1:144 Scale Glencairn Cottage By Nell Corkin
This house is an example of the "Storybook Style" of architecture, popular in the U.S. after the first World War. Supposedly inspired by the villages of Europe, Storybook houses incorporate picturesque details and a variety of textures and materials.
This 1:144 version was made from 1/32" birch plywood and textured with acrylic gesso to give the appearance of stucco. The chimney stones and doorway are individual pieces of .020" and .015" strip styrene, with thick gesso added to simulate stone. The shingles are paper. The landscaping utilizes model railroad materials and natural stones.
Height to top of roof: 2 1/8"
