    Well, I've done some scratchbuilding but nothing like this. This is my first creation.

    So, with my X-Acto knife, some card(yes Matthyro, it's card board), inks, glue, ruller, and so on, started on my work.

    So, in tis first pic, you can see the "thing" beginning to take shape.

    First walls glued.

    Some details with card board.

    So give that old swiss look, "painted" the house with some white glue, and the sprinkled some sand.

    Painted looks like this.

    This last one, it is at it should be.

    I'm enjoyed every minute of this.

    Cheers!

    As I already spoke to you "virtually"... it's great.


    Looks like an Asterix village house... These portuguese are nuts... :D :D :D :D

    Still need to do something to keep the cars of the house owners... let's what I can do.

    thks for your comments.

    Edit: Oops.. now I've noticed that this thread is on the wrong forum. It shoub under Scrathing. I'm sooooo sorry for this mistake.

    This house looks sweet, Luis!

    If you want it to be still more Swiss, you could add boxes with flowers below the windows. Perhaps a piece of painted sqare wood and then some green and red foam on top of it!

    Ok, in this pic you even don't see the flower boxes because there are so many geraniums (gerania??)

    Just a suggestion! :)

    PS: I love that wooden fence along the road. Looks good, too!

    It looks like the bed-and-breakfast place I stayed in Xaniel.
    Don't forget the 1,000 Geranium flowers in window boxes :D (there's your next three weeks work cut out for you) :D :D

    That's great! The glue and sand is a clever technique.

    A pretty, little house, Luis! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    I want to spend my next vacations there. Especially when there is a railroad line passing directly behind the house. :D :D :D

    RailRon, you're invited to come over for vacations.

    Still need to do a shelter for your car and a fence to keep the unwanted out of "my propertie" and my guests safe. :D LOLOL

    Any way, I think it's ready for little plastic people live.
