Factory ruin?

Post by Richard B. » 08 Dec 2019, 10:39

As you will have noticed I have been messing around building ruined sections of terrain.

My next plan is to produce at least one (probably 2 due to dimensions) more industrial looking areas.

What I really need are factory/industrial walls type bits?? Any ideas guys???

All pointers, images or website details much appreciated :D :D :D

They do them in various styles and types of brick , probably more chance of getting them at a Railway Model Shop ,or one of the larger online generic model/rail shops ,seen them at £4 to £4.50 ,easy to work with and really good detail ,especially the stone sheets. If you get stuck , let me know , cheers John

Richard
If you are thinking substantial ruins you might want to try out one or more of these as a starter:

PS
Of course access to foam board (and sharp knife for cutting ruined walls) and PVA glue and a mdf or hardboard or plywood base may be a cheaper start point?

Enjoy whatever you do and look forward to the photos.
