The kind vicar had allowed me to take pictures and measurements and I found a brilliant android app which allows measurements to be entered onto a photograph. Now that's clever. I think so, but that sort of thing pleases me.
Of course, without incredible rubber man arms and a very long tape measure, estimating the height of the roof, tower and steeple (or anything above about 12/15 feet for that matter) is really hard because of foreshortening (if that's the right word) and the stone blocks being of variable size. In the end I have settled for something that looks about right for the nave walls and roof and will have a go at guessing the heights of the tower and spire once the nave is done.
So, beginning with the nave and after gratefully received comments on a previous post, the sides are of 30 thou styrene sheet. The stone surrounds for the windows were cut out separately and scored - the window frame is slightly larger than the window aperture.
The end walls followed the same process but with extra styrene sheet where the chancel and tower will attach.
Before sticking the whole lot together, Squadron filler was applied to smooth off the step between the window apertures and the stone surrounds. I tried Milliput but the quicker drying Squadron filler was more satisfying for an impatient person.
Now, windows. I don't know what to do. From the inside, the windows are beautifully detailed 19th century stained glass. I'm not going to add the protective screens but how best to represent the real thing?
