Folk architecture

Water Mill

Scale : 1:160
Author : Marián Hlaváč
Source : Vystrihovačky (book) (Perfekt)

I've been thinking about starting a folk architecture series for a while now. I chose this water mill to start with. This is the most published model of this author, it was published in the magazine Zenit, ABC, Fifík and the book (I built the version from the book).
I improved the windows on the models, which were just drawn a little more plastic and added a railing on the bridge. I used the horse carriage, bench and millstones from a windmill model by the same author (I'm finishing this mill right now, so it will be the second build in this series). I added grass, water, figures and trees and that's about it...If you play with it a bit, even such an old model can be turned into a pretty nice piece...a few photos:

I like the added details, they make a big difference.

I've made quite a lot of the ABC buildings and there seem to be hundreds that are still available.

Cheers
Mike

Thanks
...details are important because they make each model a unique work... even if I were to glue it again, I wouldn't put it together the same way and something unique would be created again...

The building itself is beautiful and the figures and additions made it really alive!

...thanks and I will add another building:

Windmill

Scale : 1:120
Author : Marián Hlaváč
Source : MIGAS

Another model in the folk architecture series. This was one of the first models I glued when it came out in Zenit magazine... so I gave it a repeat after some 35 years... The model is unmodified, I also glued accessories - a ribbed carriage, a ladder and millstones, I added grass, figures and trees, a few photos:
