Here's a trio of scratchbuilt churches in O guage using traditional materials such as cardboard, plastic and Wills stone sheets - oh, and wall plugs !

Allan , I think it is fixed - remember to insert a blank line after each photo - hit enter/return.

I like the use of the wall plugs on the church, ingenious idea.

As usual Amazing! if I didn,t know I would think they were 12" to a foot, by the way I tried your technique of wood dye and oblique spraying of stone work the finish is brill` though you should have mentioned the wood dye softens the plastic-sticky finger marks, doh!:mutley.

Firstly Allan, great to see you posting again - I've really missed you. :thumbs

Secondly, although it's already been hinted at, it's extremely hard to believe these are models.  They look so real.  I'm absolutely sure that was the church I was christened in at the end of the war - unfortunately, my parents are no longer with us otherwise I'd get them to confirm it.

That fishing village scene is just wonderful.  Are they commissions or for your own layout ?

The churches were built after running out of ideas so if anyone wants an O guage church going cheap, please PM me.

Allan.
