Thanks, Bob. I think I'm making the right decision.
Carl, that's a sheet of blue foamcore I bought at Walmart several years ago strictly to use as a back drop.

Nice looking sound sound slats, Fred. Good solution to your bell problem.

Looks great so far Fred.
What is that "easy on the eyes" dark blue background? Is that a wall in your shop?

Fred, looks good to me. There are lots of old churches like that around here and it looks like
you are heading in the right direction.

Slow but steady progress.
I debated for a while on whether or not to detail the rear. But I went with it.
And as you can see I've started on the roof.
I had fully planned on leaving the top of the tower open and add a bell. Good and good sized bells are hard to find. I had one I'd planned on using but when I got to looking at it I felt it was just too big. I did find one (in a pack of 72} that was a good size. But in thinking about it, and researching more, it seems the open tower is atypical. So I'm closing it in, with sound slats, more typical.

Thanks, Bill and Mike!!
Chuck, glad you like the house.
Yeah, Frank, I think I'm mega'd out for a while.

I must confess this will make a terrific little build. Sort of a respite from you last few mega builds.

Terrell, I am just getting caught up with your last project and you have started another. The house is just fantastic.

Looks like a very cool project. I see some nice, modest country churches as I drive around West Virginia and intend to model one some day.

Terrell, Another terrific start. Saw lots of churches with similar architecture down South and you've already captured the feel.

Thanks, Bob. I hope so.
No, Carl, no real prototype, just a montage of a lot of country churches. I'm trying to keep it fairly simple.
||Posted - 02/15/2021 : 3:37:18 PM
Is there a prototype your following Fred?
||Posted - 02/15/2021 : 3:08:03 PM
Looks like another winner to me.

I've started a new project that has nothing to do with the Holt house or the White house, at least not directly. It will be a small southern country church.
Made following my usual MO, foamcore, cardstock and a dollop of basswood.
The center piece is the front wall of the bell tower/front foyer. The two "wings" are the side walls to the tower.
And I've cut out the two side walls.
I think it won't be long before I need a new cutting mat. That one's starting to show signs of wear and tear.

A little late to the closing ceremony but WOW.
At first glance I thought it was a real house. That's one beautiful looking model diorama.
