What material did you use ?
Personally i would go with clean stucco wall ....with a little damage here and there,
Because of the architectural features.
The door and shutters look real nice

Its foamed poly board, so very fine and workable. impressive stuff.

Im making some scale changes..some elements seemed overscale and clunky (shutters and bricks) so I am refining them

I was going for a similiar main wall to the yellow wall on here (didnt see this till after I had done it in fact) where the blocks are just fake stucco as they often were miniart-models.com/products/36013/#lg=1&slide=4

I may fill in the lines on the main wall and as you say just expose some more broken plaster sections to brick

Okay,i thought it was white polystyrene sheet (Looks good.)
Must find the Dutch version of poly board and check it out.

This is the kind of stuff here:

www.mightyape.co.nz/product/green-stuff-...ed-pvc-5-mm/28284908

comes in 1-2-5mm thick. Its sort of half way between harder polystyrene and softer woodland scenics foamboards, seems very dense/clean and robust (no blue/paint problems like foam)

Im using polysytrene sheet/strip for doors and half rounds etc.

Version 2.. re-rendered the walls, some remodelling of shutters etc. Starting to feel a bit happier that it all looks more in scale

Love the door handle. It's the little details... That comes up well under the primer, down to the wood grain on the shutters.

You need some dust on the tracks in between the track teeth. Looks superb mate.

Thanks! She will be getting a good dusting once on the base.

Notice a certain Tropische Kopfbedeckung hanging from the front shield ;)

Yep, down pipe and everything. Will look outstanding with the footpath and cobble stone road? Or are you going dirt road?
