1/12th Scale 'The Old Chapel'


This is 'The Old Chapel', my most recent 1/12th scale cottage. Based on a pair of Alm's Houses featured in Caroline Hamilton's book on dolls houses I made the Gothic style windows out of mount board spread with plaster - a bit fiddly but I think they worked out quite well. The roof is also made out of card - a stout acid free type - so that I could cut out all those strange angles with my Stanley knife. As the clay tiles dried they created a bit of a wobble in places - just how an old roof should be!!
