With just two weeks to go until our next Nostalgia In Miniature Workshop, preparations are in full swing once more. We can now let you take a peek at what we'll be making as photos of the prototypes are finally complete.
This is The Little Vintage Hall and is the first of three workshops based on an old vintage hall theme. As always with all of our workshops, the project can be worked in either 1/12th or 1/24th scale and although it has been built in the style of a Victorian hall, we will be joining it in the 1930s era.
Above is the 1/2th scale version and participants will be given a choice of contemporary 1930s colours in which to decorate their little vignette. Polished floorboards, aged distempered walls and panelling plus a few odd cracks here and there, will be the order of the day. The noticeboard includes all kinds of interesting information such as an undertaker's advert and various committee rotas. As we decided to stage this hall specifically in 1939, there are some early wartime posters too.
And this is the smaller 1/24th scale version.
The whole project has been great fun to do with lots of scope for the participants to make this vignette something very special.
