I've got the base coat of paint on, went pretty quickly actually. The most time consuming part is the brown woodwork, since all three surface of each board have to be painted, without slopping paint all over everything else.

The door for the cooper was built from the foam cut for the doorway, covered in strip balsa, with styrene hinges. Pins are used for the bolts, and a brass ring for the door pull.

Most of the last couple of days though has been spent building this balsa staircase.

Looking better and better! That's probably the best door I've seen! Love those little details.

The staircase looks awesome too! Thanks for sharing all this knowledge, man!

If you measure it right, you can get both stair stringers in one cut, one side is the negative of the other.

The staircase is a BEAUTIFUL piece all by itself. AND the door is cool...I use a similar method myself including the jump ring. VERY WELL DONE! thumbsup

Ok, never tried this before, but here goes: thatched roof. I hear lots of people say they prefer the towel thatching, but Iíve always liked the look of teddy bear fur.

I first cut the fur to fit the roof, in two pieces.

I glued them in place, and gave them a bit of a haircut to look layered.

Next I brushed on some watered down pva, which makes it less fluffy and able to be painted.

Once dry, I gave it a quick wash of brown. Done!

Iím happy with how it turned out. Iím still not sure it fits the style of this building, since itís the only thatched building in town, but then again, it is outside of town, so whatever. I want to do this again soon.

Man, you never get anything wrong! That looks amazing! Great visual effect with that new roof.

I see what you mean about that being the only thatched roof in your town. On the other hand, it would be amazing to see more of those on the outskirts of Dunbrough, or maybe having an entire village with houses like that.

I should do a whole village like that, it would save dozens of hours in roofing time.

That's true, I didn't think about that. On the other hand, you'll have to slaughter loads of innocent teddy bears. Smile

Closing in on wrapping up the cooper. These are some strip styrene rings, which will be some supplies the cooper will use in barrel making.

A small garden for the tax cheat from a piece of cardboard.

And some balsa fence posts for a cow pen.

Fast forward to a lot of the foliage being done. Just have to do shrubbery, weeds, and detailing (and figure painting) and this one will be complete!

I finished with the cooper the other day. I really wanted to get out and shoot this today after work, but then rain happened instead. So here are a couple of shots from on the table until I get the chance.
I finally did the woven fence, and I'm really happy with how it came out. I used corn broom bristles for the branches, they are pretty useful for scenery purposes.

Damn! This is too much! I love your work... It is such a visual treat... An adrenaline-charged eye candy that feeds my imagination. If I do not stop myself, I shall end up with terrain diabetes!

Will somebody please call the doctor... I am dying out here... dying of pure envy!

You are truly a Master!

Lovely work. The open cow pen reminds me of our old barn (except cleaner).

watching at your terrain i just wanīt to be only 28mm high and walk through your city. Itīs absolutly, unbelievable just perfect builded terrain. Hope you will show us a lot more of your city, if it is possible a few (about a few hundrets) of your nice sunshine pictures. Want to see a lot more details and the whole city all sunlit.

Such authenticity! Really love it.
What I'd do different is make the walls a bit dirtier because they look a bit too clean

I joined the forum just to say what an inspiring build this is. I am dead set on having my WHFRP/WHFB tables look as good as your table!
