Thanks for the positive comments everyone.

they did come out quite well considering not a single drawing was done designing them the upper 4 paned window frames i made up myself from some thin plasticard they came out better than i expected the lead flashing around the chimney breasts i used some baco foil to do that.

While making these i did have to keep reminding myself that the nearest anybody will get to these with their eyes is about 3 feet because it is easy to get carried away with things and start doing a large amount extra work that would be wasted time.

The curtains are purely cut pieces of coloured printer paper stuck in position with a bit of Bostik.

cheers Brian

Thats good advice Brian

I too have considered that when working on my staff building.  But at the same time dont forget that you might want to take pictures from other angles than normal so you dont want to make those shots non-starters.  Its the main reason I model tha back of things that the public will never see, the other one being that I like it!

Cheers

Jim

PS - cottages look great BTW

Could easily be Trelowarren Street Brian - except that the roof is too neat for Camborne!  Very impressive looking though.

Perhaps needs a 1:76 rendition of a red shop front, Chris :mutley But agreed a very appropriate row of cottages if uncommonly tidy!

Very nice job there Brian. I model all sides because someday I might just want to move them around on my layout, and like others here, I just like to do it!
