Arab village under construction

Posted by dykio on 27 Jan 2020, 20:12

Hi Guys,

As some of you might have seen i have painted some arabs and ffl some time ago.

http://bennosfiguresforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23013&p=252453&hilit=ffl#p252453

Now after looking at the briljant houses of Bill and learning a lot of his method (thanks Bill !!):

http://bennosfiguresforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=23069

i decided that my ffl and arabs needed a place to get together and talk about bennosfiguresforum. And i also decided to make them smaller then in the real world because my space isnt that big. And i made them a little bit fantasy like because so they have some more possibilities to use. Now no more talking but pictures !!

First some briljant drawnings :-D

then a lot of gluing
Image

and…. more gluing
Image

the first lair of paint
Image

more paint and some balsa wood doors and windows
Image

and trying out the first lay out
Image

Next up the bases and some extra details.... to be continued

Hi dykio,
I like your planning and your execution. It looks like a complete village or small town. Very good effect and efficiency.
Watching this with pleasure

Hello dykio, my Forum friend, it has been so cool looking at what you`ve been up to.
Love the photographs... showing some good ideas put into practice that`s for sure.
A great fun filled display. :thumbup: It reminded me of Timbuctoo Mali. BB

I like very much the complete construction process from the initial designs to the final result. You have achieved a superb Arab village, even without being totally finished, dykio. :notworthy:

Congratulations. :thumbup:
