Is the battlefield now complete ?
Can you take photos to show us of it ?


Hello Tigger,
excuse me that I answer to your question so late. Our new battle ground isn't ready yet. We've begun only end of last year with cutting up our jungle. Thereafter we had wintertime and that's why a long break. In the next months we have many to do; we hope, that we could turn our first rounds with our tanks there in June. If you're interested at our progress please take from time to time a look to our homepage and our forum; you can find the link in my signature. ;)

After I’ve finished my roof it goes on now at the lower part of my barn. Still missing bricks were supplemented,…

Image

Image

Image

…followed from grouting and sanding.

Image

A few flaws have been shown, not all of them I’ve eliminated.

Image

As finish has all bricks receive a painting of heavily thinned Latex Binder. Thereby has the stonework receive a stronger surface. Photos…

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

At the end for today an outlook, what in the next part will come – the barn doors.

Image

Until then…

Before I came to my barn doors, just short to another step. Maybe that you’ve wondered about the length of my barn doors; here is the reason for that. I‘ve conserved meanwhile the upper part and I’ve cut out the base for my masonry.

Image

This base will receive a corresponding structure – this will be described later.

Image

Good to see is, that the base was not used in one piece, so I hope to receive a better floor contact for my barn.

Image

Image

The basis for my door wings are plywood plates. On each door wing were thereafter ice handles glued. The hinges for the door wings as usual; this time a bit stronger dimensioned. Here always the left door wing.

Image

Thereafter followed a few details…

Image

…at this way, I’ve covered the horizontal shocks of my ice handles.

Image

Here this view a bit closer…

Image

The second door wing follows; again a view from a short distance…

Image

…and a view a bit further away.

Image

Also at insides receives the doors a few details…

Image

A view both wings opened; conservation follows next…

Image

So much again for today…

Before painting is still a lock at the doors needed. I decided me for a kind of barrier; used was also ice cream handles.

Image

In the horizontal position is the gate locked based on the four fixing points.

Image

Turned the bar to the top gives three points free and the gate is moveable.

Image

Image

Image

Thereafter receive the insides also a bit more structure.

Image

Image

So far for today.

Hello Rad_Schuhart,
thank you for your kindly words. :thumbup:
To your question. If you need some evenly bricks for your model is my used method not useful.
I've taken a ceramic clay that will dry at the air. I’ve kneaded the clay and thereafter rolled out with a rolling pin. I've used no shape, rather cut only with a sharp knife. For this reason are the bricks only at two sides dimensionally accurate. The third dimension was sanded and receive in this way a acceptable look.
For evenly bricks you must use shapes. If you need no large quantities can you buy the bricks also at various dealers.

That's some amazing work. Most impressive. I keep expecting a whole bunch of tiny little Pennsylvania Dutchmen to rush out and start working on it, like they do at a barn-raising. It's going to look great in photos and videos with tanks. Now I'm wondering how to make hay and hay bales. Hmmmm 8) @)

In my last report was he at some photos already to see – the barn socket. Today’s report goes about the shaping of my barn socket; used was a 25-mm thick Styrodur plate. To give their edges a fieldstone structure I’ve used my hot wax scraper machine.

Image

All contours are free hand manufactured; if you come with the hot peak near the plate, so their skin will shrink. On this way you can adjust the surface according to your taste.

Image

Represented is a double layer from natural stones;…

Image

…at some points were also the surface a bit irregularly shaped.

Image

Image

Thereafter were the fugues with acrylic paint in dark grey painted.

Image

Image

After drying was the surface of the stones with Latex binder brushed and thereafter with fine East sea sand sprinkled.

Image

After drying I’ve used my airbrush and on this way receive the surface a light silver paint.

Image

Image

The structure was inside the barn not complete executed…

Image

…a complete colouring on both sides in this area is done.

Image

Image

So far for today…
