Quick tidy up at the back  --- a section of card stuck over the uneven back and a coat of black poster paint.
Now on to make some flags for the front of the castle - one will say "Brid and Wolds" and the other on the opposite side will say "Model Club" -- that is if my Japanese from the internet is correct.

Hi Msea,
Lets hope that nobody from Japan reads this post.
It might mean I have to moderate you Msea, if you make a mistake with the flag wording...
Careful now Martin-San
Cheers,
Bigkev

At last some work done on the models.
If the internet is correct the top one should say "model club" and the bottom one say "Brid and Wolds"
If not I will be in trouble with Kevin - big trouble.

Hi Msea,
Looks like the 'Slave Driver Gene' can be transmitted.
Me, last night, now Zak.
Hope its not contagious, would want your nearest and dearest to get it, would you?

Glutton for punishment!!

After a couple of rows I AGREE WITH YOU. 
But when you have started you have to finish - now off to have some tea then try to get the rest of the tiles on.  Then a coat of paint and some top ridge tiles between the rows - that should be another couple of days work.

Very nice, I would probably have used paper for the tiles. If you wrap it round the right size tube, dampen it and let it dry it works a treat, or silver foil is ok too.
I guess yours is more resilient.
I like your approach.
