Another thing you can use for a base is dry floral foam. You can get six blocks of it for $1.50... that's about an 8 inch by 20 inch rectangle 3-4 inches high. See a tutorial for a quick and easy dio base here

Hola Basturk!

Foam Board is a piece of foam inbetween two card board pieces. Great for buildings etc. Look at your art store for it

Hola Guys!

Ok, the show is on! This is what I have todate finished:

The base is finished, 6" x 4" x 13" are the dimensions. Its primed and ready for finishing.

The tower if 95% finished still, need to add some bolts and then its ready for painting.

The Water Tank is 95% finished. Added the copper shell and about 210 bolts so far, need to add some more bolts and weld seems. Its not too much fun :

The next steps are:

Start the wall facade in foam board and resin window frames (Wood might be used instead)

Figure sculpting need to comence, just awaiting the new fresh shipment of Magic Sculpt.

Ground work will be started as soon as the base is finished.

Water tower to be primed and painted then weathered.

And thats about it for now Will keep you posted on further progress and pictures are soon to come!
