A journey to the Empire - Building 3

And so the slog of refurbishment continues :-)

Quite a simple one this as most of it was already done, just the base, tower roof and details. I also touched in some of the tiles with different tones to get it looking like the others and less regular.

Below are a couple of shots before...



And here are the finished ones. I did have a bit of a brain fart with the tower but after a while it came to me and turned out fine.












And then we have a couple of shots of everything so far (only three but it's getting there lol).

  1. So incredibly fantastic. They look perfect, they have that fantasy vibe yet look credible. I'm amazed.

      I hope to get the rest done before the end of the year I think there's about 12 of them) then it'll be onto the city/town walls.

    1. Thanks Paul :-)

      Difficult to sat as they were all originally started years ago and have had various bits done to them over time. I'd like to say a few weeks but Iould be wrong.

      cheers

  3. Utterly gorgeous as usual. The variation in colours on the roof tiles really adds something.

      No, the originals were from cereal packet card but the additions are from 1.5mm thick mounting card. Even with the balsa structure they are relatively flimsy and have had several internal supports glued in.
