Taking Shape.

I have assembled my new project to give you all an idea of what its going to look like, there is still a long way to go yet even on the exterior decoration but as i wont be working on this now until the new year i thought id share some pics of how its going.


             I have yet to hinge the front doors and have only put them in place to see how they look.


                       The stand still needs paint and also inset panels adding more to follow on this.


Im now picking up on another project i started working on quite some time ago, this 1/24th scale timber framed building suffered from water damage so has taken a slightly different outlook to what i originally had planned.




Ive decided to put a bit more time into this and try and finish what i originally started this will be the first building i have done, every single piece of timber i have used is recycled and as you can see from the images because i decided to build it like a full size version its taking time to do.
Have a great week everyone. Tony.

  2. Hello tony,
    Those are amazing projects. The exterior of the first one is already incredibly beautiful... what exquisite detail. The second building is equally impressive, but so different in feel. I am always amazed by your talent and your versatility. I am glad you are posting again, you have been missed.
    Big hug

  3. Both projects are looking good. It's great to see your progress! :D
    1:24 is my favorite scale so I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with this build. Happy Holidays!

    1. Thank you Debora, i picked 1:24 because building the project in 1:12 would have consumed so much timber every single piece is reclaimed hardwood some of which is very old.

  4. Hi Tony! This project looks very elegant and luxurious. I will wait for the continuation. The house made of wood makes a terrific impression. I understand that this is a small scale, but it's super realism! Hugs, Julia

    1. Many thanks Julia, i have tried to keep the house as realistic as possible even though the scale is sometimes a little more difficult to work with.

  6. Hi Tony! It is great to see another glimpse of your stunning project with the inlay panels! The shape and colors are beautiful!
    Also it is wonderful to see you "rescuing" the little house you were building! So much work had already been done... it would be a shame to give up on it. It shows great potential for mini scenes! I look forward to seeing more on both projects! :)

    1. Thank you Betsy, i couldn't bring myself to throw away the little house, its always been a long passion of mine to construct a period timber framed house even if it is simple and basic, i will be a happy person once its complete.

    1. Thank you Josje, i too love the contrast between the green and white i did initially try using plain wood but it did not give a effect i was happy with which is why i choose the off white.
