HO Scale Diorama & Christmas Village

Protestant Church – Building Improvements

protestant_ch_052015

This is a quiet season for Oak Valley, so I am taking the opportunity to improve the buildings, all of which came from dollar stores over the years. For the most part, they are very light weight porcelain or plaster with opaque exterior walls. It takes a LOT of layers of paint to make the walls “solid,” and I am working on them one at a time, as well as adding more detail and contrast.  They are not true HO scale, nor are they detailed like HO scale plastic models.  I want them to be pleasing to the eye, day or night.  I’ve completed 14 buildings, and have a few to go.
