Very nice. I'm just finishing off the 15mm Normandy houses you did for me. Pictures soon.

If I was independently wealthy I'd have a 20mm/1-72nd scale model of the St. James Church made. The only known contemporary image of the building is a hand drawing displayed at this link:

Sigh.

Wooden clapboard? In 20mm it would not be that expensive, it isn't a large building.

Alas, it's a brick building, single story with a buck side building and wood shingle roof on both. I imagine the mold for that is quite a bit more detailed.

Brick, do you know the bond used?

It is a certainly within reach of my skills even being brick and 20mm.

I'd imagine it was typical mortar construction for the area/period.

I do not have any doubt you can make an excellent reproduction. My problem is affording it, given the demand for St. James Church models planet-wide (one) I don't think you'll sell enough to make it affordable.
