Your cathedral is amazing! So much meticulous work is going into it. I love watching the project develop and can't wait to see the finished project.

Thanks, DFK. 
Hi everyone, here are the sides and the Eastern end of the cathedral to look at. For the east end, I made the background black to make the actual structure easier to see. And yes, the north and the south side photos were taken on two different days and in different lighting conditions.  I've lightened the windows in all pictures so that you could see the "stained glass" windows more easily. The South Transept Rose window colors are oranges and yellows for Saint Michael, and the North Side, they are green and blue for St. Uriel.

I love the clear story windows. Really cool. and the north and south door archways are well done.
Thankyou for sharing, Shiral.

@Shiral does excellent work. She's made a few of these structures over the years. And I am always impressed by how good they look and how well made they are ... art in that form isnt one of my gifts.

Shiral, the cathedral is beautiful, such painstaking detail, so elegant. I was trying to get a feel for how big it is. I could imagine Duncan or Thomas Cardiel saying mass inside for the king and his court. Thank you so much for sharing.

Well, if they all took shrinking pills, they  might be able to fit. =o) But they'd find it really cramped. And alas, the interior will be nothing like the exterior. I just can't see my way clear to try to create itty bitty groin vaulting. the exterior of the cathedral is quite extravagant enough in terms of how much decoration it requires.

To give you an idea, the base is about 11" wide x 17"long. lThe spire, which is the tallest point, is about 12.5" high. The two towers are about 9.5" high. The central part, which is the nave and the transept has walls 6" high by the time it has a roof the roof line will be about 8." The nave and the transept are 2" wide. Where the Nave and Transept meet are the widest part, and it's about 6" wide from end to end. The nave, from east end to west, is approximately 11" long  By the time I add the flying buttresses near the end of the process, they will add another inch of width at the sides, and about another inch of length at the eastern end.

More Cathedral Progress, today. I added the lower walls along the sides and the eastern end, and the five semi-circular chapels. Next phase will be roofing.

Wow, Shiral! That is fantastic. Love the east end and the side additions. I can not wait to see it with the roof additions.

A new update. Working on the roof for my cathedral.  Here it is with most of the supportive armature in place.  (No, this is not what the final roof will look like.) Just as in the real world "Measure twice (or thrice or four or five times) cut ONCE"  is a good rule to follow.

Beautiful!
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

Your cathedral is truly amazing. Can't wait to see it finished.

Got some new Cathedral pictures for you all. The cathedral now has a roof!  Most of what I still have to add are the flying buttresses, and other  decorative detailing. And yes, it's going to need some gargoyles, or Paddy won't think it's a proper cathedral.
