I have just got round to completing the last buildings for Ashwood Basin, they will soon be in place on the traverser board to conceal the exit from the senic section.

OK, some construction details. The shell of the main building consists of two identical casing made from a latex mould with a coat of Matt varnish then a stain made from dark earth, grey and NATO black acrylics. The sides are ply with brick plasticard glued on using an impact adhesive. Once painted and allowed to really dry the mortar is applied using DIY ready-mixed filler well rubbed in and then polished off, a process that takes seconds to do. The wooded planks are scale size Bass wood (Lime)prestained with dilute acrylics and glued in place with PVA. The roof is again ply with strips of Slater's tile plasticard applied.
The small structure is from a set of very old no longer available plaster castings of which only a 150 sets were produced world wide about 25 years ago.

The main building is based on Duncalfs Barn of 1684 a farm house in Stallings Lane on the edge of Kinver Forest and Ashwood Common. I don't think there is any photographic evidence, but it really did exist. Noah Hingleys is real enough though not in Stallings Lane.

Looking forward to seeing them on your layout Mike.
I suspect another official forum "NICE" will be forthcoming.
