Very nice looking country church...well done!
Carl B Posted - 02/26/2021 : 09:14:50 AM
a sheet of blue foamcore I bought at Walmart

Hmmm. My local Walmart only carries 30" x 20" pieces.
Yours seems larger than that.

The church is looking like many we pass in our travels here in Michigan. Nice work, Fred.
sgtbob Posted - 02/26/2021 : 05:50:43 AM
As usual, you have nailed it. It looks just like it should.
Great job.

Michael Hohn Posted - 02/25/2021 : 10:51:10 PM
Looks like the real thing. It has a pleasant country style. You did a great job on the steeple.

That is a mighty fine looking church Fred'.. Very nice indeed'...Nice work as usual'..
robert goslin Posted - 02/25/2021 : 5:21:35 PM
Really nice progress Fred. I always like small country churches, and your rendition is looking very nice.
For scale bells, folks should also look in the craft or jewellery section of the 2 dollar shops.
However, I think you made a good choice to enclose the belfry. Although many are open, the majority seem to be enclosed with louvered sides. I assume to give weather protection, but let the sound out.

I'm no expert. but as the building is wood, I assume the roof should be wood or ashphalt shingles or corrugated tin is very common.
I think slate would only be used on stone or brick structures ?

Quick update.

I haven't decided on the roofing material for the steeple yet.
Terrell Posted - 02/21/2021 : 7:17:41 PM
Thanks, Bob. I think I'm making the right decision.

Carl, that's a sheet of blue foamcore I bought at Walmart several years ago strictly to use as a back drop.

Thanks, George.

George D Posted - 02/21/2021 : 4:22:50 PM
Nice looking sound sound slats, Fred. Good solution to your bell problem.

Carl B Posted - 02/21/2021 : 4:01:27 PM
Looks great so far Fred.

What is that "easy on the eyes" dark blue background? Is that a wall in your shop?
sgtbob Posted - 02/21/2021 : 3:18:21 PM
Fred, looks good to me. There are lots of old churches like that around here and it looks like
you are heading in the right direction.

Terrell Posted - 02/21/2021 : 1:56:43 PM
Slow but steady progress.

I debated for a while on whether or not to detail the rear. But I went with it.

And as you can see I've started on the roof.

I had fully planned on leaving the top of the tower open and add a bell. Good and good sized bells are hard to find. I had one I'd planned on using but when I got to looking at it I felt it was just too big. I did find one (in a pack of 72} that was a good size. But in thinking about it, and researching more, it seems the open tower is atypical. So I'm closing it in, with sound slats, more typical.

Terrell Posted - 02/17/2021 : 5:45:59 PM
Thanks, Bill and Mike!!

Chuck, glad you like the house.

Yeah, Frank, I think I'm mega'd out for a while.
Frank Palmer Posted - 02/17/2021 : 09:40:17 AM
I must confess this will make a terrific little build. Sort of a respite from you last few mega builds.
