Bierkeller facade

Postby frankie » Tue Oct 11, 2016 4:07 pm

Taking s couple of my Fury tanks to a show so thought, as it's a tabletop display, I'd do a couple of building fronts to use as a backdrop. Made a start on a Bierkeller/hotel..

Looks good. I assume that is foamboard. If so, be wary when you paint it. I sprayed mine with acrylic using an airbrush,and it warped. The moist caused the paper fibres to shrink, warping it towards the sprayed side. That was Tamiya paint and Tamiya thinners. I did one other wall using a Tamiya rattle can and that was OK.

I searched on the Internet for German WW2 posters and then printer the images off. The details aren't great for full size prints but for 1/16th they look okay.

Now you need this lolImageImage
A type of resin carpet stuff I brought back from Dortmund intermodelbau last year, the cobbled street is already on a plinth but I also have a sheet of roof tiles and a few different wood plank sheets. The plinth is oversized for 1 tank or 2 at a push lol

That's some really good stuff Mike, I like that. I think it'd be a bit off overkill on these as they're only acting as a back drop for a one day show..lol

Not overkill for your cracking tanks bud and even your buildings are looking cracking. I bought the stuff with a view to making a display stand for photos etc , just never got round to the building yet lol

The quality of these is excellent, makes you wonder why no one out there makes 1/16 scenery as there is a demand for it. I've done buildings etc, and it takes a looooong time to build anything that is strong enough to resist a godawful heavy tank running into and remaining unscathed. Excellent designs there Frank. :thumbup:
