One more hole to fill.
This is a tapering footplate so the buildings will have to be low relief-or half a house.
As is usual, card is my prefered modelling medium and the majority of structures are made of this medium.
First job is to markout the front of the building- in this case it will be a shop with bay windows and a small forecourt. Well that's the plan anyway.
Once marked out then the windows and doors are cut out. The corners have a 45degree chamfer to hopefully let the corners be square!
The back is a simple job of measuring and cutting- only the chimneys to remember.
Then stick the back together- the front will be easier to work on 'flat'.
The bays will be assembled separately and then added to the shop front when completed.
The other decision is what finish? Brick or rendered?
I think I have enough 'Builder Plus' brickpaper to complete the row so assuming that these buildings were erected at the same time as the row of cottages they should blend in.
