I like the ladders - how did you make them?
I need a couple for my airship.

Hi Zak just two strips of plastic drilled out and brass bar through the holes for cross bits.

Thanks, I would just have used plastic strip for both, your drilling skills are better than mine.

Floors made from card then scored and colored with pencil crayons -- holes cut to match the holes in the floor.  Tree trunks made from plastic tube and old tea leaves for support under the mortar in the roof - and finally a bench/table for the anti tank gun in the cellar.

Figures added to house.  The strange object on the top is the start  of the roof beams to support the tiles ( I hope I get them on the correct way this time or Zak will take great pleasure in pointing this out AGAIN )

My friend Oggy has asked if he is in this model - so have told him he is one of the wounded in the basement being looked after by the nurse.
This has made him happy BUT i now have to make a 1/72 scale bike so that he knows it is him.

I think your limits are boundless, you take dioramas to another level.

Thank you all for the comments - but to me its just having FUN - I admire the quality you lot can get into your models, and I try to emulate  (but never succeed. )

Not modest -- just know my place in the pecking order. I don't know what you mean about my imagination - it only comes from the dark side of my mind.
On another topic some more work done on the roof , and before you ask Zak -- yes I have put in a drain gully for the water coming off the roof.
