Fort sahara

Posted by blockhaus on 06 Nov 2010, 09:27

Hello all.
this is toy fort for my youngest guy. I take as inspiration the Airfix fort,but a biy more complex,and was populated with italer foreign legion figures.I do it in wood 5 mm. thick painted with acrilics mixed with shawdust.All material came from a a wine bottles box.

Was a funny and fast project, and client was satisfied with the result :-)

Looks grand. I tell you what...my son got me back into the hobby...firstly I started building ships and castles for him..then getting the 1/32nd bods to go with them...then thinking "if I painted this one or changed the sword on this etc"...next thing I knew I´d bought some LOTR bods...then some WWII 22mm ones and................ :-)
That could be a fun thread...what I built for my kids (Hobby related) :-) :-)

This is - super! Everything looks just great and professional! :thumbup: :thumbup:
But there is the question: What for a wonderful house visible in the background? (He had wooden? He is Russian?) 8)

a entrance castle with two exagonal towers
Alex,
This background house is a russian house.but at 1/35 scale, I´m not sure if I can put a photo of she in this forum, but I will be happy send you a private email with some photos of my russian works.
As interested in Russian history and wood architecture I like a lot make russian houses, but most part of my work is 1/35.
This is my first 1/72 russian house, that was done in soviet times, in this time graphic information about Russia was scarce and I only have photos from wartime done mainly by germans

:cheers: :cheers: :thumbup: :thumbup: This is great!! How many of us with sprogs have made siege towers etc?? I also have a siege tower, catapult and a battering ram that I made from old bits of wood...in 1/32nd scale, all of which work :-) :-)
I did wonder about the house in the background...I was trying to work out wether it was a 1/72nd one or bigger... :-)
