Looks good, Kev.  :thumbs

Is that black pipe in the middle a sewer vent?

Nice work. You might want to re-visit the chimmney pots as to me at least they look a bit on the big side. I think you will find the real thing has 2 pots per chimmney stack, at least as far as I can see from Google street view.

Cheers
Dave

With the exception of the chimney pots and perhaps the flashing around the stack Kev, just pull me a pint please ..........:thumbs

The front looks great. :cheers  As I don't know the pub, I can't tell how accurate it is but it certainly looks like a pub. ;-)

I'd definately go for a pint in your pub.Don't worry too much about the size of the chimney pots,its easy to alter them.If the pots in the pub are that big,then I'm definately going in there for a drink!!

The architectural style and the colour used for painting the walls seems to be popular in the Black Country as I have seen several similar pubs especially around the Dudley and Stourbridge area . Maybe its a legacy from one of the bigger breweries in the area as Willenhall is not a million miles away.

I see what the others mean about the chimney pots - a bit less "40 gallon oil drum appearance" would make a terrific difference to the overall look.

 Its a great bit of modelling though.


What is the wording above the windows ? I cannot quite read it.

The wording is the Pub name, the Robin Hood.

Thanks - I assumed that is what it was but its either my eyesight or the way the light was reflecting off the screen but I just could not make it say "The Robin Hood".
