Hello. Making a step by step How To tutorial on making a basic wall section and small (4 inch long) building in a "Boxer Rebellion" scratchbuild.

Always better to build subcomponents, 4-6 inches at a time. A. They are sturdier and more versatile, and B you get better with every build, so you can eliminate the first unit of crap you build, and don't have ONE large one piece Legation that is crappy on one side and gets nicer as it goes along :) Been there, done that. :(

Taking pictures, and it is my easy peasy system that I use to make those cute Old Mexico and Sudan adobe builds.

I will be doing this in 5real time while watchin g the Canes baseball game at 7:00pm.

(if my system didn't allow you to watch sports and movies while you work, I wouldn't have it)

Follow me on Facebook. Freind Request Bart Allen, Vero Beach Fl.

It will all be on FB tonight. Later, I will make it into a PDF and post it here, but with all t6he crap you go through uploading photobucket, it won't be tomorrow.

Get your spackle, acrylic paint, a Exacto, a metal ruler, foamboard and a piece of corregated cardstock like from MKichaels scrap book section, some tacky glue, and a few random pieces and scraps of balsa and granny mesh, and get ready to build with Smokey.

Learn fromn a master! (I sold stuff on Ebay, that makes me a Master, right?) :)

We are cranking along! Watching baseball, drinking the scotch, and building one heck of a Peking legation wall and building section! You guys are missing out!

Without FB, we have very little choice but to miss out

Did the pdf ever get made and posted, Smokey? With the Blue Moon stuff coming out, I'm interested. I know they have resin stuff coming out as part of the release, but I may only get part of that as showpieces and fill in Peking with scratchbuilt stuff.
