Ned's Shed

Postby NedFlanders » Mon Aug 19, 2019 12:02 am

The authorities have deemed that a Castle is required for the layout.... the fact that the track hasn't been laid yet doesn't come into it apparently.

Anyhowdy, a spot of browsing for a castle/folly showed up the Scalescenes castle - https://scalescenes.com/product/t020-castlefolly/ - which I think will do a fine job.

But better to walk before I try to run. So I printed out a couple of huts courtesy of Mike of Wordsworth fame and picked the corrugated hut - Thanks Mike.

I cut out the door and window and put a layer with them on the inside to give it some more relief. I also printed out a Lintel and stuck it on for the same reason. I'm very happy with the result after it being a good while since doing the low relief warehouse last year. :)

After I took the photo I printed out a concrete base for it to both give it some more stability - no photo of that, sorry.

I think a couple of more huts, smaller buildings will follow so I felt it was time to start the workbench, so here I am now.

Cheerio,
Ned.

Looks nice. Often don't realize how small they are.

I know exactly what you mean. :lol:
Just by the by, I found these in the last couple of days:
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-72-Scale-M ... 1438.l2649

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Miniart-Assa ... 0005.m1851

They are 1/72 scale and possbily cheaper if you search around.
Also Airfix made a Sherwood Castle kit sometime ago.

And this one would look English if you didn't add the turret roofs.

Castle/Folly suggestions

Postby NedFlanders » Mon Aug 26, 2019 8:23 am

Thanks for your suggestions.

the Domestic Authorities reviewed them and picked the Scalescenes one.

I've also bought the Box File layout from them to also practice with - that should be entertaining.....

Cheerio,

Ned.

Hi Ned
I have built a couple of Scalescenes kits and they make up very nicely. I found that I was salvaging card from a variety of sources. Cornflake boxes are good along with cat food boxes.
