firstly i had a few moments last night so ended the evening by painting up my first cowboy for this town . I should say second but the first lad has vanished. well i was asked if i would show how i built these puppies so here we go
Firstly you'll need : 3mm Balsa, 5mm Balsa backing cardboard a pen or something else to score the card a ruler wood glue sharp hobby knife.
Firstly i cut out the shape of the house in the backing cardsmall houses 50mm high
then i score the balsa 5mm between each score below is the scored card cut and glued for the next building a large saloon two stories high.
I've used the 5mm balsa for the ends of the fence 3mm for the middle with strips along the back as well. had to add the out house . three windows still to go on this model then the slate roof and she is ready for the paint

I traded my russian flames of war army a few years back for two ACW armies but i always felt as though i had made a mistake doing so, so last week i made an offer to my friend Richard to get them back and they turned up today it's an infantry army but has the beginnings of a mec army which i will next year fill out so it covers all options to field mid and late war.
Oh the fun of charging across the fields while my friends mow me down

Well i decided to put down the brush tonight and then went mad ordered nearly 100 pounds worth of Dixon old west minatures and then sat down and started to build another building for the town. I'm hoping to build around ten different buildings I've built the barn an out house and nearly finished the small hotel.
