Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 25. Balcony railing. This was probably the trickiest part, I don't really have a solid way to do this. I cut roughly the same length struts of square rod balsa (10-13mm long) and glued them upright. I kept the railing as one whole piece and just made a nick on the outside where I wanted it to b...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Here are some more pictures of the vertical and horizontal planks. In the second picture here, note that I didn't follow the advice I gave about keeping the planks thin, the middle plank on the right hand side and vertical planks on the side facing the camera are noticeably thicker - I will be carvi...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 24. Balcony planks. I actually did this step prior to doing the outside wall planks. It'll depend on how you've designed your house whether you'll have a balcony anyway. Cut into the foam in straight lines about 1-2mm thick as you did previously with the door. I bordered mine first by cutting a...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 23. Start applying wooden planks. Get creative with this, I mostly glue them to outline this level and as support underneath. You can do diagonals as well if you like, it's a bit trickier and you'll need to cut 45 degree angles on the ends of the planks to fit them against the horizontal and ve...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 21. Miniature bricks. These are going to follow the process from before with the larger stone bricks but you'll need to use the tip of the scalpel and take your time a bit more with these ones. I aimed to have these bricks about 1-1.5mm high and 2-3mm wide. Do the long strokes first, going in a...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

As a continuation from previous steps, here's a better picture of the overhang. Step 20. Now, if you followed the slow method of cutting multiple times as described way back around step 4, then you should have a relatively smooth surface to work with. We are going to mess this up a bit so find an ar...

Re: Tutorial: Foamboard house

Step 17. Time for another level. So for this I wanted to make it a bit different, but maybe for your first house keep it plain and simple with a rectangle. We are aiming to have this level larger than the one below it to make it interesting - if it's the same length and width as the stone level belo...

Re: Foamboard table

Thanks guys, I really want to push to get this section of 2x4 foot done by this Saturday - that's the current goal. If I can do that I'll have some more pics and with any luck I'll have mounted it all on the mdf frame I've built. @Artificial Soul: As for a table and chair, I'd love to have that leve...
