Adding another building
« on: July 15, 2019, 04:39:45 PM »
Howdy partners! Just started to add another building to my town. A hotel / saloon. This is a two story but the kit did not have the interior for the second floor so I decided to add the details and another floor. In the pictures you can see the doll house trim I used to support the second floor. I am trying to use plexiglass for the floor on the second level with wood texture printed from the computer and then glued to the plexiglass. Hopefully the advantage to this is no warping, thin but strong and lightweight. Will keep all informed on how this works out.

Great start! Can't wait to see the finished version.
"One of My Men Became Restless" focuses on 15mm Horse & Musket periods and 25mm Horse & Musket, Fantasy, Horror and Victorian everything! Occasionally there'll be stuff of related interest but it's mostly a painters blog.  See it all here: http://flashman14.blogspot.com/

Many a hidden gem to be found in the doll house stores - if one is man enough to enter.   :D

Nice work.   Interiors were always a step too far for me but some of these kits really lend themselves to it.
