Lovely attention to detail Doug.
Fabulous door, wooden beam lintel over the downstairs window, tiny glazing bars in the upstairs window, outward sloping stones on the bottom course, recessed window frame on the lean to, interesting chimney.... it just goes on. Characterful and masterful.

A quartet of posed up pictures to see how its coming on, building to be bedded down, matting spray needed, some more 'gardening' and some clutter/woodpile perhaps, driveway to gravel and grass. I have bent over the roadside fence a little, it all looked a bit too straight.

I'm going to get at it with some static grass, hopefully, then move on to the retaining wall where the big white bit is, and build up some fencing/stone walls along the road.




I noticed the evening sunlight effect on my neighbours trees, so I've had a go with a piece of mirror, reflecting the sunlight from the skylight, I quite like it but it is a bit over exposed.although it dhows up the roses.









Hope you haven't fallen asleep,

Keep safe, poop-poop!

Doug

A brilliant job and a lesson not only in modelling but also placement and design.  The disappearing road is just perfect and the cottage looks like it has always been there.  I love the little details too, like the stones and pump.  Lovely modelling.

Superb modelling. I can still remember scenes like that from my childhood. No I wasn't around in the 30's, but in those days the scenery and cars etc didn't change too much. You've got the balance between the layout scenery and the back scene just right.

Michael says it all! You have managed to make the road 'disappear' quite convincing.

Hi Doug,
 
It’s not a case of just getting there, more that you have arrived and been resident for some considerable time.
 
Wishing you continued happy modelling and with many thanks for your inspiration and showing us what we never thought possible.
 
Very best.
 
Bill

Thats exquisite Doug .....Michael has said it all.

I must confess I quite liked the Mark 1 model, before it failed the stamp test but this is a quantum leap :thumbs

Gentlemen,

Thank you for your generous appreciation, despite having just given myself a very short haircut with the Bisto clippers I shall soon have to get a bigger cap!!

Superb stuff Doug. Really classic Chubber work (I was going to say Wow! but I refuse to use the word.)
Wow! anyway.
