The Medieval, Tudor and early Jacobean combo

Standard

Growing – The Long Gallery

The idea for this long and narrow room is to have it in a ‘T’ shape, with the longer piece (which isn’t the stick of the ‘T’ but the hat!) running right across the back of the model and the other piece going from approximately the centre to the front.

Am making valiant attempts at building the Long Gallery as though it had existed in mid Tudor period and has had a make-over internally to latest Jacobean styling.  So, perhaps the Tudor gallery had a coombed ceiling with exposed beams and with only a small, long area reaching any height.  Now, with new fashions coming in, they’ve upgraded part of it to have a flat ceiling, leaving part of the ‘T’ section with coombing.  (Link to photo example of on Flickr)  Don’t laugh, but that’s the working theory to-date.

The new external wall is at one end of the modernised leg of the Long Gallery running across the whole of the back width of the model and has my usual strangely fuzzy window glazing – having added a little thin glue mix to make glass wavy.

The wall needs four small timbers in the top pink, rendered area and, as you can see, the end of the wall needs fettling. This leg of the gallery sits over part of the Great Hall, just visible in the gloom below right.

Longer shot showing where the bits fit, though the join to the detachable part of the Great Hall complex awaits completion at the top floor. Some day.

    • Particularly like the shots where you can make out what I take to be a Lautrec in the back – adds that depth of field and contrast with the bones and lighting 🙂

      Glad you like my messing about – it’s really more theatrical than authentic, trying to give a mood/setting sort of thing. Thanks v much for dropping by. All the best 😉
