A reprint of an older article that first appeared on the Kapiti Fusiliers website. That site is now sadly defunct.

Just a tutorial on making 28mm buildings that look like the Conflix buildings that are commercially available.

Could you do one in 15mm and show us? :) (you 28mm guys get all the cool stuff)

@14Bore – just scale it down. I imagine it would look the same :)

That came out great. Looking at the foam you used, what thickness did you use? The photo above looks like 1 inch stuff, but the building photo looks like it is a thicker piece. I did not notice any seams.

I have only stumbled across one large size of foam, but that was at an nous trial construction site.

The foam was either 25 or 30 mm. The seams are there – just hidden under wooden beams.

I do love it, but you PAID what for the foam?
45thdiv@ you could cut it in half especially if working in small pieces

I thought I had a photo of the bottom. It is made from several complete pieces (it is not hollow). I will take a photo at some stage and update.

In New Zealand dollars the foam was less than thirty dollars (New Zealand pesos) for a 1.2x.6 metre sheet. I guess I used about a buck's worth for the two houses I made. I have no idea what you would pay in your neck of the woods.

Great link.

Thank you for posting it.

Stopped by Home Depot to get a few small tools I need and had to check out the foam. A " 2'x8' goes for less than $8 USD, a 1 " 2'x8' goes for $16 USD
