Anyway, the Village Chapel. In this first pic, you can see the sheer size of the finished build; that teeny-tiny figure in the foreground is Van Fampi, the same renowned interior designer who appeared in my post on the DGM Pub ( dave-graffam-models-1-pub ).

As it is a BIG build, I made a change to it in an attempt to ease storage - namely the steeple is removable and fits inside the main body of the church when not in use. Speaking of removable parts, this next pic shows all the roofs removed along with the steeple taken off and you can just about see my beginning of applying interior decor. I (and VtG) have mentioned the layers used in DGM models and the interior wall you can see below shows this at its best I think. I've used the exterior wall, with all layers hidden, except for the same windows I used when I printed the exterior walls. IMO this creates a great plaster/whitewash finish, with a bit of accumulated dirt. You can also see on the floor some of the other bits that I've printed to finish the interior.

the windows can't be seen through and don't get me started on the doors!!"
|Van Fampi is very glad to leave this half-finished build ...|
This is another great model from DGM, that I'm glad I got. It is very imposing when built, and using the layers once more, you can have a "stone" finish (as I've used), brick or clapboard (wooden planks) and as you have the options of foyer/annex/tower or not you can have many different builds.
edited: I forgot, I have the DGM 'Cottage' assembled as well, so I may well do a post on that
