Very nice. Are you going to be lighting the shop?

Looking good, Terry.

Shop interiors can be very time consuming and sadly 'lost' at anything over a few feet away, not to mention glass light deflection, so all I do - if indeed I do anything- is to download googled shop interiors then size them up in Serif then print them off wholesale. This also applies to shop names and. if you want, Terry, I can put up a few pics showing the results.

Thank you Peter, David and Allan.


David, no I won't be installing lighting.  Personally, I'm not a fan and those layouts which I have seen lighted generally have the lights far too bright.  They remind me of Santa's grotto!


Allan.  Yes please.  It would be nice to see some more of your work.


Regards,


Terry

 Here you are then, Terry, a take on the Tunbridge Wells Pantiles.

Not an exact copy of course,  just a reasonable representation worked up from photographs.

With you on the lighting Terry - almost always seems too bright to me as well. Saw one layout a few years ago (can't remember the name unfortunately) where I thought they'd got it right though - very subdued lighting, almost like gas light.

Look forward to seeing more of your work.

Regards,

David V.

Thanks David.


Allan, superb work as always.  I know the Pantiles and I think you have captured the flavour of it very well.

I'm becoming used to seeing your superb work, Allan.

But it still takes my breath away . . .  :cool:

 The rear door and step have now been attached...



The two sides of the roof have been glued in place.  Red Tiles TX41a from Scalescenes.

Wouldn't it be better if contibutors only posted links to their subjects in threads clearly intended to explore modelling in a certain style or fashion no matter how worthy the modelling involved?

Doug

Ps Terry Where's the roof?

Agree wholeheartedly with your comment Doug.
It's Terry's thread, and his building. (and a very good one, I might add)

Shaun.

I'm not sure what you are actually complaining about, guys; but it seems to me that Terry invited Allan to put up the photos?

To be honest I did ask Allan to post his pictures so any criticism of him is unfair.  However, I think Doug has a point as regards threads generally.  When a member posts pictures in someone else's thread without invitation, it can sometimes detract from the subject at hand and together with the ensuing replies, can lead the thread off topic.


Anyway, back to this topic.  Sorry Doug, I forgot to post a picture of the roof in place.  Weathering required.



I have a slight problem.  If you have the book 'Miniature Building Construction' please turn to the rear and have a look at the drawing of the village shop.  You will notice that just below the roof edge the eaves have an inverted castellated effect.  My question is this: is this part of the brickwork or is it the eaves, which would be wood?  Any ideas?

That's probably what they call 'dog tooth'  brickwork. It was just a fancy way of topping out a wall at the eaves for no other reason than aesthetics.

Thanks for that, Max.


You always get them - these complainers - and it makes you wonder if it's either a touch of the green eye, or simply that they've got nothing else better to do with their time.


Allan.

Ah, thanks for that Allan. I have just got to work out the best way of replicating it.

I gave some thought as to how to replicate the fancy brickwork under the eaves and decided that it could be achieved by gluing the appropriate brick or stucco paper to 1mm card, cutting a strip to the right depth and then cutting off small squares from the strip.  My trusty 'Chopper' came in handy to cut small squares all to the same size...



I used small card spacers to ensure the same space between each square of brick... 



Both sides of the building were quickly completed...



 



More soon.

A neat solution Terry - I'd have said a tad overscale if I were being hypercritical, but, if you're covering it with a gutter, it will do nicely thank you .......... :thumbs.
