Having quite a few WWII figures painted up I decided to start putting a bit of scenery together. Earlier today I found a sheet of foam board which I bought months ago and completely forgot about!
Armed with a ruler, pencil and craft knife I spent a few hours in the shed and cut a few pieces out in the hopes of producing a farmhouse and barn which eventually will share an enclosure.
Here's a few pics of the progress so far...
In places I've removed the paper covering and scribed stonework onto the model. These will represent places where the buildings' rendering has fallen off. Once the window casings and doorways are done the whole piece will be textured (except the exposed stonework of course). I'm experimenting with different texturing methods at the moment but the favourite is a mixture of household emulsion and sand. The windows etc are made from tongue depressors (big lollipop sticks!) which are trimmed and cut to size.
Anyway, that's all for now. I'll post a few more pictures as the model progresses.
