Iberian Windmill - update



This is not the first time that I have featured this particular model on the blog. For details of the earlier post see this link. However I have recently repaired the sails and thought it was worth adding these images.

The model was built some years ago from DAS covered corrugated cardboard, card and balsawood with the sails modelled from skewers. I had damaged the sails and the cotton rigging after attending the West Midlands Military Show, Alumwell in March this year and thought it was time that I repaired them.

The simple model is one of my all-time favourite scratch-built terrain models, one that I am very proud of. It was inspired by an image I had found in a Portuguese tourism guide picked up at a local travel agents and although simple in design and construction I think the model is just perfect for showing how I build and paint my terrain pieces.

Unfortunately, I do not have any work-in-progress shots to show how it was built and painted.
