.  Will have to try knotting!

It was Chubber (Doug) of this parish that put me onto the knotting solution as a alternative to schellac

Now had a quick coat of light earth colour, and fencing started.
