  1. The apple tree, most of the vegetation and the sunflowers are from Busch. I also use Woodland Scenics.
  2. On Facebook I use Miss Parker to write about her research of the historical buildings of Littleworth and her daily life in the 1950’s. I separate the story there from my modelling information. So, Miss Parker continues: When I come back in Green Lane, I see the Austin pick up from Mr. James Nash standing in in the lane. Mr. Nash has a pet shop on Station Road in Northall where I sometimes buy some Spratt’s cat food. The Piggott sisters order their animal food there. Mr. Nash is probably delivering some Thornley’s pig food and some chicken food to Apple Tree cottage. Mr. Nash is talki
  3. Thank you. Miss Parker inherited the cottage from her parents in 1947 when her father, Frank Parker, died. Now she is thinking of a second mortgage to do some roof repair and modernising the cottage. Installing a bathroom and a refrigerator.
  4. Maybe she should ask the local builder for some roof repair.
  5. I have not posted a blog for a while. But I am still modelling. I have finished my cottage. This cottage is called Rose Cottage and it belongs to Miss Harriet Parker, a free-lance journalist and writer. For the magazine of the Middleshire Historical Society Miss Parker wants to describe the cottages of Littleworth. She thought it would be a nice idea to start with the cottage she lives in. Sitting behind her Underwood Noiseless 77 typewriter she starts typing: “I know the cottage is built in around 1900. But there is not much information about the cott
  6. The A70 pick up from John Day Models was still waiting to be painted. A couple of weeks ago I started with this little project. First job is to clean the white metal model. After drying it got the first coat of primer. This time I did not spray the model but added the Vallejo grey primer with a brush. The model has now to dry for 24 hours. Modelling information: In the Austin A70 sales brochure there is a summery for the use of the pick- up. Trades mentioned are market gardeners, painters & decorators, dairymen, poultry farmers, retail traders and everyday carriers.
  7. I have not used the RMweb for a while. Love your pictures.
  8. Mikkel thanks for sharing the information of Michael Paul Smith Greetings, Job
  9. Thanks for the nice complement. Actually it's because Miss Shaw is celebrating that's she is a teacher for 25 years at the school. See the article in The Middleshire Magazine for Local History.
  10. A pictorial journey: To test the choice of the textures I started to build the toilet group. Next step is building the main building of the school. Then the base had to be made and the school must be glued on the base. Base made with the help of a frame maker. The scene would be a photographer taking a picture of Victorian school class for a special occasion. I hope you have enjoyed this little journey. Comments and suggestions are as usual welcome K
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. Hi Marlyn. Here is every thing well. Have posted part 2.
  14. 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
  15. Hi Marlyn, I hope your are in good health and not suffering from the Corona virus. Thanks for the information. Will post an update some of these days. Greetings, Job
