Slow Progress

I know it doesn't look like I've done very much on the latest house since the last post about it but appearances can be deceptive.

Number 22 is a devilishly complicated design so there's been at lot to do to get all the pieces for the 'north wing' into a state where they're ready to be glued into a box.

Chief among the complications is the stone cladding around the garage door which has to be scraped onto the styrene - this is obviously much easier to do on a flat, single piece of styrene rather than when it's part of a bigger house shape.

As that part is one of the key components of the structure, however, I can't start assembling any of them until it's ready to join the fray.

You may also notice that the other end piece has acquired a strange protrusion at one side.

This is a small bit of the garage which extends beyond the side of the rest of the house and butts onto number 23.

I have also shaped the bottom of this end piece to reflect the change in the ground level between the front and the back of the house.

It will have 'foundations' added behind and below later on so that the whole structure sits flat and at the correct height.

It's going to a be while until I get to that stage though.

Stone scraping next. Can't wait......
