Thanks for the links Dave…

Unfortunately it’s not the cobble stone I want to replicate. The high tech is too regular regarding the sizes of the stones. At least to replicate a 1920’s scene that is…
The Japanese guy is really good at lots of things but my guess is he never has seen a Flemish cobble stone street in his life. The bonding to start with is complete against all logic. But the idea is OK.
The place where I live is called “zegelsem” and every year we have “the Zegelsem Cobble Stone Fest”. Many street are cobble stone streets and that’s the pattern I want to get on my display. Will post some Zegelsem pictures later.


Back to the buildings…

Last night I managed to finish a side wall prototype that will be used for making a silicone mold. I need at least 7 blank side walls. All bricks measure 2.4 x 0.80mm and are hand carved using PVC foam sheeting. Up to now I’ve not seen anything H0 scale that comes closer to the real thing so hand-carving seems to be the only solution.




Also made one more window to see if this masking tape technique needs improvement. Looking at the building from normal viewing distance gives a fine result. It is definitely a not freshly painted window...


Thanks for watching and
Greetings from the Flemish Ardennes…
