 I needed a barn for the small farmyard being created on my home layout.   On consulting Miniature Building Construction, I found on page 67 a very nice drawing.  Out came the card and here is the result.  The roof presented one or two problems but we got there in the end.  I decided to use Scalescenes 'Plain Clapboard' instead of scribing the planks.  I must say that I am quite pleased with the look of the walls.  The Scalescenes printed sheets were sprayed with matt varnish which allowed me to weather using watercolour paints without the fear of the ink running.  Here are a couple of photos, one before weathering and one of the finished article...

Nice Job Terry, the roof must have been challenging?

 Brilliant Terry.
Although a Scalescenes addict/enthusiast I have never been entirely convinced by his printed woodwork. Your weathering has made me think again

Regards

John

Great work Terry !  It amazes me the results you guys get using Plans from John Ahern from what, the thirties ? He built masterpieces long before we had these printed papers that are available today, with stunning results
I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with next ! Keep up the good work   :thumbs

Cheers

Matt
