Not bluddy likely - the paper I use is too thick for that.

Beta version of tent C, all four varieties:

And the three models together:

Image

Next step: put together some sets that will still fit on two sheets of paper.

Been busy building tents for the ad pics.

Here is the complete green set in Wodan's own scale, 1:72.

Image

In 1:58 the set has only one large tent, and fewer small ones.

In 1:100 there are more small tents.

The above set costs a whopping €1,00 - for €0,50 extra there is a extension pack of small tents:

Image

Still busy putting together the white sets.

And the same, but white.

This was fun, and I can use then myself, which is a great motivator, but now I'm going back to model railroad buildings, gotto make some money once in a while.

As threathened yesterday - yes, I'm on a roll, don't worry, it won't last - a new model railroad building.

This country is dotted with ugly concrete buildings, from small garden sheds to warehouses.

This garage is a nice example of such a construction, the model is based on a builder's drawing.

Image

When printing it I found there's space left on the sheet, not enough for a second garage but plenty for a garden shed, so the customers will get a freeby - that is, after I made it, probably/possibly tomorrow.

This material is also used for fences, and since our "wooden" ones sell good I might also make a concrete set.

Eventually.

This country is also dotted with similarly ugly concrete boxes. Does yours include real asbestos, just like ours?

Absolutely, but it will have to be removed within a few years.

The garden shed, which fits in the empty corner of the sheet.

Similarity is no coincidence, based on a drawing from the same builder.

Finished the garage and the shed.

Image

Since I was busy anyhow I also did a matching set of fences, resulting in this set-up plus some spare pieces.

During my stay in the revalidation clinic I did a first attempt at a church steeple.

The idea was good, but the dimensions were way off.

After taking a few closer looks I did another version today.

Image

Better, IMNSHO, but still too blunt, so a next try is in order.

Finally begins to look like something. Steeplish even.

After attaching the previous spire to a dummy bit of clocktower I found it wasn't quite what I aspired - sorry for that one.

Image

So I did a Spire M kIV, and this one looks the biz, IMNSHO.

Image

Perhaps a bit overengineered with no fewer than 8 roof sections, but then again I'm living close to the German border, and it might have been something I caught over there.

Next challenge: adding the rest of the church.

Still, I'd appreciate if somebody reminds me to take up an easier hobby, like nuclear physics or Swahili cross word puzzles.

Sketched in the rest of the church. Next is the time consuming bit, all structures, windows and other details.

That's looking very impressive, Gungs. Looking forward to seeing more.

Somebody suggested buttresses.

Since I aim to please - let's not talk about how often I miss - here's a buttress. They'll be an option.

To give you an idea where I'm going with the texturing, here's a screenshot of the side wall I did last night.

Im print it will be slightly different.

Finished the last bit of detailing of my church paper model last night, now it's ready for print - I think.

Later this week I hope to build the final version, sio I can take pics for the webshops.

Final build so far. Tired, spire next session.

Found two minor errors, nothing fatal.

And finally, the spire in place. Almost a month of interrupted work, but I think it's worth it.

This is version A, will start work now on version B, with buttresses.

Done.

This is the final version of my paper model of a typical Dutch church, with the optional buttresses in place , and the two optional window sheets, clear and coloured.

The example is 17th Century, so modellers/gamers may use it for any period since then.

Time allowing, we do have some appointments, the first sale will be listed in our webshop http://www.papierenbouwplaten tomorrow, with more scales following soon(ish).

This has been one of my most complicated models so far, and certainly the largest.
