This is fantastic, Dal. cheers  Really enjoying watching the build progress. I always love reading through build logs on plastic modelling forums, and this is very similar. Superb work on the windows and stairs. The skyline view has worked out really well. Looking forward to seeing it progress!
I'll have to send old Brace back there on a secondment once it's finished to check it out! Very Happy

Cheers Scott Very Happy , It is slowly coming together now. Everytime i build a dio, I have intended to do work in progress shots, but always seem to get carried away and forget to do them lol! . I am really pleased with the whole thing so far, just a lot of nagging final touches now, which always seem to take the longest Rolling Eyes . Really pleased you have enjoyed it cheers

it would be awesome for Brace to return for a visit, he would be welcome anytime, and he could tell the boys all about his new mates bounce bounce bounce

So, I have no new supplies yet, yesterday I spent the day removing no nails glue from old recycled wood from the old study. Very time consuming and boring Shocked . With that done, today I decided to use the cleaned up wood to finish a few bits, I popped in some skirting board and built a unit into one of the walls. I also caved and put a few bits back in the study. Here are a few pics cheers

After playing around for a while, I decided to start building a new sofa for the study, as you can see, its all built from scrap. I will place the pieces out as I build the sofa, in case anyone wants to have a go themselves cheers . So here is a dry run of the basic shape bounce

Even a few accessories really begin to bring an already impressive build to life! Or, a more life-like life!

Love seeing the progress on the sofa/settee. I need some 1:6 scale furniture but don't want to spend the money on pre-made stuff... even playline doll furniture is becoming expensive... so it will be interesting to see how the sofa turns out. Scrap wood and cardboard, of that I have plenty!

One potential issue I see with your approach to the bookcase: potential for glare. I was having that issue with some of the walls in my tiki bar build, so I hit the flat panels with a light mist of clear matte spray to cut the gloss. You have to be careful on computer-printed images to avoid causing runs in the ink, but with caution the matte spray helps reduce reflection potential. But be patient: light mist, multiple coats if necessary or desired, with adequate drying time in between.

Stylish door handle, I like it!

I also use a similar process but with a product called "Dull-Coat". It was recommended to me by a model-train enthusiast. I think its original purpose was to take the shine off plastic model kits but it works well on paper too.
It has the advantage of not requiring a heavy build up to work, just a light mist.
I have also heard of people using cheap hairspray for a similar effect, (I think they use this to kill shiny surfaces in photographic shoots for advertisements) but I myself have never tried it so I cannot vouch for its efficacy.

Hey SCU_HQ....are there any pics of your tiki bar on this site?
VERY interested in seeing it!

Thanks David, I am hoping the sofa will come together, but time will tell? Good point on the glare, if it gives me problems when I take better photos, it will be something I will have to look into cheers

Nice seams on the fronts of the arms and the sides of the back cushions. Did you sew them, or glue them?

The seat seems a little tall. In my opinion. Could be uncomfortable.

I’m loving that you’v added a few more bits Dal. I spotted the alien in a jar, it’s on the middle shelf it’s the jar with the bright yellow stopper and the little dark red alien in it.

Where will the magician poster fit? Crying or Very sad

Is that the Battle of Trafalgar above the fireplace?
