What a great start to a a Sunday!
I have been doing some work on my 144th scale garden room this weekend. I have built some furniture for the garden. Having decided that the original bench and table were just the wrong scale to go with the furniture I had built for the interior, I have made some new pieces. I used bits from 2 different kits that I bought from http://www.insomesmallway.co.uk/ . The kits I used are designed by Susan Karatjas of SDK Miniatures. I used two chairs from the kitchen table set and an end table from the little round tables kit. I painted them black once I had built them to make them look similar to wrought iron furniture.
That is an english penny next to them for scale.
Then I set about painting the grand piano to go in the room. I can imagine sitting at the piano playing it whilst looking out through the open french doors into the garden. It was quite a task. This is the first time I have even attempted to paint detail on any furniture let alone 144th scale. I am quite pleased with the result although the keys are just a bit wonky!!!!
Again the penny for scale.
I have been doing a lot of planning on my 24th scale french house. I have decided on the design of the exterior and am hoping to make a start on it this week. I have got some Realistic Brick Compound and am going to have a bash at using it for the quoins down the sides. So you never know fingers crossed the next post will be a picture of those done.
