Real Name

  1. From the album: Le chateau de Sire Gabriel

    Dans la partie octogonale du château, j'ai construit un escalier en colimaçon. In the octagonal part of the castle, I built a spiral staircase.
  2. From the album: Learning Half Scale with the Fairfield

    Bought open, but complete kit from Goodwill for about $15.00 in October 2013. Decided to start work on the Fairfield after all the winter holidays.

    From the album: Upholstering Half Scale

    Just finished upholstering this half scale sofa. Now to get back to work on building the Fairfield.
  4. From the album: Upholstering Half Scale

    Applied micro-suede (polyester blend fabric) with strips of double stick (non-acid) tape ("therm-o-web" is one brand). I just looked at the receipt and the fabric was (gulp) $16.99 per yard, but cheaper with coupon discount. So glad each sofa takes so little fabric. Painted the trim with Testors paint. The plastic sofa, which I found in a thrift store, is marked 2007 Mattel Made in China. I plan to use it in a half scale room setting, just haven't figured out which one yet.
  5. From the album: Le chateau de Sire Gabriel

    les remparts sont amovibles pour modifier la géométrie du château. the ramparts are removable to change the geometry of the castle.

  6. From the album: Le chateau de Sire Gabriel

    Voici le château enfin terminé. Au milieu de la cour, il y a une prison (demande spéciale de mon neveu). Je lui ai offert ce château pour son 5ème anniversaire. Here is the castle finally finished. In the middle of the courtyard, there is a jail (special request of my nephew). I offered this castle for his 5th birthday.

  7. From the album: Le chateau de Sire Gabriel

    Après deux couches de peinture grise, j'ai fait plusieurs brossages à sec avec du noir, du blanc et du gris foncé. After two coats of gray paint, I made several drybrush with black, white and dark gray.

    Les marches de l'escalier sont collées aux murs mais aussi à un poteau central. The steps of the staircase are glued to the walls, but also to a central pole.

  16. From the album: Upholstering Half Scale

    My second attempt at upholstering a plastic sofa with the micro-suede fabric. This plastic sofa has no markings. Also found it in a thrift store. I used a couple of layers of thin quilt batting for the cushion which did raise the height of the seat.

    first floor interior so far

  18. From the album: My Grandparents' Houses

    Semi-completed half-scale wall house. The openings (doors, windows) are all correct half-scale, but the ceilings seem a bit high (Lundby furniture feels the right size, but looks odd next to the doors). It was found with all of the Houseworks finishing components tucked in the rooms, still in their boxes. Some of the paper has been ripped, and one carpet removed. Fully wired, though unsure to what degree it works. I've got plans for this one...

    The Prancing Pony

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I've about finished all of the gold detailing. The is a little left to do on the wheels, but they needed another coat of paint first Painting the gold detailing was painstaking and time-consuming. I used a 10/0 brush for most of it, and a dental pick to clean up the whoopsies. It took a little over 8 hours to do all the gold you see here. Some of these pieces have gold relief on the opposite sides as well. But it's time to start gluing!!!

    The Prancing Pony

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    The wagon is now glued together and I'm working on some finishing touches. This is a shot of the interior. It's done in dark stain with all the relief carvings painted gold.
