Well I am making quick progress with models for my Salute game for this year. The first section of the board only needs a frontier cabin to make a farmstead. I was going to make a log cabin from balsa dowel but as I want the whole model to come apart, as does all my skirmish scenery, I decided that logs would be way too much hassle. So I settled on balsa planking.
The model has been designed with various bits of furniture (which will feature in a future post) so it must come apart. It is only one large room, as it should be and a stone fire place made from plaster bricks. Balsa floor boards and plastic windows help to give detail.
The roof comes off, leaving the roof of the verandah and on the animal shed that is attached.
I aim to paint this model in the next week, then I will have everything ready fro the first third of the board and can be play testing the scenario for this part of the game. Come back and see this in its finished form next week.
