This is an old stone building 5 minutes walk from my place of work:




This is my model version (not quite finished yet) :

I find that quite remarkable Stu. In fact I had to keep scrolling between the two to check different points. I have cropped the picture shown below and if I was posting this for my own I could say here is a photograph of an old building near me that might make a good model and I think it would be accepted as such.. Excellent stuff.

Bob's right, Stu.  Very impressive.  :thumbs    I was rolling up and down a few times before I realised that the second one was your model.

I liked the cropping, Bob.  Now that's done it's even harder to spot it for a model.

Tremendous in every respect, in fact the more I look at it the more impressed I am.

Thank you one and all for your very kind comments. Bob's cropping has improved the similarity level, perhaps something I need to consider more.
There are still some little touches to add, the gutters and drain pipes, the rollers above the main doors and there is more ground work needed.

Very nice model, well done.

 I too scrolled up/down to check difference.

 Cheers

Did you measure up carefully and then draw scale plans, or was it all done 'by eye'? It looks pretty accurate to me, so I'm guessing it was the former.

Nice work! :doublethumb

Only one word - fanbloodytastic
 Your in a class of your own - such eye for detail and the patience you must have - even in my dreams the detailing would not be that good :doublethumb

Any chance of a 'how to' Stu if you have the time. It would make a good December project for example. No pressure of course.

Stroll on Stubby - absolutely knock out!  Just park a Greyhound in front.  How about a 'how I did it thread'? Well done.  Mal :Happy

Again, thanks for all the comments :oops:

I'd be delighted to, but for this particular building I didn't take many construction photos.  However, I have another little building in mind which I have been meaning to model for some time, so would be delighted to build that and explain my methods at the same time.

I have to admit it was the latter... I'd paced the building's end wall and estimated about 36 ft, but a quick check using Google Earth gave me dimensions of 32ft x 68ft.

I made the end wall first, simply cladding a piece of card in some Scalescenes course stonework paper. I used Scalescenes window arches (cut in half around the curve) for the three blocked in openings and some wooden coffee stirrers for the lintels and the three pieces of metal within the arches . The window frames are pieces of 1.5mm mount card with a slightly smaller aperture and a pencil line drawn to imitate the frame. The cross members of the window are thin strips of Slater's plasticard. I overlaid the main stone wall sheets with small pieces from the painted brick sheets, trying to place them in the correct position.

The main side wall was actually done quite badly wrong - I made it far too short ! I guestimated the size of the main door, then marked out and cut the windows and doors, judging by eye from each end inwards. I then realised that the large expanse of wall with the ivy was far too short, so I cut the wall and inserted an extra 30mm. The central doorway had three layers of mount card laid behind to give the depth required. 

The main door is a piece of thin cardboard, scribed to represent the planking, then painted with thin acrylics to sort of match the prototype. Again, I judged this all wrong and painted the blue are far too high. A quick bit of scraping of the cardboard and a a repaint improved things. The wooden plank that serves as the support for the door roller is another piece of cardboard, with the lower edge coloured a bit darker. The central door is more scribed cardboard and thin acrylic paint. The hinges are propriatory ones I picked up in a bag of bits at a local exhibition.

The windows on the is wall were made the same as before, just strips of plasticard glued together. The wood effect behind the right hand window is actually a cut out from a photo of the real thing, the other blanking pieces are more Scalescenes (concrete from the Harbour wall kit).

The roof is more Scalescenes, the main part printed in colour and the left hand end printed on a non-colour printer.

The greenery is mainly from a starter kit from International Models - various grasses and ivy stuck on small lumps of foam board.

Overall I used large photos of the actual building as a guide (with Jim S-W's phrase ringing in my ears - "model what you see") and just tried to replicate what was in front of me.

That's it, really. Thanks must go to JW for the printed paper and Doug for his previous master classes on using card & paper.

Stu

 

PS - The other big mistake is that the real building has only one gable wall, the other end is a hipped roof - mine has two gables...

I'm trying to improve all the time.  I look at Doug's 'Bear End' and Perry's masterpieces in plasticard and think - "I could do that if I applied myself".

I'd say this was probably one of my best, but I want to get better.
