Easy & Basic House

Postby Tankbear » Sat Jul 28, 2012 8:04 pm

He's my quick guide to easy house.

First take cardboard package and two lids from a A4 paper supplier. (most offices will get them)

Image

Cut the two lids and stick together to form a 90 degree angle then cut the rest to suit the roof shape.

Image

Then find some basic brick and roof tile images off the internet and make it cover an A3 sheet of paper. Print out on A3 paper then glue to the box.

Image

Scale wise probably too small for a house but is large enough to hide a tank behind so cannot be shot.

Image

I'm going to add doors and windows in same way as I had the walls & roof but haven't yet decided to do to scale or so it looks correct for the box size.

Cheers mate.

Think a log cabin would look good but think the pattern be difficult to match on edges so we see.

No more buildings built, just haven't had timw with working on the tanks. I'm at moment making a panzerturm from spare parts complete with IR firing (hopefully automatic) so will post that when I figure a few bits out.

The tanks are 1:16.

Hey Ian, which turret did you end up using on the Panzerturm ? I used my old HL Panther G for one but was almost tempted to get a Pantiger just to get the Panther A turret which would have be more accurate.

(seems the older pictures aren't loading any more :( )

did you go by anything when you put that together or pretty much what ever looked good to you?



i'm looking at trying something similar but using styrafoam shipping coolers.

moms been getting these styra-foam coolers with her insulyn in them. i have a few now and until the other day was planing to make pirate looking cooler chest but looking at someone else on a large sacle diorama FB page, i got the idea of trying to use them for 1:6 scale basic pill-boxes. as these would see some really hard hits (paint balls, some at point blank range) i'm thinking of coating them with 3 layers of plaster & paris (or wet flower?) and letting that dry for a few days, then add about 4 or 5 layers of regular fiberglass to give it a really hard shell. after that (or maybe before) gut out for the view port.

if anyone has done anything like this, please let me know how it turned out.

i'm going to try one (no sense in messing them all up) in a few weeks when i get the time and see how it works out. if it works out i may try doing the same but with cardboard boxes.

I can still see the older pics on this thread.

This was purely out of my head, in fact it developed as I made it. I've tweaked it a bit since I took these pictures.
