Brussels Marketplace and Town Hall - MaKit - 1:303 [FERTIG]

Thanks Robi, It was just luck after a long time looking for the model. Kept checking eBay here and in Europe, but no luck. Zeist Bouwplaten had one for sale, but at 250 Euros just a bit too much. Also noticed that there was one on eBay in the UK that went for over 100 Euros but without the Town Hall. Someone in the Netherlands on a now closed Forum mentioned he had an extra model, so sent a PM asking if he wanted to sell and my nephew in the Netherlands handled the transaction and shipping. The ...

Brussels Marketplace and Town Hall - MaKit - 1:303 [FERTIG]

Thank you Helmut. I agree with you about the beauty of the Grote Markt. I have become very fond of the buildings during the last eight months of construction and it means even more after the tragic and senseless events of yesterday. My thoughts are with the people of Belgium and especially Brussels. I also want to thank everyone that used the "Thanks" button. Regards, Fred

Hi All, Some final photos. Decided not to use cobblestones and used a light gray textured board instead. Added the Flower Carpet that is created every 2 years. These 2 are from 2012 and 2014. Fred

The buildings are now all complete. Will still have to add cobblestones to the square and the streets and then maybe a few more surprises. Fred

Hi All, Finally the Town Hall now has the statue at the top of the main tower. This has been quite a build, but well worth it. Some more photos. Fred

Thanks Ulrich. Once the Town Hall is finished, need to find cobblestones for the base and have a few other ideas to finish it off. Regards, Fred

Brussels Marketplace and Town Hall - MaKit - 1:303 [FERTIG]

Hi All, Another weekend and some more work on the model. Finished off the rest of the building and started to add the roof on Saturday. Added cardboard to the building walls for support, but decided the roof didn't need it. BIG mistake! Also constructed the roof as one piece. Another mistake. After glueing it on the building and it wouldn't fit right, decided to remove it. Lucky no real damage to the completed sections. Reprinted the roof pieces and started again on Sunday. This time added cardb...

Hi All, Jan, glad to see that you have joined the thread. It's been an interesting journey building this model. Finished the dormers on the front of the main building this weekend. Decided to leave the towers till later and will start on the rest of the building next. Regards, Fred

Hi All, Well, back to dormers. Managed to get the top row on the front of the building completed this weekend. First photo shows the 3 different size dormers for the front. Part 32 is the top row. Basically, all the dormers (marketplace and town hall) are constructed the same way. Regards, Fred

Hi All, Added the roof to the building last weekend. Roof was totally reinforced with chipboard to take all the dormers. Yes, those white spaces are dormers. Did manage to put 3 on the back together with a couple of small towers and chimneys, so only 110 more to go! Regards, Fred

The Town Hall

Hi All, Back to Brussels and the next phase, the Town Hall. 8 sheets of about 300+ parts. 113 dormers for the roofs. Decided to use templets to the interior of the building for strength. Will do the same to the roofs. Don't think they will survive trying to glue all those dormers if I don't add some backing. Regards, Fred
