Let's Get back to Business. . .


Here is a new group of buildings that I was asked to design and assemble last winter, and, as you can see, I need to get moving now that school has finished for a while.  Not much to look at yet, and I've had some trouble with the gable on the building in the middle of the picture, but things will improve once assembly and painting are complete.  Then, it's on to the final two small items which are part of this collection of buildings.  

Hopefully, I can make serious progress this weekend and get very close to finishing these.  Painting is the easy part though.  When dealing with angles and trimming cardboard, cursing a poor fit, stabbing yourself with the hobby knife, cursing some more, and finally gluing everything together, well, it kind of takes time.  Ok, enough talking about it.  Time to get going again.  After all, these buildings won't assemble and paint themselves, will they?

Indeed. Get weaving young Swartz! I haven't read of a game in these pages in months.

Buildings coming along a treat - keep it up...

Nice. I think we're spoilt over here in the UK. I've just been to a show and there are makers of buidings selling complete, painted hand built houses for £20.
