Chapter 19.1 ~ Unboxing Busch 1667

(March 5, 2022)

 

On 25.5.2019, I bought myself this dilapidated house, meant for a spot on the Cochemer Bahn, somewhere in town at the utmost left hand corner.

It lay for almost 3 years in the cabinet.

 

Since I finished the Module of Stift Cochem  in Januari, there was nothing at hand for the moment being.

So... time to unboxing the 'Verfallenes Fachwerkhaus'!

Chapter 19.2 ~ Painting & Weathering

Let the pictures tell their tale...

(March 5)

 

 

 

 

If only I knew that the acrylic paint would curl the thin layer of wood... 

 

 

Now there's some dilap... dapil... errr... something-dation

Chapter 19.3 ~ Building the dilapidated

(March 5)

 

It fellt like my first Busch experience with the Forsthaus

 

 

 

I gave the interior an off white layer, since one can look inside. 

 

Not prescribed, but I gave the first floor a wall and 'carpet' of wooden temnants. These parts (beams and tiles) came out of the sachet...  

 

... however, the rest I added myself: grit, grass, moss, sand, etc.

Chapter 19.4 ~ Then there's the attic!

(March 6) 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Nh wi'out a decent co' o' coffee!"

Chapter 19.4 ~ Stone fittings

(March 7)

 

  

 

 

 

"Even broken glass can reflect a clear blue sky!" 

 

 

It turned out that the printing of the stones considering the shade was partly turned upside down... 

 

 

... alas! 

 

 

And here you can see the flip-flop right in the middel of the printing

Chapter 19.5 ~ The rooftop

(March 12) 

 

 

The bike was not included, but the idea itself came from the very front cover of the box (see top).

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added rafters on both sides with remnants of the wood 

 

 

 

Finished!
