Cheers matey!

So, the TBM church, based on the Church at Foy in the Ardennes I believe, has been sitting unpainted for a while as I wasn’t struck on it.  My perception of an old Norman church in England meant I was struggling to see the attraction of it with its peculiarly shaped steeple.

However, despite my reservations painting buildings, I enjoyed this one and it has grown on me.  I’m particularly chuffed with my attempt at lead flashing! Lol

I still need to paint the interior, but I have added a little climber to it.










The original I think.

I think this might be your nicest building you've done so far

Heh heh!


They based their model on the refit!    The stucco walls on the sides clearly cover up the replacement brickwork!

Great work on that church. I’ve painted one of those myself but I’m going to have to have another look at it, seeing your lovely work on the roof in particular.

Oddly enough I think it's actually glazed in the bw photo.
Your right the model Has more than a little artistic license since the damage location isn't consistent with the period photo.Even allowing for the spire.
