|Yes, the roof is on crookedly !|
They were however a great learning step in my model making, with the new improved roofs being a step up from the Japanese castle ones and the Temple ones.
It's obvious that the roofs are made from corrugated card but are laid on a stepped roof underneath.
The walls are 3mm foam-board (yep 3mm!) and after these were made and I stepped up to 5mm foam-board I realised the joy of rabbeting corners, *I have a duplicate of the one shown that didn't survive over the years.
|The above with roof removed (based on "The Student House" in the British Legation 1900)|
|A single story building acting as a visitor's Reception to the Legation|
|Above Building with roof removed (bit too obvious ?)|
|Another smaller two-story building -note unfinished roof ridges.|
|Another single storey building|
|Five out of the six or seven buildings intended for the British Legation|
|The real thing (now used by State Security !)|
|My unfinished rendition|
|Rear view, built using the thickest cardboard I had|
|Wrecked vuilding with compund wall and figure for scale|
So that's it then for another week, one in which I've managed zero hobby input and am still relying on posts that allow me to wallow in nostalgia - sorry.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you've found something of interest and as always your comments are both welcomed and appreciated.
