The Wealden House

The second 'Museum Quality' 28mm building is this 'Wealden House', this time based on Bayleaf from the Weald and Downland Open Air Museum. The master is now with Dave and once again in the process of being moulded and cast in resin. I would expect the resin model to be on sale very soon.

The first photo shows the finished master (with thatch roof).

The next five images show work-in-progress and internal detailing.

Here you can see the alternative tiled roof master.

And finally - the finished model.

Since visiting the Weald and Downlands Museum, see; link I have had the opportunity to study the actual building and I have modelled the master model with many of the damaged and problem areas in an attempt to include the imperfections as close to the original as possible.

The alternative thatch/tile roof options will add to the variety. In addition I have also modelled the toilet extension that is evident on the museum building, this may be included in the finished resin model!

Once again, modelling to this higher detail has seen my modelling skills improve and I would hope that I can maintain this improvement throughout the total range.
