Hi everyone ive been so busy over the past couple of weeks that ive had little or no time to sit down at home and update my journal, im now in a position to put my feet up for a while and enojy a coffea and relax a little.
As i mentioned in my previous post i have started doing some more work on my Cobblers shop, after chatting to other family members who remember more about the interior of this shop than i do i thought it nessasary to get the right finish,so took the decision to start again this was by no means easy as the two walls i had built had taken a considerable amount of time but i feel a lot happier for taking the decision and getting it right so in the past couple of weeks i have managed to reconstruct the walls and staircase and also most of the ceiling joists and beams all in oak, the floor is still the same. I have no doubts its not going to be easy to complete this build as i imagine other things will change as i progress, I do appologise for not posting any new images, hopefully these will be available at the weekend.
At the moment i am trying my hand at creating some mininature shoe boxes if anyone knows how to make these in 1/24th scale id be more than happy for any tips advice, also shoes and boots, is it possible to make/buy early victorian boots or shoes or does anyone know how to recreate them in this scale, again id be more than happy for any tips or suggestions, im delving into areas now i know nothing about and even though its my first build i dont just want the building itself to look right but also the contents too even down to the smallest details.Stay tuned for a further update with pics at the weekend.
Have a great week everyone Tony.
