Great pics - some beautiful buildings there too. I'd like to hear some details of how you make them if possible.

Excellent buildings - Clive is right, you must tell us more. I look at your work and I see a touch of everything which is good in modelling British buildings - John Ahearn, Allan Downes, Pendon, and a touch of Portmeirion - Love it.

The buildings are from 5mm plastic sheet cut to shape with a saw, with the usual paint or brick paper, together with doll house fittings for windows etc., and interiors. Ive been taking lessons from Peter Smith / Kirtley Model Buildings who is the "author" of several of the more complex structures, but hope that Ive now upped my game sufficiently to at least superficially "look good on Youtube". Hope to show some more stuff soon, when I buy some more glue that actually sticks ... just been having a frustrating experience with some pavements ...

A belated welcome from me in SW France!

Love your buildings! Do you think your construction methods would last in an outdoors environment??



lol!

Would be ok in a southern climate, as long as you take them in when it gets inclement ...
