    Marcin, congratulations to your talent in scratchbuilding, and welcome to the Gauge!

    This looks great all around. It shows what can be done with patience, fantasy and dedication - and all that with simple tools and materials.

    Hehe, makes me proud that our Swiss Army knife is capable to do such fine model work! Marcin, I never thought of using my knife for such model work - but surely I'll give it a try in the near future. So you found one more use of that universal tool - great!

    DanPick, don't underestimate the sharpness of a properly honed Swiss Army knife! In the hands of a talented modeller it works wonders, as we can see here.

    Thanks

    To color the paper I'm using paints made by testors and Model Master. Because I do not own an airbrush I'm painting it by hand.

    Wow! Great detailing!
    The furniture looks great. This is very fine modelling, Marcin.

    Is this a wood fired cooking oven in the kitchen? I also noted that you have a stove in every room. Is this still common in Poland?

    Now I am curious how the rest of the furniture and the rooms in the upper story will turn out... :thumb:

    Great interior although there is something missing. How about posters on the wall and junk on the floor in the kids room.

    Hello. Yes RailRon this is a wood and coal fired cooking oven in the kitchen. I have made heat furnaces i two rooms. One of them is much bigger beacause it has to heat up two rooms. This way of heating houses is not common anymore in Poland but I know that some people still use it. In this builging it still exists.

    [​IMG] I'm just using a Swiss knife just to help me out with the bricks. For all the cuts I'm using exacto and carpenter knifes.

    Engineshop: For now on I'm goining to leave the interior as it is. I just spend way too much time on it [​IMG] . The good news is that I will have removable floors and roof so I can always come back to it later on.

    Marcin, forgive me for being so slow to check out this thread, but some how I missed it, that sure is remarkable work your doing. and no, I am not going to remark on your choice of tools, I never comment on a person with bigger tools than mine, and as you get the results you do, why would I?.

    hope to see more of your work in the future...great job... have a good one..steve
