Low Relief High Street Backs Part Three………….

I know it’s been a while, but I think I’m back on track (Pardon the pun) It’s been a busy old time at work and what with the run up to Christmas, I haven't had much time to craft. And when I did get the time, I sliced off the end of my thumb with a food processor blade! OUCH. But hopefully normal service has been resumed now my thumb has healed.

Where were we up to? Oh yes, drainpipes. Believe it or not there is a lot of work goes into the humble drainpipe. Each drainpipe is an individual element and not just printed on the wall.

Once couple together with a gable end, you have a very effective drainpipe.

And when put together with the carcass.


Apology time. I accidentally wiped the memory card of my camera with he pictures of the first façade I made, so there is a bit of a jump to where I am up to now.

The first of the units has a low rise extension attached to the façade. True to scalescenes it’s not just a box stuck on the back. There is as much detail in the extension as there is in any of the scalescenes build.

Once all the walls are put into place, then the fun starts with the fine detail.

I really enjoy all of the fine detail. It gives the building real character.


Next comes a little time consuming bit. Can you tell what it is?

Did you guess? That’s right, it’s a set of steps for that floating door on the extension.

The next post I will show the finished first façade in all it’s glory.

Until Next Time……………
