[img]">In between carpet laying, mending burst pipes and spreading one and a half ton of rather 'mature' manure, I managed to scratch build a generic Welsh church (for a certain man of the cloth of this parish).
Poor picture below, taken in a hurry!

Looks as though you have opened the IMG tags but not closed them.

Your text should look like [img]link to the picture.jpg[ /url] (no gap in the last bracket though) with the tags only around the image address (URL) and nothing else.

Hi Barney.

I use cheap acrylics from Tesco/Wilkinsons/The Office etc. I avoid Daler Rowney and Windsor & Newton due to cost!

When dry I seal everything with a wash of dilute PVA.

HTH
Shaun.

It's been a while since I last posted - times been taken up on another forum...

Anyhow, here are three images of the latest scratch buildings. Two of them are going to be part of a diorama project.

(They may be familiar to some members...)

First up a cottage which I think figured in some earlier images:





Next a canal side warehouse - intention is to have rail facilities on one side, and the canal on the other:





And the last one is a pub and office building that will be going alongside the canal and warehouse. This is a still-in-progress image - more fettling to take place:




And there you have it.

Any comments and/or questions feel free to ask.

Shaun.
