Chinese Hutong Buildings in 28mm- Update 24May21
« on: January 01, 2017, 09:52:21 PM »
Happy New Years All! Am starting to build a Chinese hutong for my Back of Beyond and 2nd Sino-Japanese War gaming, and just finished the first block of buildings today:



More photos and details can be found on the blog:

Very nice! Is that a bead being used as a planter? What sources did you use for architectural inspiration?

Thanks Everyone!

Very nice! Is that a bead being used as a planter? What sources did you use for architectural inspiration?

Yep, picked up a bunch of beads to use as pots:


For inspiration, I've used Jimbibbly's work and photos of Hutongs on Google Images:

Stunning. Looks more like a computer rendering than a model. That's amazing.  :-*

Really really nicely done! The 'block' rather than just a single building is a wonderful idea, as is the simplicity of design which still captures the right look so well. Will visit your blog hoping to see what is behind the facades.
