I started work on the church a while back and I'm making good progress. It's slowly taking shape and not far off being ready for cladding.
One problem I still need to over come are the stain glass windows. There's 15 of them. I'm thinking it might be easiest to have the lazer cut from 1mm or 0.5mm material. But the first think is to do is draw them up.

Not sure whether the problem is with the actual windows or the glass. York Modelmaking do a range of church windows and Langley have a sheet of stained glass.

If they are the right size this may solve your problem.

Hope this helps.

The church is progressing well. The structure is done. It's looking pretty impressive....

I've been working on another cameo for the layout. This one is from a 70's comic rather then a film.

Major Easy's Bentley from Battle Picture Weekly.

It started out live as one of Oxfords SS Jaguar models that got a proper backstreet cut and shut job done on it.






Chassis and body cut in half. Both shortened and reassembled.

And this is how it looks against the original model. Markings and weathering to add to complete.

Slow but steady progress with the church. Still a long way to go, but looking good already

The 37 is there again for scale comparison.
