    Thank you very much for the kind words!  Here I show you another example of, how to do something better...
    These are some red transparent parts of LEGO, left is original, right is edited...    
    ... the lantern frame is from the Chuck Wagon... http://www.showrods.com/showrod_pages/chuck_wagon.html
       
    ... and it fits...    
    ... this lantern, you can now just stick somewhere... But I would like to attach it, flexible...  ... for that, I flat press first the upper pin, with a flat nose pliers...     
    Then I drill a hole...    
    I cut one turn of a spring...    
    ... bent into a ring...    
    ... the ring comes through the hole, and was gently pressed...    
    ... the finished  taillight  lantern...    
    Hope, you like it.

    These are just regular, coated metal- earrings, found cheap in a jewelry store...    
    ... from this one...    
    ... I cut out...    
    ... a matching Ornament...    
    ... which I needed for this...    
    ... from the other earring, I cut another one...    
    ... on this, will hang later, the front lamp...    
    ... these two here, are also adapted to keep the rear, additional board...    
    ... and that's the rest, maybe it needs a bit of it, for whatever...      
    ... for someone it`s useless, for the other a treasure...

    The Li'l Gypsy Wagon- fork has openings, so I thought, I'd do that too...
    ... well, that was more difficult than I thought... ... to carve in the assembled state, was not a good idea...  ... so, from planned, rounded openings, emerged very fast, angulars...    
    Hope, you like it.

    Thank you for the kind words, Mike!
    Well, I'll probably buy two of them...

    For the round Windows, I had to try a little, until I could punch out the appropriate diameter... These, with the white protective film are made of Makrolon®, and these, with the blue are made of PET...    
    ... i turned four aluminum rings, with a small escarpment...    
    ... these are the parts required for a window...    
    ... primed the rings...    
    ... painted...    
    ... and installed at the back...    
    ... to the front...    
    ... and the view from the inside...    
    Hope, you like it.

    The house and roof are now united...     And here is another example, a lot of work that is at the end, not really noticed...
    I edit each spoke from the inner side with my scalpel knife, to let the whole appear a little slimmer...

    Thank`s Dan!    I had some time to finish this Roof...
    Dry brush with various Colors...   
    ... a little more refined...    
    ... from below / inside...    
    ... this is a metal sleeve...    
    ... shortened to the desired length...    
    ... and planted at the final Destination...    
    Hope, you like it.

     Initially, I thought the most difficult in this project, will be the roof.... ... simply bend a plate and stick it to the lodge... ... would be a possibility... ... but, well, what is about the structure? 
    Hmm... 
    It started with a "matching" PVC pipe...    
    ... edited it outside and inside on the lathe...    
    ... I cut it then in the length, slightly more than half of the diameter, about 2mm over the radius, and cut off a piece, about the same angle, on front and rear... ...  inside, the two lines show, where the house will have its place...    
    Outside, I first sketched with a scriber, a structure... Then I worked out the wells, first rough with my Dremel...    
    ... and after that, refined all with different files and sandpaper...    
    ... now it's ready and primed for painting...    
    Hope, you like it.

    Here is another detail, so that the chimney makes sense...... and for the cold days...
    ... an old barrel and a few small things...    
    ... complete and refined...     
    ... with some iron Color...    
    ... and installed in its place...      Hope, you like it.

    These are the holder of earring plugs...    
    ... and after I have these flattened in a vice...    
    ... I make from these, new hinges for the rear doors...    
    I sanded the primer in the interior...    
    ... in order to redecorate it... These are the new wallpaper- parts, cut from decorative paper...   
    ... slightly refined...    
    ... and finally wallpapered...

    Thank you, please excuse me, did not want to be blunt ...

    Thank you very much!
     

    Well, I do not always use the same brand, it depends entirely on what a result I would like...
     
    Here I used the colors of Fin by WACO

     
     
    Developed years ago for a traditional rustic style of painting known as 'Bauernmalerei', it is now a best for all hobby painting techniques, it provides excellent coverage and is ideal for wet-on-wet technique.
    These paints can be mixed with each other, once dry, this water-based product is resistant to abrasion, weathering and fading.
     
    But I also like the acrylic paints from the craft shop and try out a new one ...

    Great idea and, as always, fantastic execution, Fabrizio, I would love to have this one in real!

    Somehow, such builds vaporize me a lot of time in searching, choosing the right equipment and parts...  As in the following example... This is a window shutter made from LEGO...    
    Since I made the window first, the shutter was now too wide, I had to reduce it a bit...    
    ... and the same with four pieces...    
    ... primed flat black...    
    ... and then dry brushed...    
    ... and mounted on the window Frame...    
    Hope, you like it.

    Thank you very much for the Kind words!  Thank you for your efforts, Mr. Spencer, and yes, you game spoiler, it is this, but because botophucket made all the images disappear, I was asked if I could post one of my buildingthreads...
