Excellent pictures Martin and a good showcase for 'Metcalfe'. I have to ask though, why do the dormer roofs look such a  different colour to the main roofs, especially in picture 1 - is it the lighting?

I used to be indecisive - now I'm not - I don't think.

Thanks.
I hadnít noticed the different colours bit have just been upstairs to check.
They are the same so I guess itís the lighting.
If it looks right then it most probably is right.

Tregonning was always an attempt to see what I could do largely with Metcalfe kits and whilst they are a little one dimensional, they do create a fairly pleasing scene I think. Plus they are good fun to build.
The school bus has just disgorged the local children who will, no doubt, make their way to the sweet shop.


Martin, with your excellent landscaping and attention to detail, the Metcalfe kits look great. I've wondered if the finished kits could be painted with a thin wash of gray color to mitigate the "one-dimensional" effect. Has anyone done that? I don't feel the red brick buildings need it, but the stone buildings might benefit. My buildings are almost all red-brick, but I will be building the gray stone Manor Farm. I've got a tunnel/road crossing that is stone, also. I did a little "touch-up" of the tunnel that left something to be desired, but it didn't do any damage to the card.

Leon I've given my Metcalfe Church a wash with thinned Black and it transformed it beyond expectation. It was scary trying it though!

Martin I'm so glad this thread has bumped back to the first page(s) or i might have missed it. Stunning work
