Iíve not had too much hobby time this week so just a quick update on whatís planned for terrain.

Iíve started on the first four residences:



Derived from these:



Which forms part of a bigger hamlet:



The pub, additional Georgian houses and the Victorian terrace will be derived from the following:

Very nice!

Wonít their be a problem in the overhang of the middle building's roof with the one on the right? In the photo of the original the right hand buildings roof appears lower and at a slightly gentler pitch.

Thanks both  :)

Wonít their be a problem in the overhang of the middle building's roof with the one on the right? In the photo of the original the right hand buildings roof appears lower and at a slightly gentler pitch.

Thanks for the question.

The 1:1 buildings are connected together by way of overlap. I didnít get a photo of how the roofs actually abut though that doesnít really matter, as mine are on separate tiles for alternative layouts, so I need to have a practical but aesthetically pleasing compromise.



Iím envisioning  a much smaller overhang for the middle building that will hopefully fit into the gap between it and the right hand neighbour. The angle of the right hand roof is not set in stone: if necessary it can be cut back after the middle roof is fitted to arrive at what looks pleasing for the model.



If it doesnít work I might have to move a wall, which wouldnít be too much of a chore.

Obviously it would have been a lot easier if both had been on the same tile - they could then have cut into each other as per the 1:1 - but I wanted to stick with A4/A5 bases.

Iím glad you asked as it prompted me to articulate, which is always useful for the build process.  8)

Nice start to the terrain. Looking forward to seeing these come to life with your usual attention to detail.  :-* :-*

Iíve knocked together a few more shapes to create the footprint of the Dorking hamlet. The roofs are not at their final angle, as I will cut them back to what is aesthetically pleasing.









Plus the doors and windows, which are laser cut acrylic from Oshiro Model Terrain.



Iíve superglued the doors and windows to plasticard . Once Iíve offered them up to the various holes to test fit, Iíll texture spray the grey card before permanently installing them.

Looking good.  Are the houses made of mounting board card and if so don't you get any warping when you paint them or is there some magic that prevents that?

Thatís a very good question. Iím hoping that spraying with textured paint plus bracing and reinforcing will work. The buildings wonít be accessible so having a fixed roof atop each wall will help eliminate that flex point.

Looking good.

Sad to see the English Civil War disappearing fast in your ever-changing rear view mirror though ;) lol
