Littleworth Victorian school - part two

Next stage was to search the textures and colours I want to use.

Textures are aged brown brick TX07 from Scale Scenes and Mixed Grey Roof Slates from Model Railway Scenery. Brick Textures are printed on a photo canvas paper. Slates are printed on 100 gms. Rice paper from Hahnemühle.

Remember: different settings and choices on your printer can give different results.

 

Colours are from AK-paints – wood grain, from Citadel Paints: Zandre Dust base colour, Sturmvermin Fur layer colour and Dawnstone dry and Ivory from Vallejo Paints. I also used paints from Petite Properties: Red squirrel and Top of the milk.

 

I also needed some additional textures for some details.

The textures are Old Floorboards from Smart Models; White Stucco from Scale Scenes and the Floor Page from the Scale Scenes church TO14.

 

Next step was to paint the window and door parts of the model, before adding the textures. Although I had selected a colour for the windows, I used another colour that gave a better result: Dust – from AK Paint. For the doors I used Woodgrain from AK Paints.

I also painted the small stone parts in this stage.

To see if my choices worked out, I started with the “toilet” building. The brick paper was glued on the walls. I painted the doors using the Woodgrain paint from AK. After I have glued the walls together, the additional details were glued on the building. Then the roof was fitted and finished.

Next step is building the main building of the school.

 

As always information, comments and suggestions are welcome.

 

Greetings, 

Job

Brrr... memories of outdoor school toilets in the winters of the 1950s! Frozen pipes and and a mad dash through icy winds. No lingering!! :unsure_mini: Lovely details, maybe have the school janitor nearby with a bucket and mop?

Marlyn, thanks for your memories. I can not imagine. But my school will be set a little more back in time, so I doubt if there was a school janitor nearby.

You are probably right, Job! In a small school the teacher would probably have looked after the buildings, perhaps with help from a local cleaning lady?

Hi Job, I hope you and yours are doing well in these difficult times.

 

What a pleasing design of building - well the exterior at least!  :) Nice choice of textures and very well built, as always. Thanks for providing all the details of the manufacturers/source of components, very useful.

Here is everything alright. But actually, there is not much changed for us. This is the way we are living already for almost seven years. The only difference is to keep distance, be careful when shopping and some services are closed. But we are still healthy. Walking every morning with our dogs: Tom, an recently adopted English Setter and Quinn, an Irish Soft Coated Wheaten.

Glad you liked the approach of the entry.

 

And of course I hope you and your family are doing well.
