Village life

The first of the village models coming up here. This one is the pub/hotel, but the range will develop into a complete village.

I've based mine on a snowy scene with the ever growing ambition that I'll actually finish it by Christmas.

The little kits comes flat packed in pieces complete with instructions to put it together. This particular piece should be ready for release early October.

This one has been painted with acylics and the windows have been coated in glossy accents. White felt and Snowtex has been used on the roof.

The outlines of the windows and doors have been engraved so it's easy to run a felt tip pen around the groove to emphasise them.

This shot is to indicate the size of the piece.

Yay, it's the international craft gauge escaped from Gez's blog! This is so cute, Di! Maybe you could call the range something like "The Village Green" (or even "The Village Green Preservation Society" ;o)
