In the last year I built three of these but not sure whether or not that I've posted this one before because  I can't find it anywhere in my files ( in fact, I can't find anything in my files ) so, I took it out into the North East sunshine, plonked it   on a box that in turn was plonked on the hedge, set the Canon Powershot on automatic and let technology do the rest.
So, here's the pics and apologies if I have shown it before.

Amazing model of the castle Allan but I don't recall you asking permission to make a model of my house ............... :roll: :lol: :lol:

Is it of any particularl prototype ?

Love the pipes - they'd make an excellent diorama of dismantling an oil platform or ship breaker's yard.  :thumbs

Thanks, Peter, not a prototype of anything really. just something cooked up to appease my uncontrollable  imagination !


The pipes don't really belong on this thread and are all part of a micro layout that I'm currently building where the theme is wall-to-wall dereliction which I'd like to deal with in a new thread.

Absolutely magnificent, Allan.

I was going to say, "You've shown us the real thing, now show us photos of the model, please.", but I won't! 

:mutley   :mutley

:cheers

Dash it all you've done it again, in the sunlight it really does look real.  :cheers The moss on the roof is a nice touch.

Superb castle build Alan. What impresses me is that everything is squared off with no rough edges, even the small details are true. I was fooled by the first picture and only realised that this was not the prototype when I looked at the hedge in the background.

The trick is, Bob, is to start square and you'll end square. Any rough bits can always be hidden behind advanced bodging techniques - ie, filler and foliage !

Anyway, thanks for your kind comments, Bob. Always appreciated.

No prob, Phil. Believe it or not, I'd completely run out of Wills stone work then forgot all about it.

Anyway, how did you do it ?

Oh, and yes, it's 7mm and really heavy !

Allan
The area below the window on the left was selected to around the same size as the missed part, copied and pasted over the missed part, it was then reversed so that the stonework run in the right direction. It was then just the case of cutting around it to fit, then darkening and editing the colours to match.
