    Well, I am back on workbench now that my teeths allow me to smile again. :D

    Here is a short preview on my on going diorama. Many ideas are still in my mind only, before I can say this is achieved and update my gallery.
    Still having built main structure is an important step I wanted to share here.

    Hope you like it.

    That’s an excellent start indeed, Milo. It’s good you added some furniture for the photo as it reveals the size of the hall. I would reconsider the material you chose for the thatching. To me it seems that the material you chose is a bit too large (is it straw?).
    Sorry for my criticism, but I think that’s why you posted the pic. – I have an idea which material would fit better, so just contact me.

    Well, I think our friend Milo was inspired by this image. The roof is made of planks, not straw. Right, Master Milo? :rolleyes:

    Certainly, excellent star! :)

    I just referred to the thatching which usually is not inside of a roof ,Master Erchamion ;)

    Hall size is 30x40cm.
    Main driven idea is to see what goes on inside this Hall.
    I limited building size by not adding the entrance hall before fireplace.
    A complete Hall should be 1/3 longer when you look at Tolkien’s illustration: [imgz url=http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/553_berons_hall_jrrt.jpg]http://mmp.faerylands.eu/uploads/thumbs/553_berons_hall_jrrt.jpg[/imgz]

    It is straw. I just bought a small brush and cut straw out of it to needed size.

    Almost true. Tolkien’s illustration is in B&W. :P

    I see no planks on original drawing, so no planks on diorama :rolleyes:

    Sure. 😆

    I thought you meant COMPLETELY thatched roof … :)

    Now that turns out to become funny.
    First of all I have to state again that Milo’s start of that project is excellent from my humble point of view. – Then I just wanted to give him advice about the thatching of the hall (which cannot be seen in the well-known pictures). – I just was referring to what I can see in his picture at the top left, which reveils a start of how to hatch the hall. And that material is straw, as he admitted a short time ago.
    I was just wondering about proportions. Even if you split straws and then place them on that table inside the hall, they’ll be far too large.
    Well, Milo, you’re right saying that the focus of the diorama, of course, is on the inside of the hall. I just wanted to help a bit with some detail concerning proportions. That’s why I sent down Beorn to my cellar to explain what I mean. I’m sure he’ll be back soon.
    Alas, I like this.

    As my language is limited, n’est pas? I better try to explain visually, if you don’t mind.
    So, you need an old hand brush (not the common ones with plastic bristles, of course), you don’t even have to paint them, just give them a touch with watery black.
    So, in this short time my Beorn was able to show you … what I meant

    Anyway, by now I guess you know what I was talking about. – And mind, please, this is just an idea to help you with your project, neither criticism nor advice I would ask you to follow. – I just tried to help a bit (not forgetting Beorn’s support in visualizing this). 😆
    Huooommm … I like such things to happen …

    . . . oh my goodness . . .the handbrush is gone.
    In this case it is interessant to know, what the Entwife would say . . . ne pas?!

    Anyway a brilliant idea, my friend . . .

    The hand brush as thatched roof is an excellent idea :)
    But It is hard to find in my area. They are usually plastic….:(

    Hm … this is one of my own hand brushes … no matter what Mrs Tree says … she keeps hers for herself and uses them differently.

    That’s the same problem with old hand brushes around here … so, if you find one, better buy three … they’re also good for a first step to to have reeds at a watery edge, by the way – though that’s a different matter … ;)
