Art board (thick card)
Foam Sheet (Like what's in the middle of foam core board. From the art store.)
X-acto Knife (with fresh blade)
The concept is a Chinese restaurant or tea house. This is because I love John Woo movies. It is a single-storey building with a flat roof, multiple entry/exit points and plenty of space to move figures about. The model is built on one of my handmade "pavement" tiles for placement on a large road surface mat.
Tacky glue was used because it dries faster. You could use PVA just as well, but you might have to pin or clamp the walls while it dries.
There is nothing difficult here, just a lot of straight cuts. There was also no real plan when I started, it just developed as it was put together. Sure it took an evening to make, but I look at that as an evening of entertainment in front of the TV rather than a chore. It was also very very cheap.
Planned next is some extra detail here and there, including the kitchen piece from Khurasan's Noodle shop model and some low cover on the roof to make it a bit more interesting. Because Foam board has been used for the walls, it will be easy to scribe in some detail as well.
Thanks for looking!
