Just a quick update to show further work on the building.
I have clad the yard walls in clay and etched in the brick pattern today. A lengthy fiddly process as it was all awkward angles to get at, but no other way off doing it (having learned the hard way of not doing separate MDF pieces with clay as they warp as the clay dries...)
So as the clay dried on the fixed in position yard walls they did not warp, wahay!The chimney stacks also had a little more clay added to blend them in better and brick etching done too.
So with etching complete, next step would be to add card tiles to the roof, of main dwelling and outbuildings.
However I want to rig up the internal lights first, and figure out the best position for battery pack and switch. At this time I am thinking about gluing down main roof, and having battery pack on lower inside wall of main dwelling which will be accessible from the underside of building and rigging the switch inside one of the outbuildings which will have a flip top roof.
I have ordered the LEDs and resistors I need from a US based company, and got the battery holder, wiring and switch from a local electronic component supplier.
Once LEDs arrive I can get busy!
