Kennel Lane, Broadway - Construction part two

The roof sections were cut from the same blue artboard before being glued in place with superglue and PVA glue. I added strips of scrap balsawood to the inside corners to give more area for the glue to stick to.

The doorways and openings were backed with more artboard before I covered the whole building with strips of torn newspaper which were glued in place with PVA glue and then sealed with more PVA glue. This 'core' provides a very strong basis on which to add DAS modelling clay as well as providing strength to the thin artboard panels.

I would always recommend over-engineering the basic core as the amount of time and materials that will be invested in this model warrant a firm basis on which to proceed.
