Arica Harbour - Buildings (WIP) Part 3

Some more work on the first of the two-storey houses - this shows the basic layout of the upper storey - as with the ground floor, the internal walls are glued to the flooring, with the external walls detachable, to represent damage, as in the Battlefield Bad Company 2 Game.


Have added some more balsa wood to the stairs - still needs tidying up, but the painting stage will help.



The balconies are only 18mm high, so that kneeling figures can stick their rifles over the edge. The upper level external walls are 65mm high, so that there is a lip to the roof, once it is added.



A quick photo to show the height differential that is beginning to build up on the table - needless to say, there is still a LONG way to go, on this project.

Arica Harbour - Buildings (WIP) Part 2

Now that the basic table is completed, i've started work upon the rest of the buildings. Many of these will be two-stories, but will follow the basic principles of the test model, ie they must fit on a 6 inch square template, with the internal walls being glued to to the base, and teh outer walls detachable, to represent damage.

The internal walls are made of 3mm foamboard, with thin balsawood to line the floor, and stairs. The upper storey will then rest upon the internal walls...at least that is the plan!
