I wanted to have a Russian church to match the meagre village houses I previously made and finally found an design example which could fit upon the small bases I require. So unlike the previous MDF buildings I started with a foamcore frame. Took an evening (Ok to be honest, a very long evening and into the early morning) to finish the structure and wood walls.
The onion dome is the quintessential look of the Russian Orthodox church. Mine is a wooden drawer knob taken from a cabinet. (Geez, I hope the wife doesn’t notice!). The dome shape was built up with a bit of harden clay holding a makeshift balsa wood cross.
