Built in anticipation that a client of mine will want these for his coastal layout. Two typical B & B establishments with no smoking in rooms. No loose women. Doors locked at 10. Breakfas 6am - 6. 10am. Porridge extra. Pay in advance. Vacate room by 6. 15am.Don't like it ? Tough.

Cheers.

Allan.

... And you'Ve just knocked them up since Chritmas too I'll bet!

Mind you, with no loose women allowed that'll be the only knocking up being done I suppose :oops:

Delightful as always Allan.

Brilliant again Allan. They would not be out of place with the Tudor set you did a few weeks ago. Keep up the good work.

I'm so jealous I am going to put in a bit of gratuitous criticism here: Allan, you said this was in black and white, but it seems to me it's black and white in colour ... you lied to us!!!

:mrgreen:  :mrgreen:   :twisted:


As the others have said, these are absolutely superb, and I feel like I could open one of those doors and walk into a scene of genteel luxury, with salt air wafting past and mingling with the smell of tea and scones with cream.

Heavy sigh!

There is a very good reason they are black and white..., it's the colour that styrene sheet comes in ! :mutley

Seriously though, these are superb models. :thumbs

Allan, one thing I want to know, how you do the roof tiles ?? I really like the ruffed up effect on the tiles.

Cheers, Gary.

Later Gary I'll put up a step-by-step on roof tiling - if I can find it in my files !

Cheers.

Another Black and White themed hotel to add to the collection as a third is under way.


It usually takes about four days to build something like this as there's very little texturing to do - just black and white styrene and a bit of colouring with the roof tiles.

4! Did you say four... Days?
It would take me that long just to cut out the window glazing!

I guess if you were doing it for a living you would develop techniques to speed the process pretty quickly.
