Some progress on the roof. I found some old Precision Lasercraft (self-stick) shingles, light grey color.

They are pretty nice out of the bag, but I did some more drybrushing to lighten them a bit and highlight the edges


Then I cut the dormers, including a middle former/brace.

I continued the pattern of 'shiplap' on the front and clapboard on the back for the dormers. You can see where I nibbled out a hole in the middle former for the bracing I glued onto the (styrene) roof panels.

Finally, I started gluing on the roof panels.

I used tube glue to get good tack, and will let this side dry thoroughly before attaching the other roof panel. Then I'll add the eave trim.

I have some paint touch-up to do, but this is pretty much done.




The interior parts are Motrak Models chairs and tables, an old SS Ltd station bench, and a scratchbuilt Judge's Bench.

I'll try to take a photo of the lit interior later today or tomorrow.

So with just a few tiny spots left to touch up I'd say this turned out really well for a 'trial & error' build :)
The columns turned out well.

A photo is a good way to see where your paint needs more work!

Hi Dave. It's come up great. The fully detailed interior looks excellent.
Well done.

You can see bits of the interior, but it's hard to adjust the (phone) camera to get the lighting right.

There's a fair amount of light bleed through the styrene, but I don't think overall it's too offensive.
