Another old Spanish building



Greetings everyone...This started life as a multicolored building, but it didn't go with the rest of the buildings, so I kept it down to two colors. Its actually sitting on one of the ceiling tiles  until I find a place for it to stay on a permanent basis.

  6. Another marvel; I love the idea that the owner has given it a coat of whitewash in the past, but now needs to think about another. It just looks so wonderfully authentic.

  7. In the first image - I actually thought it was a real building and not a model!

    Well done.

  10. Thank you everyone for the comments...it started out red and yellow with a bright blue door.
    looked cool, but stood out like a sore thumb so I had to tone it down a little. Ill post more shots of it once I find a place to put it. Thanks again.

  11. Again, you show us the reason you are a master at "distressing and aging" a structure. Great work, Capt.

  12. Excellent!
    Also suits very well the southern Portugal!
    The roof isn't scratch built, is it?

    Cheers

  13. Hello David, the roof comes in sheets...I do have one house where I used macaroni for the roof.

  14. This is absolutely fantastic. That round window, the way you've gotten the door to look weathered and beaten up and the overall texture of the building is impressive.
