Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Last couple of pics for now, I'm going to try to do some proper plastering on the weekend. You'll notice I also glued a 'light' that I got from a 40k bit box, but you can make your own out of sculpey or beads or both.

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 8. Create some supports for the upper floor. Let's go back to the larger stone section and put in some 'supporting' beams for the upper floor. For this I used larger chunks of balsa, cut sections out of the foam just below the upper section and going roughly 5-7mm deep. Use some pva glue to sti...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 5. After you've done all sides of the roof we're going to cap the edges. To do this cut a rectangular strip, approximately 10mm wide, and in excess of the length you need to cap. Once you've cut it, score down the centre with the scalpel or Stanley knife as I've done in the strip in the picture...

Step 4. Glue them down. You'll have a bit of trouble with pva glue attaching to the plastic I think, but if you do go with pva make sure you rough up the underside of the plastic to grip it better. But the hot glue gun is much much faster; you will have no drying time required :) Note the interestin...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 2. Cutting the tiles. Next we want to cut this piece so that it appears to be made of individual tiles. To do this either find the centre or wherever you want to start and from the bottom cut a slice 3/4 of the height, you can do this with scissors, it's much safer and controlled. Then very car...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Phase 2 Alrighty, let's begin phase 2 of the tutorial; cleaning this house up a bit and adding decorations. For the record, I'm making this up as I go, I prepare parts of the model and then if it works I report it, but I've not done this before now, so take my instructions with a grain of salt and ...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 27. More roofing. Make sure it's overhanging the level below, cut these blocks to whichever angle you like as with the earlier roof description. I decided I wanted an old-timey style sunlight, I'll need to fill it later to smooth it out to represent glass but I have carefully cut out the frame ...
