Going to the Chapel and We’re

Ok so now and again  have to let Chris get some glory on my blog and to be fair I think he deserves some credit as not only is his models amazing but as of today he has been off the cigarettes for 24 days so I think even without the models he deserves a round of applause.

His project this time was a Church which is very apt considering that our daughter will be wed on Saturday 11th June, so without further ado the first 4 images are the Church in the making.

All the images are clickable so that you can get a better look at them and all are to the scale

4mm to the foot or 00 scale and he gets the model sheets from Scalescenes here

church3 church4

The next four images are of the finished model and once again he has worked his magic and added lights inside the Church to light up the stained glass windows.

Please leave Chris some love in way of a comment and he does read them all.

well done with the no smoking

PatsyB said...

I am amazed at what kind of talent and patience it must take to create something this gorgeous! All while still shaking from wanting a cigarette!!! Wow! Nerves of steel. When I quit, I was a complete "B___ch" for weeks!! Not even the dog would stay around me!! Be very proud of yourself! I read that cigarettes are a harder addiction to kick than heroin!! Hooray for Chris!!

Your models are amazing Chris, I don't know how big the church is I don't know what oo means? But it must have taken a lot of patience and effort. I love the lighting, it makes it look so real, well done. Keep up the good work with the ciggys Chris, I did it so you certainly can, well done!!

I love this church, such a clever builder. Thank you for the link off to buy the terraced houses lol.
Congrats on giving up the cigarettes.

Candy said...

Congratulations Chris on 24 days without lighting up!
Congratulations to both you and Jak on the marriage of your daughter this Saturday!
NOW to the church - OMGoodness!!!!
The details are amazing. What AWESOME work you have done. I can even see the hymns on the board, and other wonderful wee details.
Absolutely LOVE the whole thing - but the stained glass windows and lights are most beautiful. Have no idea how you make your models? The time involved must be huge.
It really looks like stone with slate roof and all. AMAZiNG!!!
