Building a medieval church #8

The never ending story...

Painting the church yard

Re-painted parts of the church and gave it all some drybruching...

Mounted the church to the yard base

Throught the gate

...Of course you can see that some parts are missing on the church...the supporting standard that made it possible for them to build the brick sealing inside the church

the medieval brick sealing in the Haraker church are still in place.


I have been told that Väserås Cathedral was a inspiration to the builders of Haraker church, so they built similar supporting standard as in this picture of the Väserås Cathedral.

Building me some supporting standard made of balsawood with texture paper on...

Supporting standards are in place one in each corner ans one along each wall . I also have built me a scaffolding for the workers that will try to finnish the wooden bell tower...

As they carryout major re-builds on the Haraker church during the 1450-1500 i thought it was a good idea to have my model "Under construction" as it would give more life to the modell....

last "work in progress" picture as I hope that the never ending story will find a end in my next Medieval chruch post later this week...
