My photo
Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

Normandy House Version 2.01

Good day everyone!

Today, I uploaded some photos of my new house, made by the same materials (foamcore, card, plastic windows, Wills sheets - slates), alongside with some new goodies (e.g Wills quoins), but with a new method. You see, this time the plaster attached to the foamcore walls, was ''enriched'' with sand. This is how I achieved this effect on the walls (IMHO it looks more realistic, than my other efforts)!

What do you think? I hope you like it! :-)

Normandy's shop close photos

Good day everyone!

Firstly I would like to thank you for visiting my blog!
It is not a full year since I sent my first post, and the feedback I am receiving from you today, exceeds the most extreme wishful thoughts I could ever do about that!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!I really appreciate it!! :-)

Today, I have uploaded some close-up photos of the store I made with the awning, for my dear friend GReg who has a very nice and full of ideas blog GReg my friend, I hope it helps you see how generic and easy it is. I am sure that you would be able to take it to the next level, quite easily!!

I am currently making another house, and this time I am using a mix of plaster and sand, alongside with some Wills' goodies!!! If it goes right, you'll be the first to see it! Fingers crossed it does!!

So, on with the pics!!!

Thank you all again!

Addicted to Normandy

Good day everyone!
As you probably have thought from the blog's title, today I am uploading some photos of my new babies. Two new buildings for my collection. They are nothing special, but they blend well with the others that I already have.

Leaving aside these two buildings, I have decided to try some new methods in scratch-building the components of my project! That's why I ordered some new goodies from Wills and Slaters' building accessories to experiment a bit!

Stay tuned! :-)

Be polite though, and give a look at these two buggers!!! :-) Thx!

Normandy's latest additions!

Good day and good week everyone!

I have been absent for almost two weeks, due to business trips that didn't let me much time to use it for my hobby!

Last weekend though, I managed to make two more buildings for my Normandy project! They are scratch built, made from mainly from Foamcore, plastic strips and Auhagen HO windows. I hope you like them!
