Continuing.........

A little bit of railing is added to the stairs - another little gem found in my "dntaa" box.

Continuing...............

I have stained the walls by sponging on a little biege colour. I will add other colours as the mood strikes me.

I used gravel on the roof and added lead chutes to the upper walls to aid drainage of water from the flat roof.

Here are the final pictures of this structure.

I have added colour to the walls by sponging and dry brushing.

The final touch was a little Victorian wall gas lamp LED to illuminate the stairs.

Thanks Jeff and Jan I really enjoyed this build. My first with DAS clay. The model weighs less than 6 ozs so it is perfect for an exhibition layout when weight is important.

I was inspired by an article in a British mag - "Model Rail" by a real veteran modeller and railway expert Chris Leigh.

Thanks Jim and Greg. The little lamp tripled the cost of the castle which was running at $2 before the upgrade. But as you know Greg land costs much more than the structure on it.
