PostSubject: Hello from Norwich   Fri May 22, 2009 5:01 am

Hello everyone
I am Rebecca, and I live in Norwich in the east of England.
I have several dolls houses - periods ranging from Edwardian to Art Deco to modern. I also have a gypsy caravan, beach huts and more. They are mainly 1/12 scale, but for the fairly obvious reason that I have run out of space, I am moving to 1/48 scale.
As well as collecting minis, I also like to make them, mainly in polymer clay, although I am happy to try most kinds of crafts providing there isn't too big a risk of chopping off a finger, as I am fairly clumsy.
It is nice to see people here from so many different places.
Rebecca

Hi,
I also live in the East of England in Peterborough. Your houses and other properties all sound interesting.

Hi Rebecca nice to meet you. I don't know how you manage 1/48th scale as I find my fingers too big for 1/12th at times lol!

Cheers Linda

Hello, it is nice to find other people in East Anglia here (sorry I don't know your name).
And Linda, you get used to 1/48, really. It does look daunting, but once you have been doing it for a very little while, 1/12 looks ginormous.

[size=12]Hi Rebecca,
I know what you mean about everything lookig gi-normous after working in 1/4 scale. Only done one project so far in that scale, but going back to 1/12th afterwards everything looked to big and I had to keep checking it.[/size]

Hi Rebacca
My name is Chris, lovely to hear about your houses, I have a waterwheel cottage, that I have got set up in the war years, I also had bought by my husband last week a really nice room box, but its different in that its got a roof, all done in wooden tiles, and made to look tudor ish, he bought it from a shop in Scarboro, where a lot of their pieces are one offs. I have not got around to deciding what theme to do, a haberdashary or some kind of cluttered shop I think.
I like the idea of your Gypsy caravans, where do you get them from?

Hello Chris
Nice to hear from you and your miniatures sound lovely. Do you have pictures?
I am so sorry, I can't remember where my gypsy caravan came from although I expect I bought it at a local fair here in East Anglia somewhere. I have seen a few at different fairs. I think they are probably becoming more popular as people want to try something different from a house.
