Dovecotes - Pigeonniers - Colombiers

Just finished PasKal's great model "Pigeonnier de Valence d'Agen", available on "Le Forum en Papier". I'm hoping he can be persuaded to create some other pigeonnier models, they lend themselves well to dioramas from lots of different eras and urban or rural landscapes.

That's a beautiful diorama. The more you look, the more you see, Wonderful attention to detail, including the spiked speedwell(?).

One more detail...

Wanted to add a pic of the old car wheel abandoned under the pigeonnier.

My attempt at lavender. I found several pics of pigeonniers in the background of lavender fields, so I thought I'd give it a try. That a little over 1300 stems (but who's counting?). :-)

Thanks for the explanation. As you can see, I am not very knowledgeable about garden herbs and wildflowers, but I know what I like, and I like that lavender.

Hi All,

And hi, Aldo Ross. Well done on your timber braced masonry Pigeonnier. Fine weathering on your many-shingled roof, too. I can smell the lavender from here.

If PasKal is looking for other ideas regarding interesting pigeon houses, he might like to know about the pigeon house on the stern of America's first aircraft carrier, the USS Langley, CV1. As I was unable to find a photograph of the house as originally built, the attached photograph shows the old pigeon house after all the poop had been swept out and it had been made fit to serve as the executive officers quarters.

In the days before carrier aircraft had effective radios, pigeons were placed aboard the planes before takeoff. After paper messages detailing position and observations were attached to their bodies, the pigeons were released from the planes to fly back to the Langley. A short-lived program, the Langley pigeon house remains an odd quirk in the history of American naval aviation.

Pigeons on the boat, afloat.

Score and fold,

Thumb Dog

I am gob smacked!

What a great model - a very different subject, exquisite detail and overall beautifully executed.

Superb!
