Heddal Stave Church - WIP

Picked up the Heddal Stave Church I started playing around with during Aaron’s stream earlier this year.

(Let’s see if this becomes yet another long churning project like the Dodge Charger…)

Originally I posted in the stream announcement thread, Modeling the Stave Church live! - #18 by thomthom

When I left it off I had adjusted the volume model to a 3D scan:

Today my internet connection went out, so I had to figure out something “offline” to do. Turns out it makes me actually do stuff. I started to flesh out some of the facade details.

This summer I had the chance of visiting this church, so I got a nice set of reference photos for all sorts of details you normally don’t see in most photos you find.

Realized I’d messed up one of the rounded roofs, so I need to correct that before I continue.

“Fancy Butt Shingles!” Now that would be an obscure but interesting plugin to develop.

Sounds very painful.

Don’t… I’m trying very hard not to write new extensions for this! Despite manually placing thousands of shingle tiles is screaming for an extension. Must. not. write. new. extension!
