Adding a little decorative trim...

Well I have been steadily plodding away with mostly terrain tasks recently... a mix of gluing MDF and bbq skewers to my corner tavern, and continued etching work on the base board...

Couple of pics for you...

I am not sure what you call this kind of external detail work on the tavern but I am sure you can see what I am talking about... a 3mm thick piece of mdf trim was added first right under the first story windows. Under this was glued an pattern of round trims made from simple round wooden (bamboo?) bbq skewers approx 3mm dia.

Oh and you can probably the lower half window net curtains in place...

So the ground floor will be a painted surface, whilst the top two floors will be brick etched as the terraced buildings.

I am now going to start added some embossed panels out of thin card... I have found a supply of rub on decals from local hobby store I am going to check out tomorrow, so I can add pub name etc....

Whilst this was gluing, bit by bit... I have been etching in more cobblestones on the base board with my new Dremel bit ... I am managing about 48sq.inches per 90 minute session... and have worked out I am about 1/5th done so far, with about another 30-35hrs work to go... I told you it would be a long job!
