Fachwerk house in progress

After returning from my two week holidays I already managed to start painting the house. I still have to finish the other side of the stonewall first floor. I already started painting on some moss and grime effects on the lower sections of the stonewall visible on the picture. The roof tiles have been oversprayed with Lifecolor paints already. The most difficult part should be the roof since I want to create many different weathering effects on them. During the holidays I visited Lower Silesia, where the landscape is full of many houses of this type. I brought with me not only nice photos and memories but also new inspirations, new ideas. Constructing miniature buildings is becoming more and more interesting for me so studies are needed to recreate the reality as accurately as possible. 
More progress to follow.

It takes time...

It takes time to create something interesting but I'm almost ready with the construction part of the building. I even already started painting the loweR part of the house. Tommorow I'm departing for holidays so a update will follow later on, in late August. Below you can find pictures of the progress.

"Approaches to Berlin" dio progress

I'm almost done with the construcion of the fachwerk/stonewall style house for the JS 2 diorama. I used a certain number of Juweela roof tiles. They need a lot of work but the final effect is very pleasing. Soon I'm gonna start painting the building. Below you can find a WiP picture.
