On Sunday, I rendered the outer walls and buildings with a thin layer of Coarse Sand texture paste. On Monday, I gave all surfaces a first coat of paint white gesso on the walls, dark brown on the roofs and light grey on the stonework.

The whole thing is starting to look quite good but there are a lot of details that need adding. I have spent about 12 hours building and painting the project so far.

Over the next week or two, I will work on doors, windows, roof woodwork etc and a simple interior for the church.

That is looking impressive.  The new windows worked a treat.

Great start! Looks very promising!

The roof is corrugated card left over from my Hue Citadel build.

Do you have a link where I can see this build?

I am going on holiday for 3 weeks  on Wednesday so have made a special effort to finish this before I go.

Here are the doors for the gatehouse. These are plasticard which has been scratched to create woodgrain.
They are mounted on a thin piece of XPS foam and they slot in behind the doorframe. This is easier than making opening doors.



I bought a pack of MDF crosses and a pack of round beads. The bead is drilled through and has a plasticard round rod on it.
The steeple has a matching plastic tube so that the cross is removable and turn-able. This is important because the crosses break easily.



You can see through the windows wo I made a very simple interior.



The whole thing was painted over the past week and submitted a few minutes ago.
