1/72 Normandy chapel and barn - Finished

Thanks

Progress has taken a turn on this with the start of some new roofs!

I'm using smaller tiles and trying to make the more regular. I plan to paint the roofs brown (like in the photo at the top of this thread). This is very time consuming cutting and gluing the tiles but hopefully they will be finished in a day or so

Also I painted up some accessories for the buildings

I've slowed down a bit on this as it is summer here in NZ and actually nice and hot!

The roofs are finished and it took longer than hoped to cut up all the tiles!

You can also see the basing is done but more on that later.

I changed the style of the barn roof so it fits inside the stone walls now. There is still some work to do, to make it fit well

Onto the final steps of painting the roof and fixing up the barn a little.

Hi all

The chapel is completed with a new roof and the basing done. I'm very pleased with the new roof and it looks much more like the photo of the actual chapel I based it on.

I painted the roof various craft paint browns and gave it repeated drybrushes (perhaps too heavy but it stands out), and then glued some Woodlands Scenics burnt grass onto the roof to represent moss

The base was 3mm mdf and I added a couple of Renedra cross and one made from sprue. The broken wall is made from foamboard with the gate and railings from Gamecraft, and the post from a model railway shop.

More soon on the barn

Thanks for the feedback

And here's the finished Barn. With a gate from one of the model railway wall sets (it is actually a iron wall section).

With a finger for scale!

And it looks like I forgot to add something like a decal to the sign

I hope you enjoyed the thread. I have some old Airfix buildings to pimp next

The new style of roof with smaller tiles looks so much better. And the finished items fully painted are simply stunning! Wish I could paint buildings that well!
