I'd like to post something a bit more complete in terms of a finished model, but it's been such slow progress as of late, what with painting disasters and such like, so I thought I'd show you a Champagne moment - I've finished tiling the roof!
All the ridge tiles are on, as per my previous explanation, involving cutting 4mm strips of 10 thou, scoring and folding in half, then gluing microstrip on at intervals. Flashing was added to the base of all the chimney stacks, before a Midnight session of Primer spraying in the garage just before bed last night.. "Cough Cough, oops - should have worn a mask..."
Now I'm torn between starting the painting proper in earnest, or adding the chimney pots first, to get everything painted at the same time. I think I'm tending towards adding the pots last, as there's less chance of them getting knocked off, and it should be easy enough to patch in the painting. I absolutely cannot wait to get painting again now - the left bay roof went really well, so I'll be employing the same colouring there and then going for the stonework!
|having had to take out the windows, meant also removing the floors from the second level, but what it has given me is opportunity to srpay the interior grey.|
