That very cool. I have used the mesh for floors but never thought to use them for doors and wall decorations.

If you pick the right size and colour, you can use it for windows as well, cutting out interior bits when necessary.

Nice Fine thanks for sharing ;D

Windows for 15mm buildings. I've also used them as doors and windows for 1/300 buildings.

Thanks, I have just bought some for making screen style windows but see it has lots of other uses love the patterns for furniture which could be very useful. Cheers

Those patterns are amazing, right?

Interesting, thanks!

Those patterns are excellent!
(They don't look too hard to pull off either)

Yes, this stuff is great.

Neat stuff. Is that a 28mm figure or a 15mm?

Personal logo Cacique Caribe Supporting Member of TMP03 Oct 2013 3:56 p.m. PST

That's one of my 15mm on a washer, and a 25mm round slotted plastic base in front of it.


Sundance Supporting Member of TMP03 Oct 2013 6:36 p.m. PST

Cool! Better than I thought. I thought that was a 25/28 on the base.

I made ladders, doors, fences and windows out of mine. Mainly 28mm stuff. I would love to get hold of the patterns that are available in the US. I haven't seen them here in the UK.

Yeah, I think I am going to have to get some of this stuff. Toss another brick in the pile of projects…

I use the stuff by the bagful – looks great on black foamboard:

I have deduced a way to use this stuff to make 10mm armies , check out the campaign here on Kickstarer we have 9 days to go and we are about 50% funded, any help at all to make this budget wargaming idea a reality is so appreciated!

It reminds me of hair roller armies – from the 80's?

Me too

Thanks for the suggestions and pictures
I have some Arab houses to build in 28mm – this is going to be nice :)
Simple window frames and barred windows is a killer idea – Thanks

I used it to make Alien looking plants with. Just trim to the desired shape and add a little heat to give it that organic look.
