    • The balcony is now finished.

      As I'm using thin, 1mm balsa, for this roof area, I did full length rafters for support. to stop the roof sagging. These are leftover boards from my trawler builds.



      Roof is on and trial fit of the balcony front.

      This is Grandline bandstand lattice 3517.

      Two pieces trimmed to length and joined and a styrene strip across the top.



      Then more shingles.

      Painted some various browns to start with.



      Then all blended with various greys, and washes, and final dry brushing. Has blended in well with the other roof.


      Regards Rob

              • I like the randomness of the shingles on the balcony roof.

                I can smell the chowdah' now.

                  • Rob, the balcony looks wonderful!

                    As do the photos taken outdoors under natural light.

                    Makes the colours all come alive.

                      • Thanks Mike, George, Carl, Frank, Bruce, Greg & Ted.

                        I think I've replicated the original balcony really well.

                        And true, the outdoor shots do show off the detail much better.

                        • Now onto the next part that sticks out from the main structure. It's the lower left section.

                          I made up a couple of sides. All good.



                          Then made up some A frames for the roof part.

                          Trying to put it together, I found it to be very weak & fiddly to do. So scrapped these. They cant be seen anyhow.



                          So instead I'm putting in a flat ceiling of 5mm balsa.



                          And then some more 5mm balsa angled for a sub-roof.



                          To attach it to the wall, I did my upside down weatherboard trick again and added some 5mm balsa to that which will sit inside the roof apex, to support this section, as this bit hangs in the air until I can build some decking under it, as the bottom of the structure is on a split level wharf

                          Excuse me if I'm not explaining it to well, but you can reference the pics at the start of the thread.



                          And the roof is now on. I will add a fascia to the roof front and then rafter tails and shingles.

                              • Thanks Greg & Mike. Although this would look a good structure with just 4 flat walls, the additional protrusions really make it a standout.
