Tarting-up MDF - an article for Wargames Soldiers and Statergy

The latest issue of Wargames Soldiers and Strategy (issue 83) contains an article written by me called Make MDF Look Real or Tarting-up MDF.

The basic MDF building from Timeline Miniatures was used as the core of this re-built 28mm farm building or out-house.

The walls were raised and the doors made bigger.....

Before the walls were clad with DAS modelling clay.

And the roof sculpted in both DAS and vacuum formed plastic roof tiles. The article details how I attempted to build a simple MDF building straight from the box, but in the end, ended up re-building almost every detail.

Details of W,S&S can be found here.
