  • Mark,
    Really nice work on the subassemblies! Like the mitered cuts on the cupola bases.
    The concrete sections are looking good.

        • Mark, good adaptation of the Tichy shutters for the cupolas. This is quite a factory shaping up.

            Thanks, Scott.

            I spent a bit of time yesterday getting the concrete work a bit further along. Practiced all sorts on the back wall that wont be seen. Lots of failures.

            Cheers, Mark.

              Its slowly getting there. The windows look way better after a dusting with white chalk.

              Cheers, Mark.

                Yep - its amazing how much time such little pieces take. But details make the difference.

                Cheers, Mark.

                  Thanks, Bill.

                  I first tried this idea on my cannery and really liked it. I usually use them vertically, but these ones fit perfectly horizontally for the dimensions of the copulas. I even bought a few packets of shutters with my last bulk order from Tichy for just such a thing. We don't get a lot of hurricanes in New Zealand and so shutters on windows are very rare.

                  Cheers, Mark.

                  • Looking fantastic Mark, I love following a scratchbuild and seeing the fine craftsmanship such as yours,
                    especially on the smaller things such as mitred joints and tight corners, it shows a real commitment to a great result which I appreciate.

                    Wonderful work.

                      Thanks so much, Karl. You are too kind!

                      I think I put that last comment in as unless you actually scratchbuild you don't really know how much extra work is involved. I do really enjoy that head work and building a one of a kind structure (although once again I find myself using a kit as a guide - all be it in a different scale to what I model - its just so darn cool!)

                      Yesterday was windy and warm for this time of year - I even got all the lawns mowed. The upshot is that the barn has warmed up significantly and so I've just been out and got into a bit more timberwork. Its all progress!

                      Cheers, Mark.

                      • Mark,

                        I like the combination of wood and concrete. I find it really hard to model concrete realistically.

                        The best part of building in sub-assemblies is assembling them into the finished product.

                          I find concrete hard to do on smooth surfaces. On plaster or spackle where there is some roughness to the surface things usually work out well. I thought about doing the interior from brick, but there is just so much fluffing about with taping and touchups to get a brick interior and concrete columns... I've got good results before - but it is a lot of work.

                          I'm looking forward to getting those subassemblies together.

                          Cheers, Mark.

                          • Hi guys.

                            Photo 1 - shows the first module I built for Shadowlands. This is the section I am building the ceiling for now. You can see I have the backdrop in place with three rows of dwangs for horizontal nailing. There is very little Clarence between the end stud of the wall and the layout backdrop around that corner. I glued and clamped 10mm pine in there to hold things together - that's all there is room for. Once the 3mm MDF is glued and nailed there it should be plenty strong enough.

                            Photo 2 - and here is the first of two ceiling pieces coming together. This piece will attach to the ceiling section around the corner and go about 2/3rds of the way along the backdrop I have in. Unfortunately the temperature has dropped considerably again, and isn't expected to make it into double digits for a week or more. I might not get much more done out there - its getting too cold!

                              And here it is glued, screwed and bolted in position. You can see I made up a timber scaffold for it. I was able to lift the ceiling section over my head, slide it on to the scaffold, and then I was hands free for fitting and later gluing and screwing. I had to cut 3mm out of one of the studs for one of the fins to fit. Something obviously went wrong with my measurements somewhere... I got the bulk down with my little skill saw and finished off with a hand saw. I also had to add a 3mm packed to the join. It was a very trick section to get right - so I'm not surprised there was a little 'doctoring' to be done. It was good to be able to get it all done on my own.

                              We went to Cust yesterday to pick up some roses for the rose garden. I spied this little beauty as we went past. Would look good in Tellynott...

                              • Seeing how your benchwork, backdrop and valence are built and installed is fascinating.
                                I'm guessing that's a bell tower?
