Photo Three and Four - These two photos show the initial stages of construction, a 3mm plastic card core with plastic card framing and a stone base. In addition I added one section of wattle (from another small section of a Grand Manner building) as I wanted to show a section of damaged wall.
Photo Five - The internal detail was to be kept plain (there isn't a lot you can model in a dovecote!) However I was pleased with the building/roof split, which has worked very well.
Photo Six, Seven and Eight - At this stage, I have in-filled the wall sections with Das modelling clay, constructed the roof and entrance for the Doves/Pigeons plus started to build up the base.
Photo Nine - In this photo, you can see how the walls and roof have been constructed and textured. The Dovecote floor is detailed with a small section of wallpaper and the entrance and base have been further detailed.
Photo Thirteen - The finished model split into its three separate sections, the main building, the gabled roof and the roof to the dovecote entrance.
I am very pleased with the final result and look forward to seeing it cast in resin (and painted). I also enjoyed working to such a 'tight' brief and attempting to copy the illustration as closely as possible.
