Battlefield Outhouse

Postby silversurfer1947 » Sun Nov 27, 2016 11:53 am

A while back, Bristol Armoured Division was given an electronic panzerfaust (made by RC Tanks Australia). Rob 3D printed a housing for it and I produced a little vignette of a machine gun and crew to accompany the panzerschrek operator. With the speaker and battery housing, everything was a tight fit inside and the housing was a little under scale, so I decided to make something more suited. This is what I have finished up with.

I have politely called it a brick outhouse. However, it is a small brick building, usually found at the bottom of the garden of a house with no mains drainage.

I used stencils from here http://www.craft-products.com/dolls-house-exterior.asp They produce a huge variety of different designs and 3 coloured brick compounds. I used the stone stencils for the 2 houses that I made.

There's a world of difference between a brick ****house and a V1 launch ramp, which comes in at a scale 3 metres long! A man's got to know his limitations. (Harry Callahan - Magnum Force.)

I even looked at the cost of a V1 model :D Part of what put me off is that the ramp was basically a steel structure, with supporting girders. Had it just been concrete, it would have stood more of a chance, though we would have had to look for a much larger battlefield.

Fantastic Richard,

How about building a V2, if you have nothing else better to do

Top work as always
