Tudor Market Hall - Construction complete, sort of...................

FINALLLY!!  That last 10% really did take the other 90% of the time!  But now I'm happy....sort of......because I've just decided to re-do the chimney.  But this is not a big job and will be done along side getting the internals done.  Now I can bore you all with copious pics, so take a deep breath and here goes!!

Front wall with access to both market area and first floor area.

This doorway provides access to the  first floor.  I still have to attach the hardware to the doors so they are not permanently installed as yet.

Side wall with diaper work.

Back view showing all levels.

Full side wall.

Lights were all made by Peter and he has installed his flicker unit so the candles flicker - but not in unison!!
The background lighting is provided by LED's imbedded behind beams or whatever else was available!

Market hall area - which I'm sure to have fun filling!

First floor Guild meeting room - the "formal" room!!

Top floor - which will be the general "store" room for the Guild Hall!

Now I'm left with the job of filling the 3 floors with life!  I have already started putting together some McQueenie Miniatures kits for the Guild area as that would be a little more upmarket than the other areas!  I wish I could have had the time to make my own furniture but on this occation, it was not to be.  It will probably take me a few weeks to get the "decorating" done - but it will definitely be going on display at the Sydney Miniature Show being held on May 5 and 6.

When the market hall is filled I will return it to the screen one last time!!
