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.

Roofs are pretty much done (sans chimneys and ridges). Quoins and tender to go on the main hall then this bit can be painted. Windows will be added to the inside afterwards.

After that it’ll be onto the walls, gatehouse and stable block. The. The ground work.

Great work Jim

Very nice James

I like how you’ve got the main elements of the original sketch onto a smaller footprint without it looking cramped while retaining the overall vision. That can be difficult to achieve.  8) :-*

Thanks  :)

Started work on the outer walls. Still needs a bit of filling and fiddling though. I’ll make a start on the gatehouse tomorrow.

all looks very good except perhaps the support pillars inside the walls rather than outside but you probably have your reasons for that

I've seen a few that have them on the inside but also my thought was that the builders were going to make it higher with the inclusion of a stables/shed but the money ran out and so the owner had to settle for a short wall with a couple of protrusions  lol

Nice section of wall. Is the core resin or foam?

Internal buttresses would make sense as counterforts to support against lateral force exerted from the outside of the wall.

Sorry Gary, missed this. It's foamcore for this one but the next might be foamex (high impact density polystyrene I think).
