More on the church!

Yesterday I made the tower bit on top. Here are the 6 pieces cut out:

And here they are stuck together. I used hot glue and taped over all the edges to make it nicer:

Next I had to make the onion dome. For several reasons, I realised this wasn't going to work, or it would be extremely hard, so instead I made a tiled dome:

And here is it all put together so far. The tower is not glued on:

I also painted the doors, and added knobs made of epoxy-putty, and cardboard crosses. Here is the whole thing (other then the roofs) with its first coat of paint:

Lately I've been noticing that my views have gone down - if anyone's reading this please comment and get other people to come along and join the fun :D

Thanks for looking!

Awesome job so far!
Just a thought...stain glass windows on the top tower windows would look amazing! You could probably pull it off by coloring on tracing paper or those clear transparency sheets (or something similar) cut to size and colored with markers or something.

Thanks Mike! It's a very cool idea that I hadn't thought about before, but as this is a simple, small Russian church you would find in a village. Of what I have seen, only the big ornimental ones have stain glass windows in Russia, so it wouldn't fit in with this small village one. Thanks for the thought though!
