This is my first attempt to publish using photobucket. A picture of a cottage, currently under construction. Made from foamboard - more to follow if this works :)

Definitely calls for a 'how to' Reg. Nice to see that you have got the photobucket thing worked out.

"The venerable Order Of Barchester Forum Scratchbuilders" :?:

As a Fifer, I have spent a fair bit of time taking runs to the many little fishing villages along the coast. Anstruther, Crail, St Monans, Pitenweem etc and I must say your model looks like it was lifted straight from any one of them, it really captures the feel of these places.

All you have to do now is shoehorn it in between a few more of the same, some low one storey cottages and a gnarly old pub that smells of stale IPA and fish, et voila! a fishing village (aka tourist trap) :lol:

Really very nice work.

Sorry to show my ignorance, Sparky, but what exactly is 'Roy Hickman's Method' ? I have to put my hands up to not knowing who Roy Hickman is. I've led a very sheltered life, you understand. :oops: :roll: :wink:

I've just 'Googled' him and it seems he gets invited to quite a few exhibitions to demonstrate making scenery etc, from household stuff. This link shows him at work at one of them:

Is that concentration, or is he always that happy :?:

If I could build models like him, good enough to be regularly demonstrating, you'd never be able to wipe the smug smile off my face :!: 8)

There's real character in your cottage, Reg. I think you've done a great job on it.
I'm looking forward to a how-to, because I'm planning to build my station building from foam board, and probably cover it with plastikard.

I'm excited about this one, Reg :!: A while back (Forum Mark II I think) we were treated to a vibrant discussion of foamboard as a modelling material and were shown a brilliant "How To" by a chap named Misha. (Misha come back to us please :!: ) Now you've re-ignited the subject we can move on - and I have foam board waiting in the wings to be used, in my case for low relief buildings.
