Window frames ready for priming.
The hi-tech spray booth.
Window frames primed.
Love the caravan. The sides look just right.
Shame the doors don't.
Will need to check actual window sizes against plan dimensions.
We have had that for real 1 to 1 scale houses from window companies that seem to use an oddly calibrated tape measure.
I have checked the actual window sizes against the dimensions - and they match perfectly.
So it's me that's c*cked things up. Which means I need to just re-cut just the door frames and the 'glass'.
I've added a primer and initial coat of colour to the caravan, and fixed the window frames to the 'glass'.
and I've just noticed the vent over the right-hand window has disappeared...
The plain end wall has not been attached yet as I need to slide the internal details in first, but I couldn't paint the outside with the inside in...
It will be easier to mask everything but the end wall once the inside is in and the end wall is fixed on.
I feel the need to add a couple of low body stripes...
The sickly green is a good match to the colour some off them come .
It's not the best green, I agree. It was a 99p spray can from a local hardware store, but a coat of a lighter green might improve things.
On the other hand, a couple of stripes, the grey windows frames and a red-tiles roof might help to tone it down somewhat.
I would go for a couple of cream stripes, it's the sort of thing the makers go for.
And a figure standing next to it with a can of petrol and some matches.
The client was offered a burnt out version, but opted for 'slightly weathered'.
What's slightly weathered, foxgloves growing out of the burnt out caravan.
Don't forget the crows on the roof. Very noisy.........I know this......'clicky,clicky, clicky'
I read that as cows not crows....
Some internal shots.
A rudimentary roof has been fashioned, just needs tiling and guttering to complete. The other end wall has also been added & painted.
Meanwhile, I've been contemplating some shop kits. These are based on several to be found in Truro.
The main front is 3mm ply, laser cut. The design gives a small vestibule to a side entrance, alongside a large opening for the main shop, and two smaller windows on the upper floor.
I'll add Silhouette-cut windows & door, plus the stonework around the door entrance, but leave the main shop door/window to the buyer's own choice.
I've stayed there.
Thanks Rob, that's the idea. We've stayed in a few over the years too, so I've tried to give a flavour of the luxury that's available.
Windows & doors.
