Being a modeller for quite a few years now, I decided to explore the endless possibilities that the world (through internet) offers, and come up with a series of ways of building, modelling and painting fast (but not hastily), to create the worlds I was seeing in history books since I was little. . .If you care to join me. . . This is the place to be! And, I promise you to find the way (or ways)!!

How to make a: Barn

Greetings everyone,

Hope you are all well.
Today I prepared a new video (perhaps it will be my new trend) for a model Barn I made.

It took me a piece of paper to get this:

And prepare this:


As you will see in the video it is somehow versatile, and can be used in various eras, from Middle Ages to WW2.


I hope you like it.

If you have any questions on the method I used for making the model, please do not hesitate to ask.

  2. Awesome video and barn. I might switch out balsa for my coffee stirrers though. Need to get some vinyl tiles.

    1. Thank you James, you can always use some mdf for the base if you have some already available - no need to go over some new expenses.

  3. Nice.

    One piece of advice. Try cutting the balsa freehand rather than using a knife. It gives a more realistic effect.

    1. Thanks for the tip Tony, didn't think of that to be honest. Next post will be about something totally irregular. :)

  6. I have just realised that I made a mistake in my earlier post!

    I meant to say don't use a ruler - but cut the Balsawood freehand (with a knife) for a more natural effect.

    Sorry.
