Never fear! Where's there's a will (and a laser cutter) there's a way!  ;)

Oh, I'm the last person to ever say it can't be done. But if the choice is between moderately difficult and eye-wateringly difficult, I'll take moderately every time and try to do it before I get the whole thing assembled! lol

I've learned my lesson! Well, till the next time anyway ;D

These are looking great...very impressed that you have access to frosted laser cut perspex...when the rest of us mortals (bar mr bibbly) have to make do with foam core and filler >:D


Looking forward to seeing how this progresses...

Do I detect a resurgence in all things Saxon,early medieval on these boards.?

Looking good. How did you get the layering on the roofing?

Both the houses and the church look very good.

Thank you for posting the work-in-progress shots.

Thanks guys.

How did you get the layering on the roofing?

Firstly the teddy bear fur used was cut into strips which was then overlaped on top of each other. Then as I was combing the fur (which had been covered in watered down PVA) I simply pushed the comb in and up a little at the points where it overlaps to accentuate it.

Cheers

Chris
