Building the great hall (3) ....

Had a think about the roof, decided to go with thatch. Stuck for material to use, then I found some felt offcuts in box, suitable enough.

re-inforced the basic roof with MDF formers.....
 cut the felt to approx size and stuck over the outside....
 trimmed then folded back and stuck on the underside; another double thickness piece added for the roof ridge ...
Next I made a small section of roof made up to improve the interior piccies, a piece of MDF with some cardboard roof joists, very basic but effective .....

 while in the zone got on with the basic items for the interior.., some benches and tables from thin cardboard ...

 final item a small fire pit, used some bits of clear plastic to represent flames - should work, we'll see how it looks when painted up ...
Well the big build is done, now theres all the painting to do ! 😁

  1. It's coming along very well! I hadn't seen anyone using felt to do a thatched roof before. It looks good. One could do it in a few rows/layers, too, for the cut thatched roof look if they wanted. The furnishings and interior stuff is looking good as well.
