1:24 moldings?

9 posts in this topic

Hi!!

It's been almost two weeks since I ordered my first dollhouse and I already recieved it and dry fitted yay! :D

Right now I'm dissasembling everything as I decide any modifications on rooms and so on. But I need some help on moldings.

I already have some wallpapers ready to print, but I would like to know where can I buy 1:24 moldings? All I can find (at least near me) are 1:12 moldings (crown molded or simple).

Do you have any idea and tips?

Thank you!

It's easier (in my opinion) to make 1:24 moldings from a lightweight card like posterboard and build up the layers for millwork, and then paint it.

Congratulations on a successful dry fit!  Most of the wood/molding places I use are in the U.S.  If shopping in the UK works for you, a Trifle Small has some building components in 1:24, including moldings:  https://www.atriflesmall.co.uk/124th-scale/124th-scale-diy-and-decoration/124th-scale-building-componants   The owners generally ship quickly, and are very nice to work with.  Also, when you look online, not every store labels their molding and trim as 1:24 scale.  If you look at the size of the pieces, smaller widths can work for half scale.

Thanks for your response!

I think I prefer to buy them as Deb said, since making a crowned shape with cardboard may be too difficult,,,

Will take a look on Triffle Small. Thank youuu!

Manchester Woodworks has a good selection and nice wood, but they can be a bit slow to ship.  I have been waiting a month for my last order, and they are not responding to emails.

That's a tragedy over here. Glad you told me they are slow at shipping because I'm so anxious (in a good way) to see my hoise done I would panic! thank you!!

I have also used Northeastern scale lumber

Good reminder!  I got my cherry wood strips for a floor from them, and they were absolutely beautiful.

    • What type of molding is this
      By Nowissleepytime
      I just got this dollhouse to rehab and it’s missing some of the molding that connects the roof with the walls does anyone have any ideas what the name is called?
    • Finally finished my Sagamore Hill Library room box
      By Debsrand56
      Finally finished the Sagamore Hill Library room box in half scale.  It took 16 months, which was a little longer than the year I predicted at the outset.  For my final set of pictures, I included some comparison shots with the real room.  You can see them here:   http://www.greenleafdollhouses.com/forum/?app=gallery&module=gallery&controller=browse&album=8269   
    • Maison Ginny — Red Cottage Miniatures Hill View
      By Dalesq
      Yesterday was an abundance of minis! It really doesn’t get any better than that, just sayin'.
      Not only did I get the wonderful handbag and book from Deborah (Debsrand56), I also got the new kit I’d ordered from Shannon at Red Cottage Miniatures (shannonc60). So I dove right in and started dry fitting.
       
    • Half Scale Greenleaf Tennyson
      By heidiiiii
      Last year I difficult as I dealt with breast cancer diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation. I had lost myself for many years to illness but I am different now. I want to try to get back into what I liked to do. I am going to start with this little Tenny. I have to try to coax my muse out from under the floor boards so we can start to get some ideas. First step, clean off the table. 
    • Did I Mess Up? I sanded: Oh, NO!
      By HalfScaleDollhouseLOVER
      Hello,
      I've been reading that a person should not sand before painting with at least a primer. But my half scale RGT Front-opening Country Victorian arrived so rough and I was getting splinters from handling it. Besides I heard that Brown paper can be used to sand a dollhouse and my kit arrived covered in the stuff. I thought it would be the best to kill two birds with one stone and I used the brown paper to sand it down.
      Some pieces are still a little tougher than I would have liked, but I just saw the recommendation that a person not sand until after painting a first coat.
      Did I ruin my kit?
      So concerned! Thank you!
