Airfix House.

I bought a couple of the Airfix Houses that they have released over recent years. This little cottage looks like it would be great for Arnhem. I added the base and extra rubble made from Linka bits. I wasn’t too taken by the square hole in the roof but they resin is too tough and brittle for any tool I’ve got in the shed to work with so I had to leave it.

The front.

The front.

The back.

The back.

Cheers,

Pete.

    A Dremel tool won’t touch the resin? I used one plus an electrical sander on resin vehicles. Admittedly, if the resin is like the MBA buildings the sander wouldn’t work but The Dremel tool should?

      It’s an almost ceramic material, my hobby tool is high on speed but low on torque so not much use to be honest… It is the same material that Hornby use for their railway model buildings if you are familiar with that?

    The square hole isn’t too bad. Nice looking model overall.

      Thanks Sean, painting a black blog around it to represent soot goes someway to masking it… I’ve got a second one so I’ll try to do something different with it.

  3. That house really looks nice Pete! you did a Super job. I too use Linka for bits of rubble. I have and awful hard time tho getting a full Linka building:( Even using Dental stone. I need to try get a few more molds I mainly just use the solid Brick wall molds I have two. Then I carve windows. This seems to work best. I have the Brick Linka Window molds but the ones I have are not great they look odd:( Need to see if they have better ones now.
    Take care my friend
