So this week I decided to set things right and make them bases. The first step was to decide on the size with some thin card that would be the bottom layer. This involved a lot of manipulating buildings and bits of sidewalk, and trying to measure very odd dimensions while things kept shifting.
The sidewalks I'm using are 15S-TAO-105 12mm wide pavements. The set comes with enough lengths and corner pieces to go around 2x two door terraces and 2x three door terraces. I used some of the spare pieces and cut them to make the depth of the gardens.
Once everything was cut out it was time to glue it down and leave under a board with a heavy jug on top to make sure they dried flat.
I then used scrap MDF board from the left over frames and cut out garden walls, gluing them in place with the quick setting Aileen's Tacky Glue.
Then paint and flock.
While I was at it, I added a German propaganda poster to one end wall, tearing it and scrawling graffiti from an angry local.
So I started building up some layers to give a shape, gradually using smaller pieces to give the basic form.
