Tudor Market Hall
I was lucky enough to be able to acquire this Rik Pierce kit - and talk about a jigsaw puzzle - but it has been a heap of fun and hard work!! I am making 2 - one for a friend and one for myself and I'm working on them in tandem so it has kept me very busy - like one on a mission!! The mission being getting it finished as soon as possible.
My friend Leif literally saved my life by assisting with the distressing of all the wood needed for both kits. A lot of work there - but it kept him busy for most of a weekend!!
The internal walls clayed and lightly painted. Further aging later!!
See? I did my exercises on this day - I picked up the weights off the floor and placed them carefully on the table. They really come in handy for holding things in place!
Here it is taking shape - albeit slowly!
Here the beams and floors have been added.
Now I can continue to clay the outside - brickwork on all external walls.
The roof can then be added and I will put it on it's base and work on cobbling the market area. Still a fair amount of work to be done!
I'll keep you posted!
