|The building walls all laid out |
|Second thickness of wall added.|
I'm working with 5mm foamboard, so a wall two sheets thick will be just over one foot (30cm) to scale for 54mm figures - 5mm thick walls just wouldn't look right imo.
|With the second thickness of wall added, rabbets were cut in the side wall|
|Quick trial fit - looking good enough for me !|
|Third wall layer added only to the arches bit|
|Reverse of above walls, showing they don't reach the top of the walls.|
The third layer of foamboard covering the inside of the arches, has a two fold purpose. Firstly it bulks out the pillars forming the arches and secondly as it's significantyl shorter that the other outer walls, it will act as a support for a roof (along with other internal walls) and form the parapet to the building.
|Mock-up showing the discrepancy in wall heights|
|All arches now cut through and the first (front) set of doorways cut out.|
|I'll also be needing a Bell Tower and this bit of scrap will come in really handy !|
