This is a slightly better photo.  Started to prepare it for painting and gable ends fitted and gutters in place

It measures 36 cm across, so quite a big build for me...

Looking good, what have you used for the gutters? Commercial or home made?

I can see you spent some hours producing that Ridge Michael and it was certainly worth it, did you have a topping out ceremony when you fitted it

Thank you Andy - these are old commercial ones which came with the original linka set, although I have made some which featured on the warehouse.

Hi Brian

It was quite therapeutic to be honest, something to do while watching a bit of TV.  No ceremony until the whole thing is finished!!

The main painting of the hotel is now complete.  I will let this cure for a day or two.  I know acrylics dry quickly, but I have found they need a good day or two to properly harden.  Sometimes more.

Then I will add the finishing touches - chimneys are made but need to be fixed, drainpipes, details on the doors, some weathering powders all over to pull things together....

It has taken quite a while to build, but mostly it has been a case of doing a little in the evening after I have finished schoolwork, so it's really been a case of how much time I have had available. And this is my third attempt at the hotel, so if you take that into account, it has taken me forever!  But this will be quite a feature at the east end of the layout (I keep calling it the south end in my head, but geographically it is east) so it is worth taking the time.  If I manage to improve my skills at all, I may look at it in a year or two's time and cringe and start again, but for now I am happy!

Here is the scenic board the hotel sits on.  There will be a terrace area from the door, which will disguise the gap between the building and the base board.  This will have a balustrade running around it, with steps down to the lawn and formal gardens in front of the hotel.  The raised terrace will have a wall around it at grass level to hide the foam board. To the right is the walled vegetable, fruit and herb garden - you can see where the plots have been prepared.  This will also have a shed or two and some greenhouses.  This will run down to the edge of the creek, perhaps with a small boathouse and jetty for the hotel visitors to enjoy a little boating fun.

Base colours are done, but I will be using a variety of scenic techniques to finish the gardens, static grass, flowers, vegetables etc.  I need to get back to casting some  linka for the walls!

I was going to mention chimneys, it looks a little odd without them. So glad you have them in hand. It looks fabulous so far and sits imposingly in its anticipated surroundings. Once you finish it off and weather it in I doubt that you will ever have second thoughts about the build, it really is very good.

Thank you very much Marty, very kind.  Hopefully no other buildings will take quite so long!

Thats stunning Michael. You have every right to feel very pleased with the end result. I doubt very much If you will change your opinion in the future.It will make a splendid and realistic focal point on your layout
Definitely merits one of Max’s elephant stamps if only I can find one:thumbs

Best wishes

Oh my!  What can I say? Two of the modellers who inspired me to get going and have a go at this modelling lark with such praise.  Thank you John!  The only downside is the TT is waiting to be fitted at the other end of the layout now!  I unpacked and tested it, then carefully put it away until I am ready.

Still a lot to be done on this scene, with the gardens and detailing. I'm going to try to put into practice what I have seen on your layout with the eye for detail and small cameo scenes to bring a model to life - we will see how I get on!

Regards

Michael

Well done Michael you have made a marvelous job of it, withought a doubt  certainly will be a focus point on the layout.

You should be admitted to the Master craftsmen of Linka moulds guild now.
