This was a custom built "vintage-inspired" Gothic roof church I built recently. I sprinkled a product called coco-tex on the roofs. I also included a vintage reproduction of the Padre I made. This is my biggest church I have ever built to date. Enjoy... :mrgreen:

Aww, thanks my friend Lynn! I really appreciate your compliment. I am working on a reproduction of my Hacienda Church right now, with bricks and all. Will be posted soon ;)

Clinton, I may have missed it. Did you publish your Hacienda church repro with the bricks?

Not yet Paul. I have yet to receive it in the mail. It's coming on a long journey on a freighter ship in a box with lots of other things from home. Should be here in a month or 2. Got it off eBay along with 4 other houses for only $13.50! I can't wait to see/touch/observe it for my repro build. I will keep you all posted when I have it in hand, but-- attached is the auction picture of it. No base or steeple, but no worries there. I will build those as well. Here's another pic of the one I have now, along with my windmill house. No bricks, but same design. Thanks for asking! :)

Regards,

Clint
