Bit cold here lately and finding it a pity to heat the entire workshop (250M2)to do some modeling I decided to work a bit on the modules at my attic. Still laying shakes but the hard parts are done..





Think I like the shingles with rolled roof next to it. In drying times I added a few braces and other stuff to the car/footbridge connecting Nolans Wharf with the mainland...







Some tiny stuff and NBW's to be added and I can glue the bugger in place..:glad:

Almost done with this tiny brown building, added a chimney too....







So much fun this handlaying that I decided to give Geezers joint the same treatment. Added a few cornerposts and trims first...

Just a colortest on the last building. Couldn't decide between a light blue or a plale faded yellow. So I did the color square test and went for the pale yellow. Looks a bit off white after sanding the boards lightly...







Maybe I should add some dashes off yellow on it...
