MDF is like 3d sculpture For miniature it has no soul  lol

 lol You're a naughty boy  lol

Got started on some of the larger details. Stonework for the timber section and started on the timber itself. None of it is properly painted yet. I'm drawing some of the stone windows to be printed (more on which later).





cheers

Thanks chaps  :)

Gonna print, distress then cast the stone windows for the stone area. The advantage being (apart from overall speed) is that the drawing can be altered to allow for less or more bays or even be scaled to a different size. It's 30mm long, 20mm high and 5mm deep. The mortar joints seem big but they re only 0.5mm wide so we'll see when it gets printed.

I like your use of the printed components, printing, distressing then casting should give you a good visual consistency without looking too 'manufactured', if that makes sense.

It does make sense and hopefully it'll work  lol

Nearly finished with the timber work on the house and the window is printed and temporarily in-situ (it'll be moulded tomorrow and casts made from it along with some smaller versions).

That looks good, very good. The mullions would be a bugger otherwise.

What are you using for the stonework?
It looks like some kind of embossed plasticard or something.
If so then it's a particularly nice one - which is it?

The lower right stone looks like Wills. Not sure about the white one.

The light brown one is from EMA and the white one is from a small model shop in Japan. Haven't seen it elsewhere but I haven't really looked for it.

That EMA stuff looks very nice. I have some O scale Plastruct stone pattern sheet styrene and I don't think it is as nice.
