Tiling the roof and colonnade

12. The model is now tiled and looking more like a Villa with every passing hour. Up to now, I think I had spent about four to fives hours working on it, 11. Thin card was now cut into strips with tile designs drawn on them, these were layered on top of one another to make a roof effect. A jagged edge would give the roof a weathered look.

10. Tony shows off his new colonnade. Well done Tony, that must of been hard work putting that up. 9. Using Tony as a height guide, I cut measured lengths of wooden dowel to make an open Colonnade for the front of the house. Getting the spacing right was tricky and Tony was no help at all, claiming that maths was for Greeks and that all Greeks should be burnt, that front porch was hard work working with that little nutter. I was tempted to let the thing fall on his head, but he was proving to be too useful, for the time being at any rate.

Even before it's painted, the top pic shows just how good the villa looks already. Can't wait to see it completed.
