Well I did intend to update on this once a week, however over the past couple of weeks things have got in the way and I haven”t actually done a lot. I also have a a couple of busy months a head so I’m not sure how much I will get done. I am going to try and update at least once a month.
After doodling for about 3 days I have finally decided on the designs for the roof interior. I wanted to include the good fairies in the design of the tower somewhere and here feels like the perfect place.
As you can see I need to paint them, which I am a little nervous about so I want to start it when I have plenty of time. They are based on the three good fairies from the Disney animated Sleeping Beauty. I know in the original tale there were more than three fairies. Each of the fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather have different shaped cloak clasps which is what I have based the design behind them on.
This is the other roof panel. As you can see it has a window. I need to order some more roof tiles and some ridging tiles as I haven’t got enough.
I have also put the floor boards on the floor. This is them in there natural state. I do intend to age them a bit.
Above is the Tower before I re – painted and added the brick to the inside of it. It also gives you some idea of how the Tower will stand once it is completed.
Above is one of the Tower walls painted and with brick work. I do like the brick work I think it looks really effective.
At least progress is being made even if it is slow. I hope you like it so far…
