It might just be that they seem a bit daring when compared to the more 'normal' standard of Metcalfe buildings. Once the trees etc. appear they may well look just right. Some people do paint the stonework of their houses so the concept is perfectly sound. I'd suggest sticking with them.  :thumbsup:

Thank You

Hello Chums

Thank you very much for all your kind and encouraging comments about my effort at a Brian Cook-inspired building.  I'll finish the building in this style and then try another one.  After that, I can think again (hopefully with your help) about whether to continue in this idiom.

Many thanks for looking and all best wishes.

Toodle-pip.

The Table-Top Railway is an attempt to create, in British 'N' gauge,  a 'semi-scenic' railway in the old-fashioned style, reminiscent of the layouts of the 1920s to the 1950s.

G'day Flossie! The grass at Poppingham is a bit greener than the stuff your Aussie cousins have at the moment!
