Some news, not wargames related but posted here antyhow for completeness sake.

First, a side project: a Lama Buddhist boarding school in Northern India.

Image

Had to check with our lama friend about some details, which will nnow be added shortly.

It's a two story building in braille scale.

As an addition to my already extensive line of containers there is this new 40 feet one, soon available in h0, N and 1:50.

Image

Finally, a plastic sheet of solar panels, to upgrade model railroad buildings for the 21st Century. Soon available in h0, N and Z.

This is the second version. The first one was not as deep, but after I'ld printed out the sheet I noticed there was enough space lefyt over to add another 1.8 scale maters to the side walls.

Might have to shorten the roof overhang a bit, one of the options is with a kitchen extension, that will still have to fit under it.

I'm picturing five versions:

- plain
- wood-clad gable
- extra dormer window(s?)
- kitchen extension
- bay window.

And yes, it will have doors and windows and stuff like that. I first considered selling them as an expensive options sheet, but I doubt the punters would go for that.


Older members will remember the above project, which got sidetracked by a near-fatal combination of other projects and real life.

Yesterday I came across the project again, and I decided it was both too small and too dull. So, I added more length and height, a bay window and an extension.
Also, I made the walls semi-plastered, a condition many of you will be familiar with, I added a hard brick bottom to prevent rising damp, and I changed the tint of the bricks to a warmer tone - as you will be able to see on this black and white test print.

Image

As you can see, the roof shrunk a bit in the wash, buyers may be happier with one that actually fits, so I'll fix that.

More windows will be added as well, and the one next to the door will move to the left a bit..

Fixed the roof, found there was some space left on the sheet, so I added two dormer windows.

The printer delivered the final version of my latest paper model, a somewhat modernized 1920's detached Dutch house, and I just finished building this demo version.

Starting tomorrow I'll start adding it gradually in several scales on our webshop www.papierenbouwplaten.nl.

As you can see, there are two choices for the front wall: with or without a bay window.

Looking really good Gungs. Don't get rid of the first one, it's a dead ringer for a wizards hat and what with Halloween nearly upon us...

Next is a coal merchant.

It will be a complete set with a shed, a loading platform, coal bins and heaps, fencing and pavement. I plan to sell it together with some miniature coal, to improve the bins and heaps.

Taking of coal bins or bunkers, this is a trial version of one. It will get a railway sleeper design, and a dummy coal heap.

Image

In one of my rare smarter moments I figured that by adding some pallets with bricks, and turning the coal into sand or so, I have a building supply yard with very little extra wurruk.

I love it when a plan comes together.

After the ornate main gate in 6mµ scale, posted elsewhere on these pages, tonight I tried out one of the curtain walls.

These are the test prints so far. Some fiddling is still necessary.

Finally got around to working some more on the coal merchant paper model.

Did the coal heaps - in the final version they'll be covered in miniature coal, improve the coal bunker, made more fences, and finally checked to see how it all went together.

Result: found that one piece of the fence is way too short, so I added a few sections to one.

Now all that remains is some cleaning up and detailing.

Some will be supplied with each set.

I remember a coal shed being repurposed into a caravan storage. Even after years, the caravans all turned rather dirty over winter.

Coal merchant is finally done, in two scales, will go to the printer's tomorrow.

Then on to the next one, a Russian church.

Trying out some domes I kinda "borrowed" for inspiration from a Russian colleague - no need to re-invent the wheel, right?

Image

The first one (left) is very nice, but just dome, not enough onion.

The second one, on the right, is more like it.

Now all I have to do is make my own in this style, and build a village church under it.

Watch this space - or better, the future ones under this one.

Beta build of the onion dome.

Mr. Google informed me that many domes were not metal clad but had wooden shingles. Since I'm depicting a small rural village in the mid 40's, after over two decades of Soviet rule, I'll go with weathered shingles.

Here's the current - and I think shape-wise final - version of the dome, in front of the middle section of the church, for size comparison. This middle section will have a platform thingy on the roof as the base for the dome, and there will be two side extensions. Please note and appreciate my careful use of the correct architectural terminology.

Image

If all goes well the building could be finished before the end of this year, so there's no reason it will.

Test build of the Russian church complete.

One thing I still want to change: the optional extension will be shortened by one window, to give the whole complex a more compact look.

There will be an identical optional extension at the other end.

Now comes the time consuming part: adding all the structures and details.

Like the Russian village I did some time ago, this building will be available in both Winter and Summer versions.

Shortened the extension, as I threatened yesterday. Also added texture, which will be more obvious in colour, I hope.

IMNSHO the shorter extension looks better, makes the total look more compact than the earlier longer one, but please feel free to disagree.
