Scratch Building from Tibet to London!





Hi Chaps,

Its half term so the modelling time has been reduced but I have still completed 10 Perry Sudanese who are now acting as slavers for Darkest Africa and another 10 are waiting for greenstuff to be applied so they can be used in IHMN.

The buildings are coming along slowly, the larger blue styrene building has been a learning curve and should look acceptable once the windows and doors are fitted. The Tibetan farm will pass off as Indian or even arab so should be useful.

What have you Chaps been up to on the Victorian building front?

  1. couple of great buildings and I see you have been keeping the Sun up your way :) All we have is rain down here. I have been busy prepping a load of NWF figures ready for a mad painting frenzy over the winter. No buildings I am letting my Dad do the terrain building
    Peace James

  8. They look great. I'm still searching for what to do about my own. Considering buying 4ground or maybe scratchbuilding If I can find the nerve to have a go.

  9. Blue foam is the way to go Simon... there are some really talented people out there who will show you how to do this. Its just like painting, once you start it will be OK. I take a camera out with me, we are falling over Victorian buildings in the UK-once your plans are drawn it really is easy and very cathartic. Give it a go.

  12. Thanks Guys,

    the warehouse is now nearly finished and the base is ready. Sorry to hear about the garage clear out Gowan but I have been guilty of this myself. As soon as I throw something out I need it!
