Are you painting them bricks individually? Spect you have told us in the past, easier to ask than trawl through 188 pages! If yes I admire your dedication, but I admire all your building work. There are too many in our scale that just buy a Piko or Pola kit rather than making the effort you do. Many would cite lack of skills, but no one has inbuilt scratch building skills, they are achieved by doing as you do.

Jon, though I appreciate the sentiment, I do think some people can hone their skills better than others, and some people do have an inbuilt lack of ability, regardless of how much they try.

Yes, I find it works best, for me, I know the daub method, but it doesn't work for me, I lack fine motor skills (due to my cmt) and smash it on..too heavy..thank you

Like the patterned brickwork, Mike..

Sorry for the ocular woes.

Another superb job, Mike. The colour of the stonework is spot on and the patterned section is a magnificent bit of detailing.
