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.
