Time is a scarce resource at present, but I was passing our local model railway shop a few days ago and realised that my village was missing something vital, a village church. This is a plastic kit from Dapol and is I believe an ex-Airfix production. I had one, about a million years ago, but rather foolishly left it on top of a gas heater with the result that it became rather wonky rather quickly.
I also recall that storing it in a manner that preserved the crosses was also a problem.
I swiped this picture from the Dapol website and it looks like a good paint scheme to me, not too dark. I'm struggling to date this particular example. It looks early Victorian to my eye,but I know nothing of architecture. It occurs to me that the village should probably also have a non-conformist hall.
I'm not entirely sure when I'll get a chance to make a run at putting this little beacon of light together, but it has been run through the dishwasher and is sitting on the bedside table with some glue and a craft knife.
I shall take a leaf out of Luke's book and in patience possess me my soul.
