      • The lighting looks excellent. As I also doing leadlighting as a hobby, I know they always look best with light behind them.

        And these look brilliant. Using actual prints of real windows, sure does the trick.

        And we can see the bell lit up also now.

        You've surpassed yourself with this build Fred.

            • Holy moly!! Great job on the church, it's really beautiful! I love all the extra touches, such as the bulletin, the crawlspace door, and back stairs. And those stained glass windows look amazing!

              • Thanks, Rich, George, Bob, Rob, Ted, Mike and Ray!!

                I've been lax in posting, sorry,

                I've started my next project, don't ask why I'm doing this, I don't know. Something to do I guess. Instead of reaching for the heavens I'm going in the opposite direction.

                It's the mine, on the left, that I did in HO 10 or 12 years ago.



                There will likely be some changes along the way, particularly the terrain. As with the HO model the siding will be weathered and torn. Instead of covering the whole walls with boards I've cut away part of the wall, inserted a plug of basswood then covered it with boards. The boards are from the same wood I did the wood shingles on the Church.





                As you can see I've also started the small addition.



                The interior walls are also covered using the same wood, only I used the un-weathered side. I don't plan on this build being easily viewed from the rear so the rear facing walls are just painted with a wash of raw sienna.

                • You're off to a good start!

                  • Fred, another structure so soon. You are a busy man.

                    This should be interesting. And a lot more run down and weathered than your last lot of builds.

                    Looking forward to it.

                    Good start so far.

                    • The walls look fantastic! They are very realistic.

                      • The cutouts are a neat way to add the weathered boards under the tar paper siding!

                                Quick update...



                                The doors are not glued in place. I'm hoping to make the double doors operational. We'll see how that goes. And the upper sashes are in place on the small addition.
