The Ministry of Culture nears completion. The roof and windows have all been finished and the building has been based.
The base is 2mm MDF with individual paving slabs glued on to create the pavement. Time consuming but I am happy with the results and its a cheap method as I use the cardboard from Costa Coffee carriers.
The building has a final coat of Matt Rice Cake from B&Q Colours range.
Lidl Fine Modellers Paste is added around the base of the building this will be painted and weeds and rubbish will be added. Then I just need to add the Ministry of Culture sign to the front and this is ready.
This was inspired by a monument entered into one of the Guilds' build competitions. I thought it would look good as monument in the central square in Tcherbevan.
Again the base is 2mm MDF with Costa paving and Lidl Paste around the base. Just got to finish the base off and this is done.
Reports have come in that renovation work to the front facade of the Ministry of Culture are progressing on time and on budget. Andreivian craftsman have been working round the clock restoring the 19th century carved window frames and shutters and are nearing completion. There still remains around 60 wooden shutters to repair and replace but a spokesman from the Ministry of Culture confirmed that the work should be completed in the next few days.
Work continues to the 19th century facade
The new roof still needs to be fitted

The roof nears completion. The front porch erected in the 1960's has been removed and Andreivian craftsmen have restored the original 19th century doors to their former glory
