A Fistful of Lead [29]

Another small building put together today in the shape of a Warbases stable block, once again roofed in corrugated card which is my new favourite material for this sort of thing. It's a very simple kit but will be useful as an extra building for the town or for a ranch. I've also started on the railroad station using a Warbases North American farmhouse as the main structure to which I will add some more lean-to extensions. The platform is made from various mdf bases and will be clad in coffee stirrer planking, after which I'll add some sub-structure so that it doesn't look like it's floating in mid-air!


  1. The cardboard corrugated iron is looking perfect!

  2. I save up the insulating (corrugated) cardboard sleeves you can get with take-away coffee for exactly such roofing purposes. I drink a lot of coffee...

  3. That's a good tip...I'll have to pop out to Costa more often!
