Boot Fair Finds (2)

Well here is the other building! Yes I could have done better, but it is good enough for me. The model is out of Model A&E and doing well.

So what needed doing? Firstly one corner was chipped and had to be re-built. It is actually the bottom right corner. It is now slightly more rounded than the other 3. You will not notice it unless you either have the model or have read this post. I am quite pleased with it. yes it could be better but it could be a LOT worse.


The roof should have been in 2 pieces, but being broken was in 4 pieces AND the top ridge was completely re-built which dos show but does look better than it was

You can see on the right top section the repair. Not totally obvious but visible. More so from the underside, which I am not showing you.







The model finished repaired and ready to be put away. A Boot fair bargain and I think the lady was Happy to get rid of them. I suspect it was an ex-boyfriends that she wanted to forget about. But that is only me speculating so It could be any reason at all.









And the last picture does show the wonky ridge line from the back. You can also see the corner dips slightly but hey who cares The building is now usable although I am currently looking at it and wondering if I should paint the thatch grey-brown to look weathered. (But I probably will not!

Now I had best get back to some figure painting! And get my Russian modern platoon finished.

Cheers For looking.
All the best Clint
