greetings to all...

this project has been in my "to be built file" for way too long...and now it's alive and well...but still in the raw cardboard state right now...primer, paint, glitter and final assembly will be next...

the design was inspired from bits and pieces of several different photos and drawings i've seen and saved from internet image searches...it's not unique or original...but i think it captures the look and feel of a quaint english village church...

stay tuned...i'll be posting the two pattern sheets later this week...

my very best regards...

update...4-23-2020...

here is a closeup of the window mullions...i cut them by hand with a sharp xacto knife out of card stock...they were then painted with a few coats of "emperor's gold" metallic craft paint...the window material will be stained glass printed paper or overhead projector sheet material...more details about them later...along with the pattern sheets...
