  9. Brilliant! So much well observed Detail (For example, I can´t recall any model Building having wall bracing on it!!) and the damaged parts are the most believable/realistic I´ve seen on Models. Well done!

  12. Superb attention to detail and a great eye for colour and the finishing touches. To think it has all been scratch built as well.

    If you were able to make moulds for these and go into production, they would be a big seller.

    Happy New Year to you John.

  14. Amazing!!!
    They are more than excellent.
    I think I'll build a greenhouse with all the glass missing for my first attempt, then perhaps a dog kennel.

  17. Excellent work, John. How many hours do you reckon it took for a complete building, eg the church or chateau?

    And just how do you integrate the perspex floors? Are they removable like normal, or are they glued in?

    1. Thanks nitpickergeneral sorry for late reply, Blogger does not notify me if I have a new comment on the blog.
      I am not sure how long each building took as I usually work on a number of terrain projects simultaneously but the larger building do take a bit of time.
      Yes the perspex is glued in place to the upper storey of the building.

  18. Amazing stuff John, great work. I just have a question on the buildings. How did you find measurements and dimensions? I’ve been through about four buildings just trying to get that perfect scaling down but I haven’t been able to crack the code yet. Any tips?
