Eric,

This is an interesting project. And no doubt it will be interesting to watch.
I have some of the Monster Modelworks brick sheets and I like the way you
utilized them as brick over brick to achieve the desired effect. Nice job
on the bay windows too.

Hey rich, thank for your comment.
the MMW brick sheet are really great stock, and I think with a little effort we can have great result… just give it a try :)

Hello Everybody,
this week, i've made some progress on this project.
First, I've finish to assemble the brick part of the front of the building. We can see some light difference between the original building and my own. But I think the spirit of the building is here.

Then I've paint the wall. I,ve found that the color the most closer than the original is the «Italian Sage» color from FOlkart

Then I've build the cornice, once again some difference between the original and the model. But I think it look good. I've higligthed the wall color by dry brushing it with vintage white color.

Finally I've glue the window bay in place after doing some slight modification (specially the middle cornice, that I've found a lit bit too «fat» last week). And finally test the fitting of the roof on the baywindow.


That's all for this week.
Stay tuned … to be continued next week.Eric

Eric,

The building front is amazing my friend. It really looks like a resin kit. Very well done for sure.

Tremendous work, Eric.

Funny - I just used Italian sage on my last build.

Cheers, Mark.

Hello Eric, I like the bay window even more now that it's been attached to the wall. Can't wait to see how your build comes out, it looks great so far.   Jeff
