I read an article in the June edition of BRM where the author had resin cast the barge boards for a station building. I had wondered how to make the ornamental stonework running along the top of the walls of the church and this looked like a solution (as well as being something new to play with which is a bonus). Making the short section out of styrene strip for the latex mould was very fiddly but the final casting is pleasing. I have probably saved no time at all - each cast takes 30 minutes to dry - but am very glad I do not have to handcut the rest of the stonework.
Meanwhile, the nave and tower are in progress and some of the buttresses are partly completed.
What an educational, absorbing and fascinating build this is turning out to be. Always the pessimist, I am gloomily anticipating the day it is finished.
