10mm Aspern Essling build

After seeing the larger 28mm version of building base 1, one of my regular clients has asked for me to replicate it in 10mm to match the existing ones I've already done for him (see the 10mm Napoleonic labels).

Quite the challenge as 10mm is a lot smaller than 28mm so some of the details will have to be reduced somewhat and I've had to do the timbering in a different way. Basically lasered 0.5mm acrylic following the same sort of arrangement as the last one.

Just the rear building for now but the others are drawn up and will be cut out, hopefully this coming week.

The glazing is back sprayed acrylic with the transoms/mullions scored on (with the laser) then filled with acrylic paint which is scrapped off leaving paint in the score lines.

The basic layout is shown in the first picture and for those that don't know, the coin (20p) is just over 21mm from base to tip.

    1. Thanks :-)

      It's the architectural modelmaker in me and it's nice to mix the two disciplines together.

      cheers
