from the tutorial:
"The roof section has a distinctive grid pattern to its supports. I pondered over how to replicate this for quite a while before deciding on a base of wire mesh. This is a good compromise between looking like the original and being strong enough to survive play.
I glued matchsticks to the mesh for the exposed roof struts.
Thin cardboard tiles from the back of a pad of paper finish (it)."

It looks as always brilliant. I did many of the tenements on your site and will be using them in a Stalingrad game that I will be running in the New Year.

My question is this though 'what do you use Marmite for on your modeling table'? Laughing

Some clever modelling there and a great end result it does look so similar to the airfix one.

thanks for showing us.
