Secondly, the floors and ceilings glued back to back, with the addition of an extra couple of layers to two of them, to form an upper and lower ledge. Cut the small internal walls out, and away we go building.

I think a small wall or a fence may be in order to finish it off.

The few pictures that I do have show some of the clever techniques used by John at Scalescenes, the designer of all of the kits I use.
As you saw in the previous post, the carcass is as simple as it gets, but that's when the clever stuff starts.
The back wall of the house is in three sections. The first part takes two windows and also forms the interior wall of the downstairs scullery. The second takes a window and a door.
When constructing the end gable wall, this forms the end for two houses. It also accommodates a clever feature forming the drainpipes. Constructing them like this means, that they will never be knocked off or damaged. Plus it also give strength and rigidity to the structure.

I've decided to put the eight houses onto a diorama and not on the layout. So, without any delay, I'm going to build the next part. I intend to make Low Relief Terrace Backs. I will be building the T008 from Scalescenes, with the Out Building add on pack, as these will match the existing outbuildings I've already done. This will give me a "northern style" back to back look. I want to build these at a rapid pace, as I have loads of ideas going round my head, to what I want it to end up looking like. So here goes.
This is a simple build. Walls and floors inter link and fix to the main back wall. So simple and sturdy.
Interior walls add substance and strength.
The complete kit gives you enough parts to make a row of six houses. I need to print another set out so that I can have ten houses. Good job it's buy once off of Scalescenes and print as many times as you need.
Until Next Time............

As promised here is the way I make the chimney pots for my houses. First of all, if you’re brave, raid your good lady’s cosmetic bag and pinch what is called an orange stick.
