Roman Villa, Part 9

The villa is progressing well. The stable roof is completed. I have glued the horizontal card strips on the main villa roof, put the crest on the servant's quarters roof, and begun the vertical tiles.

The gate is almost complete, with just some tiling to complete.

Finally I have "layed" the paving on the courtyard.

The next step will be to complete the main villa roof and then begin painting those parts of the stables and the servant's quarters that won't be able to be reached when the villa is glued in place.

    1. Thank you Jonathan. It is amazing how small things can make a big difference - that courtyard floor has really given the model life (although it took over an hour to complete so it was no small thing really).

    2. Mark, sometimes the small things ARE the big things!
      The courtyard tiling is very nice.

    3. And by the end of this evening it will be painted. It is half done now and looking good so far!
