you have a lot of challenges in your dio... plants, fence, building etc. It`s very interesting for me to follow your solutions, especially the buliding. Keep on working and have a lot of time and good ideas.
I like it very much.

Dunker church continued.

To represent the brickwork I use a thin covering of decorators caulk and then scribe the brickwork with a pin attached to an old paint brush.

This is a bit messy as the surplus when scribing must be removed. Also resist the temptation to dilute the caulk as all your hard work will run and spoil the brickwork.

I found that doing sections made the job easier but you must have a definitive line otherwise the ‘run’ will look odd.

Bild

I feel that the end result gives a pleasing old fashioned effect.

Bild

I was going to make the sash windows using balsa and painted bars on clear plastic until I discovered these laser cut windows.

Bild

Extremely good value and although fiddly are excellent for my purpose.

I have left the windows unglazed prior to painting.

Once positioned, the window sills and top windows, made from balsa.

I lined the door entrances with paper, glued and trimmed to size.

Bild

The elements are then positioned and glued to form the structure.

Bild

Filling, filing, trimming and tiling.

Lots to do!

Dunker church continued

I have continued by adding copper wire hinges to the top windows and balsa stonework for the stepped entrances. A balsa floor represents the wooden floor of the original and adds strength to the model.

There are no drain pipes on the building and the method of deflecting rainwater seems to be by way of three lengths of different bricks along the front and rear.

I used strips of three then two and finally one millimetre card glued together in order to create this effect before gluing in place.

The roof appears to be slate tiled and I have therefore made use of the Wills tiled roofing material available from good model shops.

Bild

Having cut these to size and faced them to the construction they were glued along the ridges line and held in place by sellotape.

Bild

I also constructed the chimney from balsa with a card surround. The chimney will be caulked to finish it off.

Two strips chopped from the plastic sheeting were cut and fitted to make the ridge tile. This will need caulking to finish.

The roof facing panels were constructed from one millimetre balsa and glued into position to be trimmed when dry.

Bild

For the doors which are recessed I cut a thin card outer door which was then glued to a one millimetre pieces of balsa.

Bild

Bild

The second door requires some trimming to match.

I intend to add the shutters post painting.

Following the trimming and caulking the painting can commence.

Dunker church

I have commenced the painting of the model starting with white brickwork and a slate roof.

This will need touching up before weathering can commence.

Bild

The doors on the present church are picked out in white.

Whilst the NPS is very good I am not sure that this is correct.

Der Feldmarshall has been investigating!

The Gardner pictures may be distorted if the doors were open but this view clearly does not show lighter, ie. white squares. It may be that this was taken later as the damage has been repaired but I personally think the Brethren would be fairly conservative.

Bild

I have used a small ball of greenstuff to make the handles as per the NPS renovation pictures.

For the shutters which like the doors are recessed I have used cut card pasted onto 1mm balsa. These are painted before facing to the windows.

Bild

Nearly there!
