I would imagine that there is a lot of hours invested in your buildings. Any step by step guide available?  :)


Hi Tim, not as such but I am planning to do one for Matakishi to post on his Teahouse.

Here are links to the earlier models made last year. In some of the posts I mention how they are made.

If you want more precise details PM me.

In the meantime I am starting the Governors buildings on friday and I'll try and remember to take some WIP shots.

1) What is MDF?


Medium density fibreboard.

I always thought MDF was an 'Americanism'...
Now I'm wondering what you guys call it, because I'm sure you must have it  ;)

It is known by the same thing in the states. It is readily available at any Home Despot or Lowes. Some of them will even cut it into manageable sizes for you.

What a great little village :-)

Two quick questions:

1) What is MDF?

2) Did you actually use fabric for the canopies or a polymer clay?


1) The good captain has covered that one.

2) The awnings/canopies are made of tissue paper, glued on with PVA glue first, then diluted PVA and water was brushed on. When it dries it goes quite hard and can be painted.

What a great idea!  The effect looks really good.  Thanks for sharing :-)

Back to the oringinal question. Its made from balsa wood. Basically I cut the wood to fit the arched doorway, then cut many very thin strips of Balsa.
These were then attached to make the raised details on the doors. Its fiddly work and best done with tweezers etc. the hardest part was making the curved detailing around the tops of the doors, but the effect I think is ok.
