Owen

I think you can use both together. I plan to have Metcalfe buildings alongside this one. The main reason I built this house is because I could not find a low relief card or a plastic kit of one that would fit the bill.

The additional Wills windows and doors pack, which I ordered on line on Tuesday evening, arrived at lunch time today. :) Not only did they arrive in rapid time but they cost 40p less than my local model shop, even when postage and packing was added on. :shock: I also saved on 35 miles worth of fuel which I would have used for the round trip.

I like to support my local model shop, but how can they compete with service like that?

I'm afraid they can't Bob and customer loyalty to the local shop can only stretch so far, which is a pity but that's the commercial world as it is today.

It's certainly a problem for me, much as I like to try to support local shops. To spend £5 on petrol and between £1 and £4 on parking to go to my local stores makes £1.99p postage and packing on internet orders look very attractive. I've just ordered some more materials over the internet because my local shop was out of stock. Oh yes, they'll be getting some more in - but they can't say when.... :(

Same problem here I'm afraid, my "local" shopping has dropped by around 75% because "will be coming in soon" is not good enough.

A bit more progress. The 5th window has been installed, all the windows have been glazed and curtains added. I copied the method used in the Metcalfe buildings for curtains. I cut them out of paper, having coloured them and I used a piece of matchstick on each curtain as a spacer to give depth. I have also started to put in the interior walls. They are a bit rough and ready, but they will not be seen when the back wall is put in and they are painted in a dark colour. They will however prevent the building from looking hollow. Once again I used matchsticks to support and brace the inner walls:





I have also completed work on the roof. This consisted of adding chimney stacks and pots, putting in place the ridge tiles and the stonework on each edge of the roof:





The next step will be to paint the interior, fit the back wall and then paint the exterior.

It's surprising how much work is involved, even for 'half a house'.

This is coming along really well. :D

Nice work, Bob(K) - and I concur with all the sentiments about local versus internet shopping. My local model shop is 25 miles away, and carry only a limited stock. All they do is order from the suppliers anyway so it's faster and cheaper for me to do it myself. :D

over this weekend I installed the back of the building, painted the roof and chimney stacks and then weathered the whole building. I think the house is now completed, less the outside light and name board:




The next task is to tackle the front garden and railings and then add scenic work.
