Below is my 1st serious attempt at scratch building a building. My only prior attempt was making the quick & easy hobo shacks featured in my 1st Strange Aeons post. But with Skrapwelder's guidance & gifts, & lots of shavings left all over the living room floor, I have completed the Church of the Eternal Flame/Eye/[insert your favorite ominous but abiguous adjective here].
The Church elders are keen recyclers, so are happy to use abandonded buildings for their meetings.
Plasticville Small Church. I picked one of those up, but decided I wanted a more American rural looking building with clapboard siding, instead of the rough stone or plaster siding that the Plasticville church had. So I traced the Plasticville church & used it as a template to build this one.
The wooden planking at the front roof eaves was originally a way to hide the fact that I'd trimmed too much off the peak of the roof, so there was a big gap there. But now I'm going to draw something on it, not sure what.
Initially, the inside of the building look very rough, lots of badly cut foam core edges. So I decided to finish the windows & inside too. I added the planked floor & walls, & raised dais with the altar.
& every good church needs access to the crypts (or labyrinthian caverns) underneath the altar.
) original, I'm very happy with how it came out. Lots of fun to build.
Now just have to paint it.
