Hi Sabrina! I love your enthusiasm! Reminds me of me a few years back! First thing - I LOVE Bromley's - I have their 1:12 brick, stone and quoin stencils and use them with either spackle or paint thickened with a thickening compound that artists use. Second thing is probably something you'll need to learn yourself. So many of my projects I've planned down to the 'enth' degree and bought everything I figured I'd need for it. Very rarely have I used all the things I've bought! I did a Gypsy wagon from McQueenie Miniatures (another UK shop and they have amazing kits) and bought all this trim etc and then didn't use a single bit of it! For my latest - a mid 18thC Parisian Apothecary based on an actual tv series set - I studied all the pics I had and ordered everything I figured I'd need for it. Again - I used very little of what I bought and ended up buying more on and off of what I DID want to use throughout the year it took me to complete. I know you do need stuff to get started, but also understand that everything tends to take longer than you think it will. After all, paint has to dry, glue has to set. You will have time throughout the build to purchase what you need for the next step and as you go your thoughts and opinions may change. And bear in mind that I'm in NZ and most of what I order takes at least a fortnight to get to me! Good luck - so looking forward to seeing how you get on!
