|The finished model, with Fred for scale, as Sid has gone AWOL!|
Once more MDF models have left me on the fence as to whether I like them or not.
The ready painted ones are certainly an up-grade to the more frequently sold unpainted versions for about double the cash!
|Redundant paint tray, put to use as my games table undergoes a change.|
I use un-watered PVA applied with a cocktail stick. MDF is like a sponge when it comes to applying anything liquid. As the walls and thin fiddly bits are all 2mm MDF the sponge-like qualities of MDF makes them very easy to break - not a good thing if, like me, you have chipolatas for fingers and the joins are as precise as something NASA would build.
|You can't have too many clips|
|The first two walls go up|
|The front wall and patio caused many, many problems for me|
|The broken front right porch upright, is hardly noticeable|
|Front door - nearly thrown in the bin!|
All of my problems were generally the tight fit of many of the components, so with my next build (another shotgun shack), I'll be filing all the tags down a bit and their location holes a little larger.
|Front door, from the front (duh!)|
|Finished at last, though roof needs work done on it!|
|Front door, but notice the painted railing tops|
|Right side and rear porch|
|The left side and rear|
|Left side and front(ish)|
|Internal view from above, showing all the doors open|
|Obligatory boring picture of rook (needs a lot of work imo)|
|Front door, looking decidedly dodgy|
|And the back door/room (not quite so dodgy)|
|Two pieces of furniture and the room is full!|
|Front room with stove, cabinet, a table and two chairs|
That's it then for this week, thanks for taking the tine to visit; I hope you've found something of interest.
