Fenestrating. . . Slowly. . .

The Hospital of the Holy Spirit model is just about finished.  Remarkably, I made no mistakes that need later touching up.  That happens so rarely that I am still a bit stunned.  Clearly, one is able to paint somewhat better when not distracted by the trials of normal day-to-day life.

Taking a lunch break here in Zum Stollenkeller Mk. II at Totleigh-in-the-Wold, but I thought I'd share where we are in the process of suggesting windows and doors.  This one was the toughie!  Fairly smooth sailing from here on in with comparatively easy rectangles representing the doors and windows on the rest o the buildings.  All that is needed on the above hospital building though is the clock near the top of the central gable, two strips of "corroded cooper" stripping on the front edges of both shorter gables, and this particular wargaming structure will be done.  I plan to come back to those kinds of details a bit later though once the addition of stylized windows and doors has been completed on the rest of the buildings.

Looking good! I would agree with you that stylised detail is the way to go.

Kind regards,

You've really nailed the copper! and the brick. Nice work all around.

These are turning out really well. I'm very impressed.

The weather copper effect has come out nicely

Windows are always tricky, I've tried a couple of things in the past to get some sort of glass effect
- greys with a gloss varnish
- thin clear plastic paint dark grey on the back and with a window frame stuck on top of the plastic and then that onto the building

This looks great Stokes. Love the copper roofs.
